After last year’s Six Nations was hit by the coronavirus outbreak, this year’s edition has so far enjoyed better luck – admittedly without fans in stadiums.
In the second round, England put that dreary loss to Scotland behind them with victory over Italy, while Scotland were unable to follow up their opening-round win, losing to Wales. Ireland were hoping to forget about their 14-man loss in Cardiff, but got narrowly beaten by tournament favourites, France.
Eddie Jones’ reigning champions have three home fixtures this year with the Scots, Italy and much-fancied France all having to travel to HQ.
The tournament reaches its climax on Saturday, March 20 – Super Saturday – with all six teams in action. Kick-off times are staggered so Scotland v Italy is up first followed by two crunching clashes in the afternoon and evening – Ireland v England and France v Wales.
What a feast of rugby to look forward to this year! Here’s the full Six Nations 2021 fixtures list and TV schedule…
