2025 Six Nations fixture confirmed with England handed nightmare start

England will kick off their 2025 Guinness Six Nations campaign with an away match at the Aviva Stadium against Ireland. It’s a formidable challenge for Steve Borthwick’s team, given Ireland’s impressive record of just two defeats in their last 41 home games.

Following the Ireland fixture, Andy Farrell’s side will travel to Scotland and Wales, before hosting France in Dublin. They will conclude their campaign with a match against Italy in Rome.

The tournament commences on Friday, 31 January, with France hosting Wales in Paris, with kick-off at 9:15 pm local time. England will play the following day, as Scotland takes on Italy at Murrayfield, as announced by tournament organizers.
