Six Nations fixtures revealed for 2018 and 2019
Reigning champions England will begin their next two Six Nations campaigns on the road and finish both on home soil.
The fixtures for the 2018 and 2019 tournaments were published on Tuesday, with Eddie Jones' side pitted against Italy away in next year's opening round, when France host Ireland and Scotland are the visitors to Wales.
That competition kicks off on February 3 and Ireland - who spoiled England's hopes of back-to-back Grand Slams this time around - will travel to Twickenham on the final day.
In 2019 it will be England who head to Dublin for their tournament opener - finishing at home to Scotland - with the other first-round fixtures seeing France welcome Wales, while Italy face a trip Murrayfield.
The next edition of the annual event will see France take on Italy at home, but not in Paris. A venue for that fixture will be announced in the coming weeks.
