The 25th edition of the Six Nations Championship is almost at an end with just the final round of fixtures remaining. It's set to be a pulsating final weekend with plenty still to play as Ireland look to defend their title by defeating Scotland, while England will hope the Auld Enemy can do them a favor as they seek a victory over France that could see them crowned champions. 

Elsewhere, Italy will be out to claim a second victory of the campaign when they face a Wales side that remains winless and currently sits bottom of the standings. 

You won't want to miss a second of the 2024 Six Nations and, thankfully, you won't have to, because all games are FREE to watch in the U.K... And don't worry if you're away — you can watch 2024 Six Nations Championship live streams from anywhere with a VPN.

The fourth round of the 2024 Six Nations delivered plenty of entertainment that began with Italy surviving some late pressure from Scotland to secure a 31-29 victory. Tries from Ignacio Brex, debutant Louis Lynagh and Stephen Varney helped Gonzalo Quesada's side gain a first win in 27 Six Nations games. 

Italy now have the chance to avoid finishing bottom for the first time in 10 years and secure their highest finish since taking fourth place in 2013. A draw in Cardiff would be enough to ensure Gonzalo Quesada's team avoid the Wooden Spoon and would instead condemn Wales to finishing at the foot of the table. 

The Welsh have had a campaign to forget after falling to a 45-24 defeat to France who will round off their Six Nations at home against England. Steve Borthwick's side still have a chance of claiming the title thanks to their stunning win over Ireland and will be seeking a bonus-point victory in Lyon. 

However, it is Ireland that remain the favorites to retain their crown. Andy Farrell's side host Scotland in Dublin and know that even a draw would be enough to once again secure the Six Nations. They may well be in for a fight though as Gregor Townsend's side, who slipped to a 31-29 loss to Italy in round four, still have the opportunity to complete the Triple Crown. 

It's set to be a fascinating final weekend and you can follow it all by watching Six Nations Championship live streams. We'll show you how to do that below, wherever you are in the world.
