Six Nations table: Latest standings, results and fixture start times

I

t’s Six Nations time once again as the 2021 edition of the northern hemisphere’s premier international rugby union competition gets underway this weekend.

It’s been a shorter break than usual, with the coronavirus pandemic forcing the closing stages of last year’s tournament to be delayed by seven months.

The 2021 instalment began at the Stadio Olimpico, where Italy – without a win in this competition since 2015 – were thrashed 50-10 by a France team looking to bounce back after near-misses in both the Six Nations and inaugural Autumn Nations Cup last year.

We then had the small matter of a Calcutta Cup clash at Twickenham on the 150th anniversary of the first meeting between old rivals as Scotland stunned England with a famous 11-6 win.

The round one action concludes in Cardiff on Sunday, with Wales back at the Principality Stadium as they look to improve on a woeful 2020 under Wayne Pivac against Andy Farrell’s Ireland.

Here are the latest Six Nations standings plus the 2021 fixture list in full…
