Clear your diary, stock the fridge and settle in for a weekend of Guinness Six Nations action – as Rugby’s Greatest Championship finally returns this weekend.

As ever, viewers in England are well catered for throughout the Championship and every match will be screened live in high definition.

The action begins on Saturday, with Ireland, unbeaten in eight Test matches, hosting the defending champions, Wales.

They meet in a re-match of their Round 1 meeting a year ago, when second-half tries from George North and Louis Rees-Zammit carried Wales to victory against the 14 men of Ireland, who lost Peter O’Mahony to a first-half red card.

ITV 1 HD has the match and will be on air from 1.30pm, with kick-off following at 2.15pm.

Another tasty treat follows at 4.45pm, as Scotland and England contest 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.
