Six Nations 2019 fixtures: Dates, full schedule, how to buy tickets and everything else you need

Ireland‘s win in the 2018 Six Nations and a successful set of Summer and Autumn fixtures have moved Joe Schmidt's side firmly into the discussion around the likely winners of the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

The 2019 tournament for the Northern Hemisphere sides mark a real test of competitive fixtures before the World Cup and a chance to build momentum – Ireland will be defending their Grand Slam and Triple Crown.

While a series of Summer fixtures will also be played between the sides in August and September before the Japan tournament, a Six Nations trophy a few months before would be more of a marker to lay down to competitors.

All the matches will be broadcast on ITV or the BBC in England, while every Wales game will be broadcast on S4C. For Ireland matches switch to TV3, for France FR2 and for Italy games, go to DMAX. Tickets can be bought online here and here.
