In the last two years, many sports events have been under a question mark, and no one could tell for sure whether or not they will take place. But, it seems that things are slowly getting back on track.
Take a look at some of the rugby events that have been scheduled that you can hopefully watch this year. Also, we decided to list them with a couple of other pieces of information that will help you choose the best ones for you.
Six Nations Championship
One of the first events that we are going to see and talk about is The Six Nations Championship. This rugby event is also called the Guinness Six Nations because of its main sponsor Guinness. This tournament is an international event in which 6 different teams – France, England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, and Italy compete with each other for the overall title of the Six Nations Championship. The former champions that are going to defend their last year’s title are Wales and we will see if they are going to make it a back-to-back title this year.
England vs Scotland
The first match for this event will happen on the 5th of February this year in which Scotland will face England. It is going to be held at the Murrayfield Stadium which is also known as the BT Murrayfield Stadium located in Edinburgh. The total number of seats is 67,144 which makes it the number 1 largest arena in all of Scotland.
Scotland vs Wales
The second match for this event is going to be held on the 12th of February and in this match, the former champions Whales are going to play against Scotland.
England vs Italy
Scheduled on the very next day is the match between Italy and England. The funny thing about this matchup is that England hasn’t lost a single match against Italy in the history of this Championship. So maybe we are in for a surprise this year. Maybe Italy will win against England and finally end their losing streak.
France vs Scotland
The next match is going to happen on the 26th of February and this will be a fiery encounter in which France will try to defeat Scotland after they lost to them the previous year.
France vs Wales
Continuing in the next month, on the 11th of March France will face Wales on their home turf. This is certainly going to be an interesting one, with the home match atmosphere you can’t go wrong.
England vs France
Only a few days after the previous match on 19th of March the highly anticipated event in the Six Nations Champions is France vs England. This match can easily be the title-deciding match for this year, so keep that in mind if you’re planning to watch some of them.
