Rugby | Six Nations

England, Ireland set for St Patrick's clash



Ireland will get another opportunity to dent double defending champions England's celebrations at next year's Six Nations, with the two sides set to face each other at Twickenham on the final day of the tournament on March 17.

Ireland beat England 13-9 on the final day of this year's tournament to ruin their rivals' hopes of a second successive grand slam and a world record 19th victory in a row, and will be hoping for a similar result on St Patrick's Day next year.

The Six Nations starts on February 3 with Wales and Scotland facing off in Cardiff, and Ireland travelling to Paris to play France. England travel to Italy a day later.

England and Wales renew hostilities in the highlight of round two at Twickenham on February 10, while France take on Italy in round three the Friday after, in a match to be played at a yet-to-be announced venue outside Paris for the first time.

"We are delighted to confirm the fixture dates for the 2018 Championship, coming shortly after a record-breaking 2017 edition," Six Nations Rugby chairman Pat Whelan said in a statement.

"We enjoyed record figures across TV and digital and look forward to continuing that trend over the next two seasons."

The 2018 edition of the Six Nations will begin on February 1 and runs until March 16.
