Watch the 2023 Six Nations LIVE Streaming Coverage
France will be holding off fierce competition from England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland and Italy this year to defend the Six Nations Championship trophy. France finished off the perfect Grand Slam tournament without losing a match in 2022. The climax of the tournament ending with a 25-13 victory over England in Paris in front of a sell out crowd.
It’s an explosive start to the Six Nations with Wales v Ireland and then the famous fixture between England and Scotland at Twickenham. The last time Ireland and Wales met in 2022 it was comfortable 29-7 victory for the Irish side. Wales will be looking for retribution for that result and with what will surely be a packed Principality Stadium, this could be an electric start to the Six Nations tournament. This game will be available on BBC and S4C for UK based viewers with a 2:15pm kick off.
Scotland will travel down to London trying to replicate their famous victory at Twickenham in the 2021 Six Nations. England will be looking to bounce back under their new head coach Steve Borthwick. This game will be the perfect way to spend a Saturday evening with a 16:45 kick off. There’s been some real classic games between both of these sides in the last few years and this one has the potential to be box office.
You have to go all the way back to the 3rd of February, 2013 for the last and only time Italy have recorded a famous 23-18 victory at home against their continental neighbours France. It will be a tough task to challenge the previous Grand Slam winners in Rome. But there’s always a chance the Italians can catch the French cold. This game is live on ITV in Sunday, 5th of February with a 3pm kick off.
