It feels too soon due to last year’s tournament being delayed and finished in October but The Six Nations is back for another year to provide some much-needed entertainment during lockdown.
England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France and Italy will all battle it out once again and here’s where you can watch every game of the 2021 tournament.
So far, it’s France and Wales dominating but both England and Scotland are in with a shout. Sadly, the France vs Scotland match has been postponed due to a new covid case in the French camp.
