The 2022 Six Nations match has been announced and we are back in rugby on Friday night in Wales.
Next year’s men’s tournament, where the Welsh side of Wayne Pivac will bid to maintain the title, will run from February 5th to March 19th.
The Welsh campaign begins for Ireland, hosts Scotland and will face England in Twickenham in the third round.
In the fourth round, we will return to the controversial Friday night match for Wales, who will host France at the Principal Stadium on March 11.
After that, the Pivac side will end the tournament with Italy on Super Saturday (March 19th). This is the first match of the day, followed by Ireland vs Scotland and France vs England.
The kick-off time will be announced at a later date.
Equipment on Friday night has proven to be controversial in the past, and travel issues such as traffic jams and public transport congestion are real problems for fans entering and exiting the game.The Principality is expected to work back to full crowd capacity by next year with equipment this fall. Already assigned for fan return.
In 2017, WRU told Six Nations that it wasn’t ready to perform any more Friday night matches in the championship for a foreseeable future. At that stage, Wales has been involved in all seven Friday games since it was introduced to the tournament in 2009 and has hosted six games, including a clash with Ireland in 2017.
WRU said it was time for other nations to bear the burden, feeling they had done it little by little. England has always refused to host a Friday night Six Nations match in Twickenham because of travel issues in the area.
Former WRU Chairman Gareth Davies said in 2017:
“I think it’s mainly because of all the unfavorable criticisms we receive.
“It’s hell to come to Cardiff on Friday anyway.” Looking at our route to Six Nations, we’ve done a bit, so I think others should share the burden. “
I want you to know everything that is happening before and after the announcement of the Lions team.

Ben Morel, CEO of Six Nations, said: “The 2021 Championship was one of the most competitive in history, winning less than 7 points in 8 out of 15 games.
“The Super Saturday drama, in which France won its final and final victory over Wales, meant that the championship winner was only revealed after the final round.
“It was an amazing effort of many people, especially unions, broadcasters, the media, and our partner players and staff to achieve the championship.
“The effort paid off in the form of the most enthusiastic championship I’ve ever seen with the Recall viewers. This was a truly special achievement. This Guinness Six Nations has attracted many of its longtime fans. Entertain and believe we have won a lot of new things too.
“I’m looking forward to next year’s championship. I hope we can bring our fans back to the stadium and bring that unparalleled Guinness Six Nations atmosphere to living rooms, pubs and rugby clubs around the world. . “
