A feast of rugby
Passion, pride and patriotism… Get set for a feast of rugby and share in the excitement of the Six Nations 2016.
After the disappointment of their World Cup campaign, England will be desperate to claim a first Six Nations title since 2011, but defending champions Ireland will be no pushovers, looking for their third championship win in succession.
They kick off their title defence at home to Wales, but only after France face Italy in Paris and Scotland and England contest the Calcutta Cup at Murrayfield.
There’ll be no love lost when England travel to Italy on Valentine’s Day, and we can expect a fierce battle when Wales make the trip to Twickenham on Saturday 12th March.
It could still all be up for grabs on the final day, when Wales host Italy, Scotland travel to Ireland and England face France in Paris.
Whether you’re heading to the local pub for a pint or staying in to watch it on the box, it’s time to put the dates in the diary and keep those afternoons and evenings free of distraction.
