  • +1

The Women’s 2018 Six Nations fixtures have been confirmed with England playing two home games at the Twickenham Stoop and Ricoh Arena.

All of the Red Roses Test matches are set to be broadcast live on Sky Sports.

The schedule replicates that of the senior men and U20 teams, with the Red Roses starting their campaign at Stadio Mirabello against Italy, on Sunday 4 February (KO 17:30 GMT).

England then host Wales a week later at the Twickenham Stoop on Saturday 10th February (KO 12:15 ) a curtain raiser to the men’s fixture which kicks off at Twickenham at 16:45.

The Red Roses next travel to Glasgow to face Scotland on 23rd February (KO 19:30) and then to Grenoble two weeks later where they face France at Stade des Alpes (KO 20:00 GMT).

England will finish their campaign against Ireland a week later playing for the first time at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry on Friday 16th March (KO 17:30).

England Women head coach Simon Middleton today said: “The Six Nations is one of the flagship competitions in the women’s game. It’s a highly competitive tournament and we always encounter a tough level of competition. It’s great to be back playing at the Stoop again and also getting back out on the road for our last fixture in the Ricoh arena.

“While it was an incredible achievement to take home a Grand Slam Championship last year, going into 2018, that counts for nothing, this is a new squad and a new challenge and we are determined to go out and win the competition once again.”
