Round three.

The Six Nations returns to our television screens this weekend with three more huge fixtures set to be contested.

Up first, Friday Night Lights returns as France host Italy in Marseille in what promises to be an entertaining encounter. Wayne Barnes will be the man in the middle for that game, assisted by John Lacey and Luke Pearce.

On Saturday we’ve got Ireland taking on Wales first. New Zealand’s Glen Jackson will take charge of that fixture. He’ll be assisted by Pascal Gaüzère and England’s Matthew Carley.

Finally we’ve got Scotland hosting England in the Calcutta Cup. Welshman Nigel Owens will take charge of that, with Jérôme Garcès and Ireland’s Andrew Brace assisting him.
