The 2023 Guinness Six Nations takes place between February 4 and March 18 and will be of huge importance ahead of the Rugby World Cup in the autumn.

Last time out, France achieved their first championship since 2010 and completed the Grand Slam. Ireland were second - losing only to the champions - while England, Scotland and Wales faltered. Italy footed the table but managed a memorable win over Wales.

The opening match of this year's championship saw Ireland beat Wales in Cardiff on Saturday, February 4. On the same day, Scotland beat England at Twickenham in the Calcutta Cup. The first weekend was completed with France just hanging on to beat Italy in Rome on Sunday, February 5.

The second weekend began with the top two from last year's championship as Ireland beat France in Dublin on Saturday, February 11, after a superb performance. Scotland then backed up their Round 1 win with a convincing victory at home to Wales on the same day. On Sunday, England - though not hugely impressive - proved too strong for Italy.

Week three sees Italy host Ireland (2.15pm) before Wales host England (4.45pm) for a fixture that always produces moments to savour on Saturday February 25. The third week will conclude with France playing Scotland on Sunday February 26 (3pm).

On week four, Wales will hope not to lose two years running against Italy on Saturday March 11 (2.15pm) as England play France for Le Crunch (4.45pm). Sunday March 12 sees Scotland welcome Ireland for a Celtic clash (3pm).

The Six Nations championships come to an end on Super Saturday on March 18. Scotland host Italy (12.30pm), Wales visit France (2.45pm) and Ireland welcome England (5pm).
