Where To Watch: 2022 Six Nations Under-20s

Where to watch u20 six nations

The Six Nations Under-20s returns with a bang on Friday night and you can watch the brightest young rugby stars in Europe take centre stage live from the comfort of your own home.

Following last year’s one-off format of a summer Championship played solely at one venue, the 2022 edition sees fixtures taking place on the Friday night before their senior counterparts take to the field.

A guide to the 2022 Six Nations Under-20s

It gets better, as viewers in the UK can now watch every match in the Six Nations Under-20s on BBC iPlayer, while every game will be available in Ireland on RTÉ and Virgin Media.

Every Italy Under-20s game will be shown by Sky Italia, while every France Under-20s match will be broadcast live on L’Equipe’s channel with the rest of the fixtures being streamed on their website and app.

With all three matches in Round 1 kicking off at the same time, there is plenty of choice for fans.

There was no stopping England in last year’s Championship, as they swept to a Grand Slam at Cardiff Arms Park.

However, with most of the players in that squad now moved on, it is a new-look team that will have to gel quickly when they travel to the DAM Health Stadium to face Scotland.

England won last year’s encounter 31-12 and the Scots will be looking for an improved showing when they field what is the more experienced of the two line-ups.

The match between Ireland and Wales at Musgrave Park will also be available on S4C for Welsh language viewers, with their coverage starting at 7:50pm.

Preview: Scotland U20 v England U20

There is always a good crowd in Cork and the home supporters will be hoping this year’s meeting goes as well as the Irish’s 40-12 win in the 2021 Six Nations Under-20s.

Meanwhile, reigning under-20 world champions France are aiming to go one better than last year’s second-place finish.

They begin their campaign with a home game against Italy, who they edged past 13-11 last time out, at the Stade Guy Boniface in Mont-de-Marsan.
