Scotland have three home fixtures and Gregor Townsend will be looking to improve on their historical best finish of third this time around with Jamie Ritchie captaining the side.

Elsewhere, Italy enter the championship for the first time in seven years having won a game the year before after that last-gasp victory over Wales in Cardiff. Kieran Crowley’s men will hope to kick on having snapped their 36-game losing streak before bagging a first-ever win over Australia during the Autumn Nations Series.

The 2023 Six Nations fixtures begin on Saturday 4 February and run until Super Saturday on 18 March. Every side plays five games with two rest weeks, with no Six Nations fixtures over the weekends of 18-19 February and 4-5 March.
