It’s back again and the latest edition of Rugby World magazine has our all-inclusive Six Nations preview for the 2024 championship. Out in shops now but already with subscribers, it also includes our FREE wallchart for both the men’s and women’s tournaments.

We have comprehensive team guides on every single nation with their one to watch, coaching staff, key player, Six Nations high and low as well as the all-important form guide. France are the bookies’ favourites to regain the title they won in 2022 but Ireland are the defending Grand Slam champions with the two sides set to battle it out in the very first game.
