ITV televison panel Martin Bayfoeld Dimitri Yachvili and Lawrence Dallaglio

Expectations are high in Scotland as they begin their latest quest for Guinness Six Nations glory and fans can watch all the action from Rugby’s Greatest Championship live.

As ever, viewers in Scotland are well catered for throughout the Championship, with every match from all five rounds screened live in high definition.

The action begins on Saturday as Ireland, unbeaten in eight Test matches, host defending champions Wales, who won the reverse fixture in Cardiff in Round 1 last year.

In Scotland and the rest of the UK, ITV 1 HD has the match and will be on air from 1.30pm, with kick-off at 2.15pm.

But the main event for Scotland fans follows at 4.45pm, as Gregor Townsend’s men lock horns once again with England as they look to retain the Calcutta Cup at BT Murrayfield.

Scotland stunned England a year ago by winning at Twickenham for the first time in 38 years and will hope to secure bragging rights once more. BBC One HD is the place to watch in Scotland and the rest of the UK, with the team on air from 4pm.

Then on Sunday, France and Italy meet for the Giuseppe Garibaldi Trophy at the Stade de France to round out the weekend. ITV 1 HD is again the channel to find for supporters in Scotland – with the channel on air from 2.30pm ahead of a 3pm kick-off.

As per previous years, every match of the 2022 Guinness Six Nations will be broadcast live in the UK on BBC Radio 5 Live or 5 Live Sports Extra, with all commentaries also available on BBC Sounds and across BBC radio.
