Watch: Six Nations Round Four preview - Wales v France, Italy v Scotland & England v Ireland

Our Sports Team discuss the fourth round of fixtures from Rugby’s Greatest Championship and make their predictions on who will pick up victories.

The 2022 Six Nations Championship returns this weekend with three more fantastic fixtures.

Round Four kicks off under the Friday night lights in Cardiff as Wales host Grand Slam chasing France as the reigning champions go head-to-head with the champions elect.

The Saturday action begins in Rome where Italy are still chasing a first Six Nations win since 2015. That victory came against Scotland but could they replicate the achievement in 2022? Gregor Townsend’s is fielding a strong team to try and make sure they don’t slip up.

Finally, the match of the weekend concludes Round Four as England host Ireland at Twickenham and the match is a must win for both if they are going to keep their title hopes alive going into Super Saturday.

NationalWorld Sports Reporter Martyn Simpson and the Sunderland Echo’s James Copley sat down to discuss the Round Four fixtures and give their opinions on what each team should expect from their next match.

You can watch them break down the third round matches and make their predictions for this weekend in the above video at the top of this article.
