Fixtures Announced For 2011 RBS 6 Nations

Ireland will open the 2011 RBS 6 Nations with a trip to Italy next February, while the first Championship game at the Aviva Stadium will be a Sunday game against France. Declan Kidney’s men will finish the campaign with a home fixture against England.

The RBS 6 Nations Championship will kick off on a Friday night in 2011 when Wales host England on February 4.

Ireland will open their 2011 campaign with a trip to Italy on Saturday, February 5. France will play Scotland later that day in Paris.

The first RBS 6 Nations game at the Aviva Stadium will take place a week later on Sunday, February 13, with France providing the opposition.

There is a free weekend after that before the Championship resumes with Ireland again playing on a Sunday, this time against Scotland at Murrayfield.

Another free week in March is followed by a Saturday evening trip for Declan Kidney’s men to the Millennium Stadium to play Wales.

The ‘Super Saturday’ final day of the Championship sees Scotland at home to Italy and France at home to Wales either side of Ireland’s last game – an evening kick-off against England at the Aviva Stadium.
