Six teams carrying the pride of their nations are set to battle it out to be crowned the rugby champions of the Northern hemisphere – what’s not to like?
Read on to see our thoughts on each team’s chances this year in an unmissable Six Nations championship.
|Six Nations 2021 Winner|
England started their 2020 campaign with defeat in Paris but then won four on the bounce to lift the trophy, edging out the French on points difference.
Strong favourites to win the Six Nations once more, they’re definitely the team to beat.
A young French side performed impressively in the 2020 Six Nations and with more experience under their belts, they could push England all the way again in this year’s tournament.
France have to face England and Ireland on the road this year though so we think they’re likely to just come up short once more.
On paper, Ireland have the squad to lay it down to England and France but they’re struggling to put it all together on the pitch under Andy Farrell.
They face England at home on the final weekend of matches – could we be in for a title decider in Dublin?
It’s looking like the wooden spoon once more for Italy who have finished bottom of the pile 15 times in the 20 years since they joined the European rugby top table.
They’ve not won a Six Nations match since 2015 and there’s every chance it’ll be another tough slog in 2021.
Scotland won three in a row in the Six Nations last year for the first time since 1996 and Gregor Townsend will be hoping his side can continue that momentum into 2021.
They couldn’t have a tougher start though, facing England at Twickenham on the opening weekend.
Wales are a team struggling for form and look a long way from the side that reached the World Cup semi-finals in 2019.
2020 saw them finishing 4th in the Six Nations, their worst performance since 2007, and if results don’t improve, it could be curtains for coach Wayne Pivac.
2021 sees the Six Nations being played over five weekends through February and March, and the action kicks-off on Saturday, February 6 with Italy facing France.
The Six Nations offers a ton of betting opportunities – from betting on individual matches to the tournament winner, there’s plenty to have a punt on.

The tournament began as the Five Nations in 1947 when France joined the ‘Home Nations Championship’ which saw England, Ireland, Wales, and Scotland battle it out.
It then became the Six Nations in 2000 when Italy joined the tournament.
The Six Nations is the top international rugby union tournament in the Northern hemisphere and sees the teams battling it out to win the tournament but also the coveted Triple Crown and Grand Slam.
The Triple Crown can only be won by either England, Ireland, Scotland or Wales, when they win all three of their matches against the other sides.
The Grand Slam is when one team beats every other team during the Six Nations tournament – easier said than done.
England currently hold the record for the most outright wins with 29, including 13 Grand Slams.
England were crowned Six Nations champions once more, winning the tournament on points difference over France.
On the final weekend, there was still all to play for and England easily saw off Italy in Rome meaning Ireland needed a bonus-point win over France in Paris to pip England to the title.
However, Andy Farrell’s side came up short against France, losing 35-27 to hand the trophy to England and allowing France to nab 2nd spot in the table.
