Venues and match times have been confirmed for the 2016 Women’s Rugby Six Nations Tournament. Matches kick off February 6, 2016 with France taking on Italy at the home of the Stade de France, home of the 2014 Women’s Rugby World Cup . Other matches on the opening weekend include a tough Scotland squad who will try to edge a young England team and reigning Champions Ireland will face off against 5th place Wales.
Will Ireland be able to win back-to-back titles or will up and coming France and Italy rue the day? You also can’t forget the ever dominant England…

As usual, the appointments for the 15 championship fixtures feature a blend of northern and southern hemisphere match officials. Rose Labrèche (Canada) and Marie Lematte (France) will make their Six Nations debuts in the 2016 championship.
