This is it – Super Saturday has arrived. The Six Nations draws to a close (sort of) this weekend with three highly-charged fixtures and plenty at stake for almost every team.

Wales can win an unlikely Grand Slam if they topple France in Paris, while defending champions England are eyeing up the 'best of the rest' mantle when they take on Ireland after enduring a poor tournament so far.

Scotland face Italy in what should be a routine win for Gregor Townsend's men, but all eyes will be firmly set on that France v Wales game in the primetime evening slot.

Should France come out on top, they still have one more fixture to play – a rescheduled clash with Scotland due to a COVID outbreak – and a genuine shot at lifting the trophy.

Some of the best rugby players in the world will line up for England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France and Italy during the final full weekend of the 2021 tournament, but who will come out on top?

RadioTimes.com has rounded up the full list of Six Nations 2021 fixtures below, including details of how to watch every match.

When is the Six Nations 2021?

The Six Nations started on Saturday 6th February 2021 and it will run until Saturday 20th March 2021.

Organisers will hope this year's competition can go ahead in one fell swoop, as opposed to the curtailed and restarted tournament in 2020.

Who won the Six Nations in 2020?

England triumphed in the 2020 edition of the Six Nations. Eventually.

Eddie Jones' men were made to wait seven months for the February/March tournament to be concluded at the end of October.

They drew level on table points with France – who actually defeated England in their opener – but England lifted the crown by virtue of a superior points difference.
