Leaked ITV pundit line-up for the 2023 Six Nations is controversial

Mark Pougatch and Jill Douglas are splitting the hosting duties as ITV has two of the three games each weekend (starting with England vs Scotland and Italy vs France, on the opening weekend.).

A leak suggests pundits on the ITV roster will include former England boss Eddie Jones.

The 62-year-old, who was sacked as England head coach by the Rugby Football Union at the end of last year, is understood to be weighing up an offer to be one of their analysts for the championship.

He will be joined by Brian O’Driscoll, Rory Best, Gareth Thomas, Benjamin Kayser, Maggie Alphonsi, James Hook, Sir Clive Woodward, Jonny Wilkinson and Lawrence Dallaglio

Miles Harrison and Nick Mullins are the ITV commentators, supported by Ben Kay, David Flatman, Shane Williams, Gordan D’Arcy, Scott Hastings and Danielle ‘Nollie’ Waterman.

England’s Six Nations fixtures confirmed with Steve Borthwick handed nightmare start

The 2023 Six Nations fixtures have been announced with England looking to reclaim the Calcutta Cup in round one.

Eddie Jones will be under series pressure following their poor Autumn Nations Series while Wayne Pivac, if he is still in charge of Wales, takes on Ireland at home first game.

Commenting on the announcement, Six Nations Rugby CEO, Ben Morel said: “The 2022 Championship ended in one of the most exciting Super Saturdays in history with an incredible performance by Italy, a Triple Crown win for Ireland and a long-awaited Grand Slam for France.

“Once again, fans had to wait until the final game was played to know who this year’s Champions would be, and the rugby action did not disappoint. The combination of incredible broadcast coverage of the Championship, and the eagerly anticipated return of fans at games, meant that this year’s Guinness Six Nations felt truly special.”
