CONFIRMED: Six Nations kick-off times
SPOTLIGHT: Six Nations Rugby has announced the kick-off times for the 2022 season.
The defending champions Wales face a tricky trip to Dublin in Round 1 to play an Ireland side they narrowly beat on the opening weekend of their successful 2021 Championship campaign.
The game will start at 14.15 GMT on Saturday 5 February and is swiftly followed by the eagerly-awaited Calcutta Cup encounter between Scotland and England.
Scotland regained the famous trophy in the 2021 Championship by winning at Twickenham for the first time since 1983.
They will hope to retain it in Round 1 of the 2022 Championship, and the match begins at 16.45 GMT at BT Murrayfield.
On Sunday, February 6, Round 1 finishes at the Stade de France, where France and Italy meet at 16.00 local time (15.00 GMT).
Later in the Championship, there is much excitement ahead of the return of Friday rugby and organisers have confirmed it will be an 20.00 kick-off on March 11 as Wales host France in Round 4.
Super Saturday is also a date to mark on the calendar, with three matches back-to-back on March 19.
The day starts in Cardiff, where Wales host Italy at 14.15, and then heads to Dublin where Ireland finish off their campaign with a home clash with Scotland at 16.45.
And then rounding it all off, France and England meet in Le Crunch at 21.00 local time (20.00 GMT) at the Stade de France.
