All the results from the 2024 Guinness Men's Six Nations, plus the 2025 fixtures

Congratulations to Ireland, who retained their title following the final round of Men’s Six Nations fixtures. Andy Farrell’s men thwarted Scotland’s hopes of a Triple Crown with a 17-13 win in Dublin, tries by front-rows Dan Sheehan and Andrew Porter helping them home.

France flattered to deceive during the championship but still finished runners-up. That came courtesy of a late Thomas Ramos penalty in a 33-31 win against England, who finished third.
