When are this week’s Guinness Six Nations team announcements?

RUCK takes a look at when all six teams will name their starting line-ups.

France v Wales – Friday, February 1 (kick-off 8pm GMT)

As they prepare to kick off the 2019 Guinness Six Nations on home soil in Paris, France are set to be the first to show their hand this week.

Head coach Jacques Brunel, whose 31-man squad have been honing their skills in a training camp in the French Rugby Federation’s HQ in Marcoussis, will reveal his team for their meeting with Wales at 9am on Wednesday, January 30.

And at 11am, it will be the turn of Wales head coach Warren Gatland to reveal his matchday 23 as he plots to begin this year’s Championship with a win – just like in 2018, when Wales opened up with a 34-7 victory over Scotland in Cardiff.
