Six Nations 2023: Full fixtures, results, schedule and TV channel guide

The 2023 men’s Six Nations is heading for a thrilling conclusion, with the second and final rest week following the completed third round of fixtures and setting up all six countries for a fortnight-long sprint to the line.

Ireland remain on course for a grand slam as they defeated the Welsh in Cardiff on the opening day before downing France in an enthralling Round 2 fixture between the best two sides in the world and made it three from three with a battling victory over plucky Italy in Rome.

The Azzurri have largely impressed despite three defeats, with a narrow opening-day loss to reigning grand slam champions France and the battling performance against Ireland raising real hope of repeating last year’s feat and beating Wales in Round 4. Under Warren Gatland, and having only narrowly averted a player strike cancelling their Round 3 game against England, Wales are in complete disarray and the wooden spoon will be on the line when they face Kieran Crowley’s men.

Scotland followed up a dramatic Calcutta Cup win against England in the opening round with a record defeat of Wales and were then unfortunate to see their grand slam hopes ended in Paris during a thrilling Test match, as France bounced back from a Round 2 loss to Ireland to keep their championship hopes alive. Meanwhile, England are building under new coach Steve Borthwick and Calcutta Cup disappointment to start their Six Nations gave way to a much more impressive 31-14 triumph over Italy and a gruelling 20-10 win in Cardiff against a Welsh side in crisis.
