All Six Nations fixtures ahead of the 2020 championship

Wales kicked off the defence of their Six Nations crown in stunning fashion as this year’s championship got underway on Saturday.

The opening game of the 2020 Guinness Six Nations tournament saw the reigning champions thrash Italy 42-0.

Wales, now coached by Wayne Pivac, also finish their campaign in Cardiff’s Principality Stadium when Scotland visit on March 22.

England’s first match started in defeat away in France before a visit to Murrayfield a week later where they’ll seek to reclaim the Calcutta Cup from Scotland.

This year marks the first time since 2013 where no matches will take place on Friday nights, with all games taking place on Saturday or Sunday.
