How to watch 2023 Six Nations Rugby Championship

The 2023 Six Nations Rugby Championship is underway. The annual rugby competition features the national teams of England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, and Wales. This year marks the 129th edition of this competition, making it the world’s oldest rugby championship.

France enters the tournament as the defending champion and will look to become the first team to win back-to-back titles since England in 2016 and 2017. Since it became the Six Nations Championship in 2000, only Italy and Scotland have failed to win the tournament. Will that change in 2023?
