The 2023 men’s Six Nations Championship is just around the corner, when Wales host Ireland and Scotland visit Twickenham for a Calcutta Cup showdown against England on the opening Saturday, 4 February.
France come into the tournament as the reigning champions looking to repeat their impressive grand slam 12 months ago.
England and Wales both arrive with new coaches - or old in Wales’ case as Warren Gatland returns to the helm. Steve Borthwick takes over England from Eddie Jones and his first task is to beat Gregor Townsend’s Scotland, who enjoyed a promising autumn series.
Andy Farrell is hoping to take Ireland one step further after they finished second in the table last year, while Italy head coach Kieran Crowley will look to build upon their solitary win in the last Six Nations campaign, having earned a memorable victory over Australia in the autumn.
