Six Nations Rugby First Weekend Special (BBC One Sunday 5 February 2023)



Six Nations Rugby

Today Sunday 5 February 2023, there is a new episode of Six Nations Rugby.

First Weekend Special Ugo Monye introduces the best moments from the first weekend of the Six Nations, including the classic matchup between England and Scotland in the Calcutta Cup. John Barclay and Sam Warburton, two former Scotland captains, are in the studio.

England’s first encounter under new coach Steve Borthwick will be against Scotland, a team they’ve lost two of three games to in recent history. Warren Gatland, who led Wales to three Grand Slam victories between 2007 and 2019, was just reappointed as head coach, thus the nation is also looking for a successful start.

Ireland, who last year climbed to the top of the world rankings by defeating New Zealand, South Africa, and Australia, will provide a formidable challenge for him and his team. Meanwhile, in Rome, the French, who won the Grand Slam last year, face the Italians.
