Preview – Rugby Union: Six Nations, Week Four

Six Nations

Following a break the Six Nations returns, with Wales the last nation still in contention to achieve the Grand Slam.

In order to do that, first they need to defeat Scotland at Murrayfield. If Wales win it will practically guarantee them the Championship overall, but it won’t be impossible for other teams to overtake them. Scotland however do have recent history on their side, having beaten Wales that last time they hosted them.

After this England take on Italy. The Italians have yet to get any points on the round, while England will need to win to keep the pressure on the Welsh, while also hoping the Scots will win. Tomorrow, Ireland host France in what is now a mid-table clash.

Scotland v Wales is on BBC One at 14.00 (kick-off 14.15).

England v Italy is on ITV at 16.00 (kick-off 16.45).

Ireland v France is on ITV tomorrow at 14.15 (kick-off 15.00).
