How to watch the Six Nations

The Six Nations, as usual, will be available to the UK and Ireland on the BBC. Meanwhile, in the Women’s Six Nations, the partnership with TikTok will continue for another year as the platform looks to build on record-breaking viewership numbers from last year’s Championship.

Rugby fans will be spoilt for choice as the top teams battle it out for the Six Nations crown, and with restrictions lifted the atmosphere at each match will be guaranteed to be special. Six Nations without the fans takes away from the spectacle and we are overjoyed that fans will be packing stadiums across the country. ExpressVPN recently ran a survey on Google Trends examining the popularity of rugby across the UK, and it’s facing stiff competition from golf as being the second most popular sport in the UK. Nail-biting finishes, hard-hitting tackles, and free-flowing rugby at sold-out stadiums will go a great way in boosting the popularity of rugby for fans of all ages.
