Guide to the RBS 6 Nations 2017 - Fixtures for Round 5

The RBS 6 Nations is 'Rugby's Greatest Championship' and the 2017 edition once again sees fans of six proud nations - England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales - enjoy a feast of rugby with fixtures taking place over five weekends in February and March.

The final round of the 2017 RBS 6 Nations will take place on Super Saturday with Scotland hosting Italy first up. Then the action moves to Paris, where France will take on Wales. Finally, England will look to clinch the Grand Slam in Dublin against Ireland.

Saturday 18 March: Scotland v Italy - 12.30pm, BT Murrayfield, Edinburgh

Scotland can secure three wins in a single RBS 6 Nations edition for only the second time with victory over Italy on Saturday but face an Azzurri team desperate for a win.

The Italians are still searching for their first point of the campaign but they were victorious on their last visit to Scotland back in 2015.

The Scots could also finish as high as second in the table if they win and results in Paris and Dublin go their way.

Saturday 18 March: France v Wales - 3.45pm, Stade de France, Paris

France have lost five straight against Wales, since the World Cup semi-final back in 2011, and they will be eager to put that right in Paris on Saturday.

Wales bounced back from disappointment in Scotland in Round Three with a morale-boosting win over Ireland last time out, and they could overtake the Irish in the world rankings with victory and an Ireland loss against England.

Saturday 18 March: Ireland v England - 5pm, Aviva Stadium, Dublin

England are bidding to become the first team to win back-to-back Grand Slams in the RBS 6 Nations era away in Dublin on Saturday.

Eddie Jones' side wrapped up the Championship title with victory over Scotland last week, but will be targeting a clean sweep at the Aviva Stadium, which would also break the world record for the most consecutive wins by a Tier One nation with a 19th victory.

Ireland saw their title hopes disappear against Wales last Friday but they will be keen to make up for it having won their only previous home game this Championship.
