How to watch 2020 Six Nations rugby live and free

Europe's best rugby union teams will return to action as the long delayed 2020 Six Nations tournament re-starts. You can watch live.

Picture not described

The 2020 Six Nations was midway through the fourth of its standard five rounds when the coronavirus pandemic brought it to a shuddering halt. Scotland’s victory over France on 9 March was the final match held – just one week before the competition’s scheduled finale.

In a very even tournament, every side had suffered at least one defeat by the shutdown, with England and France leading the way on the Six Nations ladder with three wins from four attempts.

Now top-shelf rugby union is back and we are set for a sprint finish. Eddie Jones’ English squad is in the box seat, with only a clash against winless Italy remaining on their schedule. But the French, Scottish and Irish can all take out the title if results fall their way.

What is the Six Nations?

What was once known as the Five Nations tournament became the Six Nations when Italy joined the ranks in 2000. The six countries that now make up the competition are England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales, France and Italy.

The tournament was first held in 1883 and originally involved just England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. There have been a number of shared titles, so overall title-holders is a little subjective. The Welsh have 39 total wins, made up of 27 outright and 12 shared. England have the most outright wins with 28, but have 38 overall including shared tournament wins.

Six Nations schedule

Who will win the Six Nations?

Italy are far and away the also-rans of this tournament, while Scotland aren’t that far ahead of them. While France are competitive, since 2011 only England, Wales and Ireland have won the tournament. Wales might be the defending champions, but we find it hard to go past an England side bouncing back hard from that World Cup defeat and taking all before them in the 2020 Six Nations Championship.
