SCOTLAND will face this year’s Grand Slam champions Wales in the final game of next season’s Six Nations championship.

The fixture schedule for the next two seasons was unveiled this morning, with Gregor Townsend’s team facing a tricky trip away to Ireland in the opening weekend of the 2020 tournament, before attempting to get their hands on the Calcutta Cup for the third consecutive season for the first time since 1972 when England pitch up at Murrayfield for round three. That is followed by a trip to Rome to take on Italy and a home tie against France in the penultimate round.

The 2021 tournament gets under way with a return to Twickenham to take on England, followed by Wales at home, France away, Ireland at home and Italy also at home.
