Six Nations

The most unusual sporting year in history continues to jolt and twist along with rescheduled competitions coming up left, right and centre. Next up, it’s the Six Nations.


The international rugby tournament almost made it through four entire rounds of fixtures before the competition was put on ice.

Crowds of up to 80,000 people flooded into stadiums in March, a thought and image that feels like an awfully long time ago given the empty stadiums we’ve grown accustomed to in the months since.

The Six Nations was one of the first major tournaments to be slammed by COVID-19, but organisers will plough ahead with finally finishing up the 2020 edition, albeit still without fans in stands.

The crown is still wide open, but players will need to strike back to their very best form to stand a chance of claiming the title in October.

Ireland face Italy to complete the fourth round of games, and an expected victory could draw them level with England and France at the top.

England’s final weekend clash against Italy feels like a formality, pushing all the pressure onto their rivals as the competition roars back to life. has rounded up the full Six Nations fixture list below – including details of how to watch every match.
