It’s a formidable challenge for Steve Borthwick’s team, given Ireland’s impressive record of just two defeats in their last 41 home games.

Following the Ireland fixture, Andy Farrell’s side will travel to Scotland and Wales, before hosting France in Dublin. They will conclude their campaign with a match against Italy in Rome.

The tournament commences on Friday, 31 January, with France hosting Wales in Paris, with kick-off at 9:15 pm local time. England will play the following day, as Scotland takes on Italy at Murrayfield, as announced by tournament organisers.

As per this year, the 2025 Championship will see BBC and ITV sharing coverage in the UK, with S4C offering Welsh language options. France Television will be the home of the Championship for French fans, RTE and Virgin Media will once again cover the games in Ireland. In Italy, Sky Italia will continue their coverage of the Championship in 2025. The host broadcast coverage will also be complemented by widespread international broadcast coverage and a World Feed service.
