Preview – The Six Nations 2018: Week One

Six Nations

Yet another sporting event the BBC has lost exclusive rights to. Notice how the England match is being shown on ITV.

The rest of the home nations however get to stay on the BBC this week. The first match sees Wales take on Scotland, the latter of whom have been on recent good form, having a few months comfortably beating Australia. Later Ireland, who seem to be second-favourites to win after the English, travel to France.

Tomorrow England travel to Italy for what should be an easy match, but given recent English injuries you can never be certain what will happen.

Wales v Scotland is on BBC One at 13.45 (kick-off 14.15)

France v Ireland is on BBC One at 16.15 (kick-off 16.45)

Italy v England is on ITV tomorrow at 14.15 (kick-off 15.00)
