The 2021 Six Nations Championship will be the 127th edition of the event, featuring the top six sides from the Northern Hemisphere in England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales. With Lions places up for grabs, there will be a bit more of an edge to this year’s competition, which will make for some compelling Rugby.
2021 Six Nations Championship Preview
England took the Six Nations title in 2020 after a bizarre campaign that ended only last October in front of no fans. This year there are more reasons to be cheerful as fans are allowed back and the tournament can take place again over its usual six-week window from February to March.
All six sides are fresh of the back of the one-off Autumn Nations Cup, so there has been no shortage of match practice. England also won that one, albeit against a somewhat depleted French side. France are quickly becoming a dominant force in Europe again, seeing some of their U20 stars coming into the first thanks to back-to-back youth World Cup wins.
Ireland and Wales are also usually front runners for this tournament too, but changes to the coaching staff coupled with the retirement of key players will leave them playing catch-up this term.
