Six Nations Rugby

The Six Nations, Europe’s equivalent of the Tri-Nations, kicks off this weekend with France  hosting Italy  in the opening fixture. Les Bleus are the tournament favourites and will want to get their campaign off to a winning start in front of their own fans, after suffering a shock 22-21 defeat to the Azzurri in Rome last year.

Defending champions England  face a tough trip to Murrayfield where they will face Scotland  on the opening day, while Ireland  and Wales  do battle in Dublin the following day.
