Where to watch Round 3 of the Guinness Six Nations

Anthony Watson's two tries earned him a place in the Fantasy Rugby Team of the Week

The 2021 Guinness Six Nations resumes this weekend after a week away, and not a second too soon, with two swashbuckling fixtures for you to enjoy this Saturday.

Once again, matches will be shown on ITV and BBC in the UK and Northern Ireland as Round 3 gets into full swing, while Virgin Media One will have you covered if you’re watching in the Republic of Ireland.

The action gets underway as Andy Farrell takes his Ireland side to Rome to face Italy, with both sides eager to get their first victory of this year’s Championship.

Viewers in the UK can tune into all the build-up from Stadio Olimpico from 1.30pm on ITV 1 HD, while Irish viewers will be able to watch on Virgin Media One HD from 1pm ahead of the 2.15pm kick-off.

And no sooner has the fallout from Rome finished, than we will all be getting geared up for the second match of Saturday’s double-header, as England and Wales go toe to toe at Principality Stadium.

The hosts are still unbeaten heading into Round 3 having beaten Ireland and Scotland in their opening two fixtures, and have their eyes set on the Triple Crown with a victory.

Eddie Jones’ side have other ideas and will be looking to make it back-to-back victories in Cardiff, and you can see who take home the points live on BBC One HD in the UK, with coverage starting at 4pm ahead of a 4.45pm kick-off.

For those of you wanting to watch the coverage in Welsh, S4C has you covered from 4pm, while Virgin Media One HD will be getting the show on the road in Ireland from 4.30pm.
