The 2019 Six Nations Championship will be the 125th edition of the annual event, which features the top 6 Rugby Union sides from Europe: England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales. It will kick off on the first day of February and conclude on March 16, with five rounds taking place over the course of seven weeks to determine the winner. With every game of the event set to be aired on beIN Sports and Kayo, you won’t have to miss a minute.
2019 Six Nations Championship Preview
Ireland were the dominant side in last year’s Six Nations, winning all five of their games and ending the tournament with a point differential of +78, and it’s no surprise that they will head in as comfortable favourites to win once again. England, however, is expected to pose a strong challenge to the reigning champs, while Wales are always in the mix as well.
After that, the challengers begin to drop off – something which has been a theme in an eight-year period which has seen Ireland, England and Wales share the spoils amongst each other. Scotland and France are less likely to be in the mix, while Italy, who hasn’t won a game at the tournament in three years, is widely touted to finish bottom for the fourth year running. It’s the top end of the table which will draw much of the interest though, and Australian fans who enjoy watching championship rugby action have a variety of options with which to catch it all.

Each and every Foxtel channel pack is also available via the Foxtel Go App, which allows subscribers to stream all Foxtel content direct to an eligible mobile device.

Live Rugby on Free to Air TV
Due to broadcasting agreements there is no Six Nations free to air broadcaster currently in Australia. It is, however, shown on BBC, so if you’re fortunate enough to be living in, or visiting England, you can catch it all there. If you’re looking for free-to-air rugby action in Australia though, there’s plenty of other options. Several key Wallabies matches including the Bledisloe Cup will be available throughout the year, as will the NRL Premiership season (including the Grand Final), the hugely popular State of Origin, and domestic competitions such as the New South Wales and Queensland Cups.
