How to follow the 2021 Women's Six Nations
This weekend sees the start of the 2021 Women’s Six Nations and we’ll be with the Scotland team throughout the tournament.
The Championship consists of two pools of three teams, before concluding with Finals Day on Saturday 24 April. Pool A consists of England, Italy and Scotland, while Pool B features France, Ireland and Wales.
On Saturday, Bryan Easson’s side travel to Doncaster to play England (kick-off 3pm BST), live on BBC iPlayer. Scotland's match against Italy will also be broadcast on iPlayer, with the Final Weekend fixture available on BBC Scotland.
At the Women’s Six Nations digital launch, Scotland captain Rachel Malcolm said her team are ready for the challenge:
“All of the teams involved in the Six Nations have had upsets in the last year, whether that was due to games being cancelled, postponed or whatever.
“It’s a process we’ve gone through as a team, and the attitude from all the players and management has been fantastic. I think we’re in a really good place now in terms of our togetherness.
“Our mindset has completely shifted now. We used to focus far too much on our opposition, but now we’ve got a huge amount of belief in the squad we’ve built.
“In previous years I might have thought it was a daunting start against England but this year that’s just not the way we’re thinking."
"We are very excited to come up against one of the world’s best teams, and do our absolute best for Scotland." Scotland captain Rachel Malcolm
