Calling all rugby or potential rugby fans! The Six Nations Championship is the hallmark of the European rugby season—watch England; Ireland; Scotland; Wales; Italy and France battle it out for the title of the greatest European rugby nation. Ireland kicks off its participation in the 2012 RBS 6 Nations Championship in a home match against Wales next Sunday. Following Ireland’s defeat to a strong Welsh side in the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand just a few months ago–Ireland will certainly be looking to make amends in what promises to be a great match as both teams kick off their RBS 6 Nations campaign. David Pickering, Chairman of the Six Nations Council, said: “The RBS 6 Nations Championship remains the envy of the rugby world, a tournament played with pride and passion and drenched in history and tradition”. Why not check out Ireland’s newest and perhaps most impressive stadium while soaking up the priceless atmosphere next Sunday?
