Preview – The Six Nations 2018: Week Three

Calcutta Cup

After a weeklong break the rugby union tournament returns.

First up is the continental clash between France and Italy, then over the weekend Ireland face the Welsh, but the biggest match of the lot is the Calcutta Cup game between Scotland and England at Murrayfield. Given that the Scots haven’t won it since 2008 and that last year’s match ended with them being thrashed by the English 61-21, the boys in blue will be looking to achieve a shock victory.

France v Italy is on BBC One at 19.30 (kick-off 20.00)

Ireland v Wales is on ITV at 13.30 (kick-off 14.15)

Scotland v England is on BBC One at 16.00 (kick-off 16.45)
