The 2023 Six Nations gets underway on 4 February 2023. It has proven to be the best international tournament over the last few years considering the serious competition from a number of sides.

In 2022 France eventually prevailed after losing out narrowly in the previous two editions. While they wre early favourites again this year, Ireland have taken that mantle with bet365.

France are now priced at 2.75 which makes it a very close race between them and Ireland.

More than any other tournament the Six Nations can be greatly affected by the fixtures. Because there are five games for each, some will always play three home and two away, and others vice versa. They change it around every year to give everyone a similar schedule.

France only have two home games in 2023 against Scotland and Wales but they do play Italy away, a team most others prefer to play away as victory has been almost guaranteed of late.

France do play both Ireland and England away which could be very tricky. If they retain the title they certainly deserve it.

Another factor to remember is that 2023 is a Rugby World Cup year. This could force coaches into resting key players at different parts of the tournament.
