The second round of the 2024 Six Nations kicks off today with Scotland taking on France at Murrayfield before England take on Wales at Twickenham. On Sunday, Ireland welcome Italy to Dublin.

Ireland are brimming with “massive belief” after launching their Six Nations defense last week with a remarkable demolition of pre-tournament favorites France.

England got a scare at the Stadio Olimpico to start their post-World Cup rebuild with a win over Italy. George Ford says a new leadership group is emerging.

The final game of the opening weekend was almost one of the most impressive comebacks in recent memory as Scotland strolled past Wales to end their 22-year Cardiff hoodoo.

How to watch the 2024 Six Nations on TV

This year’s games will continue to be shown on both the BBC and ITV in the UK. Live streams are available for free on the BBC iPlayer and ITVX apps, and can be downloaded to mobile or tablet devices.

The long-term future of the Six Nations on free-to-air television is uncertain after the British Government rejected calls to add the tournament to the list of sporting events that must be shown for free.

The Six Nations Table

When does the 2024 Six Nations start and finish?

This year’s Six Nations kicked off on Friday night – 2 February 2024 – when France faced Ireland in Marseille.

The final will be on Saturday, March 16 – aka ‘Super Saturday’ – with all three games on the same day.

Six Nations round one summary

Les Bleus feeling the blues

A 38-17 home win against Ireland left France bottom of the men’s standings for the first time since they finished with the wooden spoon in 2013.

In the Six Nations era it was the first time they had conceded five goals in a home game and only conceded more points at home, losing 43-35 to Great Britain in 2001 – in fact only the sixth when they surrendered. 30 or more at home.

Their biggest loss at home has been by a margin of 21 points – they have lost just 14 of 61 such games and are only the fourth by double figures. England won 24-13 in 2008 and 31-21 in 2016 and Wales won 16-6 in 2013.

For Ireland, France had just their fourth win in the Six Nations and took all their points against Les Bleus, who had previously lost 43-31 in 2006.

The fight in Wales is short

Last place was assured for Les Bleus when both games on Saturday ended close, Wales and Italy losing bonus points.

It didn’t look that way as Warren Gatland’s side thrashed Scotland 27-0 soon after half-time, but James Botham’s try sparked a stunning comeback that came up short of a new Six Nations record.

Wales’ own victory over France in 2019, when they trailed 16-0 at half-time before winning 24-19 with two tries from George North, was the biggest deficit previously overcome to win a game in the Six Nations or those who went before them. Scotland went down 31-0 against England in 2019 and 25-6 against Great Britain in 2001.

If Wales manage to finish the job on Saturday it would equal the third biggest win in Test history.

The record is Korea’s 38-36 win over Chile in 2016, after trailing by 29 points at 36-7. Fiji came back from 28-0 and 31-3 down to beat Tonga 41-38 in 2010 and Chile had another great performance in 2007, leading Uruguay 27-0 at the break but losing 35-34.

Even as they trailed twice in the first half in Rome, England’s victory did not require the same drama. The visitors raced into a 10-point lead before Monty Ioane’s converted try four minutes from regulation 80 made the final score 27-24 and earned Italy a bonus point.

Who are the favorites to win the 2024 Six Nations?

  • Ireland to win: 1/5

  • England to win: 7/1

  • Scotland to win: 10/1

  • France to win: 20/1

  • Wales to win: 100/1

  • Italy to win: 500/1
