Super Saturday. The best day on the annual rugby calendar. This year's final weekend of the Championship sees Ireland already having been crowned champions thanks to their win over Scotland, coupled with England's defeat at the hands of France. But outside of that, it's all to play for between England, Wales, France and Scotland in the race for runner up. 

First game of the weekend is in Rome, with Scotland the visitors. For the home side, Conor O'Shea has handed a debut to Gloucester's Jake Polledri as Italy chase a first win in the tournament since 2015.  

In the visiting side, Gregor Townsend has made five changes, with Fraser Brown, WP New, Tim Swinson, Nick Grigg and Tommy Seymour all starting the game for Scotland.  

Twickenham will host the second game of the weekend, in what many thought would be the title decider. As it is, England are trying to avoid a third consecutive defeat. Eddie Jones has made sweeping changes, skipper Dylan Hartley returning after recovering from injury, while Elliot Daly, Kyle Sinckler, Richard Wigglesworth, George Kruis all start.

2018 Six Nations Champions Ireland are chasing only a third ever Grand Slam, and Joe Schmidt has changed just one player from the victory over Scotland - Iain Henderson replaces Devin Toner. 

After Warren Gatland changed 10 players for last week's match with Italy, it's back to normal for their final game with France, as Wales aim to finish their campaign on a high.

In the absence of the injured Guilhem Guirado, Mathieu Bastareaud will captain France in Cardiff.
