A hit and miss 2020 season will want to be rectified by Andy Farrell and his men, as they attempt to close the gap to France and England.

Ireland Six Nations Fixtures 2021

The 2021 Six Nations fixtures have been unveiled, giving rugby supporters the chance to get super excited about the tournament.

Last season was something of a transitional period for Ireland, with captain Rory Best retiring and Andy Farrell replacing Joe Schmidt as head coach. Beating Scotland and Wales in the Autumn Nations Cup will provide them with confidence going into the 2021 Six Nations, but it remains to be seen if they can catch up to France and England.
