England head to Dublin looking to stun World number two side Ireland in their opening game of the Guinness Six Nations live on ITV on Saturday, February 2nd from 4pm.

Last year saw Ireland take the Grand Slam in the Six Nations, sealing it in style with an impressive 24-15 victory over England at Twickenham, something their opponents will want to avenge when the to sides meet on Saturday afternoon.

Following on from an impressive autumn with a memorable victory over New Zealand, Ireland head into the Six Nations as favourites to retain their crown.

A resurgent England will have other ideas, however, as Eddie Jones' side look to start the year strongly ahead of the World Cup in Japan later in 2019.

Mark Pougatch presents all the action from ITV's first televised match of the tournament and will be joined by Jonny Wilkinson, Brian O’Driscoll and Sir Clive Woodward in the studio with Nick Mullins, Lawrence Dallaglio and Gordon D’Arcy in the commentary box.
