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.

Like so many sports across the globe, the 2020 Six Nations was hugely interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. Shut down in March last year on the eve of the finals, it finally returned in October with England ultimately claiming the title.

Now top-shelf rugby is back after a short break with a new five-round competition concluding on 20 March. Who will take out this year’s crown?

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 the battlers in this competition, suffering through another winless campaign in 2020. Outside of the Italians, the remaining nations are competitive and can pull a result out on their day. We feel it is a very tight race to call this year, with England keen to defend their title. But we’re leaning towards France breaking a long drought and grabbing their first title since way back in 2010.
