Six Nations 2024: Fixtures, squads, how to get tickets and more (1)

England coach Steve Borthwick has named his 36-man squad for the Six Nations, with Andy Farrell naming his 34-man squad as Ireland seek to defend their Six Nations title.

It means the squads for all six nations have been announced, before the tournament starts in February.

When is the 2024 Six Nations?

The 2024 Six Nations gets under way on Feb 2, 2024 at 8pm (UK time) as France host champions Ireland.

The last time either team stepped on to the field at the Stade de France was for the World Cup quarter-finals in October, when they were knocked out of the tournament on successive nights.

England kick-off their tournament against Italy at 2.15pm (UK time) on Feb 3, 2024. Borthwick’s side will be hoping to improve on their previous showing at the Six Nations after finishing fourth in the standings with 10 points, 17 points behind the winners, Ireland.

How to watch the 2024 Six Nations on TV

Fixtures this year will continue to be shown on both BBC and ITV in the UK. Live streams will be available for free on the BBC iPlayer and ITVX apps, and will be available to download on mobile or tablet devices.

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

Who is in the France squad?

Meafou, who only became eligible for Les Bleus after last year’s World Cup having qualified on residency, has made a name for himself since his 2019 arrival in Toulouse as one of Europe’s heaviest-hitting forwards.

In the absence of Antoine Dupont, who will miss the entire Six Nations in order to focus on a potential sevens appearance at the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris, La Rochelle skipper Grégory Alldritt will captain France.
