Six Nations 2021 – fixtures, dates, TV schedule and match kick-off times

Check out all the latest details for the Six Nations 2021, including the full schedule of fixtures on TV and live stream.

Six Nations 2021

The third round of Six Nations fixtures are live on TV this weekend, though it’s a depleted slate of games due to a COVID-19 outbreak among one of the squads.


France have recorded 14 positive tests, meaning their clash with Scotland has been postponed without a new date to be announced.

England will hope to take full advantage of tournament favourites France not being in action as they travel to face Wales, while Ireland are pitted against Italy.

Some of the best rugby players in the world will line up for England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France and Italy throughout the 2021 tournament in the battle for supremacy.

Can title-holders England claw their way back into the competition, or could France and Scotland be set for a stunning triumph? 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.

Who won the last 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.
