SCOTLAND will kick-off their 2024 Six Nations campaign with a trip to Cardiff to take on Wales in the early evening of Saturday 3rd February (4.45pm kick-off) . That will be the day after the tournament starts with a bang when France and Ireland – the top two teams in the world at the moment, who played out an epic encounter in Dublin just over a fortnight ago – lock horns again in a Friday night clash in Paris.

Round two will see France visit Murrayfield on Saturday 10th February (2.15pm kick-off), followed by the Calcutta Cup game against England at Murrayfield on Saturday 24th February (4.45pm).

Scotland’s final two games are on the road, against Italy in Rome on Saturday 9th March (2.15pm) and Ireland in Dublin on Saturday 16th March (4.45pm), meaning there will be no Sunday matches for the Scots this year.
