The Six Nations is back! There are two new coaches, three new captains and a host of new players – but the old rivalries that make the tournament so special remain. And Rugby World’s March issue has you covered for exclusive interviews, expert analysis and supercharged statistics.

Two of those new captains – Rory Best and Guilhem Guirado – talk to RW while we also have interviews with Owen Farrell, Scott Baldwin, Matt Scott and George Biagi.

Stuart Barnes makes his predictions for the tournament while Stephen Jones gives his verdict on the Women’s Six Nations. Plus, we run the rule over each country’s men’s, women’s and U20 team and there’s and eight-page Super Rugby preview.
