February 20, 20203 min read
The first rest week of the 2020 Guinness Six Nations is out the way, and now it's time to get back to international rugby.
In week 2, Ireland maintained their 100% start to the campaign with victory over Wales, England won the Calcutta Cup against Scotland at a very wet and windy BT Murrayfield, while France also won their second game thanks to a win over Italy.
Round 3 will see Scotland head to Rome looking for a first victory of 2020, France will hope to keep their campaign on track against Wales in Cardiff, before Ireland look for a second Triple Crown in three years when they visit Twickenham to take on England.
Once again, we have put together all the kick off times, squad announcements, team lineups and latest Six Nations news in one place, making it as easy as possible for you to enjoy the tournament!
Saturday 22nd February
Italy v Scotland, 2.15pm, Stadio Olimpico, Rome
2 defeats so far in this season's tournament means it is now 24 consecutive Six Nations losses for Italy.
Franco Smith's side will definitely fancy their chances of ending that run against Scotland this weekend, and he's named an unchanged side. That means there is no space for legendary number 8 Sergio Parisse, who will retire from international rugby after the tournamant.
Gregor Townsend will be desperate to get Scotland's Six Nations back on track, with this game looking like the Wooden Spoon decider.
He has made 3 changes from the team that lost to England, with Stuart McInally starting ahead of Fraser Brown, Ben Toolis replacing the injured Jonny Gray, and Chris Harris coming in for Huw Jones, who drops out of the squad entirely.
