The Six Nations is back for its 2023 edition, keeping rugby fans on the edge of their seats over the next five weekends from today (February 4) until March 18. Unless you’re lucky enough to be watching inside one of the six host stadiums, the next best thing is the atmosphere at a packed-out pub or sports bar.

The six sides aiming for grand slam glory by the end of March remain the same. England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Italy and France will play matches over the coming weeks.
