The upcoming Under-18 Six Nations Festivals offer a chance to take a first look at the stars set to light up both the Guinness Six Nations and TikTok Women’s Six Nations in the years to come.
Across six matchdays – three each for the men’s and women’s competitions – the best young prospects across Europe will go head-to-head at Wellington College, Berkshire, and Energia Park, Dublin.
First up is the Under-18 Women’s Festival, which begins on April 7. Six 35-minute matches will be played, as they will on Matchday 2 on April 11, before three 70-minute clashes round off the action on April 15.
The day after each women’s matchday, the Under-18 Men’s Festivals will be staged in the Irish capital.
These will each contain three 70-minute matches, and Matchday 1 begins by seeing Wales taking on Italy, before hosts Ireland face Scotland in the second of three matches. England’s clash with France concludes the opening day of men’s action.
France are first up on Matchday 2, locking horns with Scotland. Italy and England are next to do battle before the day ends with Wales versus Ireland.
The final round kicks off with Scotland’s clash against Wales, before France face Italy and England go up against Ireland in the last match of this year’s competition.
Spectators are able to attend the matchdays at both Wellington College and Energia Park but if you’re unable to make it, every game will be live streamed across both festivals.
Fans will be able to follow all the action across our Six Nations Rugby channels, offering commentary in English. For French and Italian commentary, please visit France or Italy’s official rugby channels.
