The organisers of the Six Nations have released the fixtures for the Men’s 2020 and 2021 championships, with England opening their campaign next year in Paris while Wales welcome Italy.
Details of the next two tournaments follow an epic finish in Cardiff and London at the weekend, as Wales were crowned 2019 Six Nations Grand Slam champions and Scotland fought back to retain the Calcutta Cup in a 38-38 classic with England.
In 2020, England follow their round 1 match at the Stade de France with fixtures against Scotland (away), Ireland (home), Wales (home) and Italy (away).
Wayne Pivac’s first campaign after succeeding Warren Gatland as head coach will see Wales travel to play Ireland in round 2, followed by France (home), England (away) and Scotland (home).
The next two Six Nations championships will not see any fixture played on Friday night.
