Six Nations Rugby 2010

Rugby fans are gearing up for February to start as it sees the beginning of the 2010 RBS Six Nations. The Six Nations sees rugby fans from Ireland, Scotland, England, Wales, France and Italy travel to and from each other's stadiums to watch their teams in action.

Saturday February 6th will see all the exciting action kick off in Dublin's Croke Park as Ireland take on Italy in the first game of the RBS Six Nations 2010. Rugby fans are dedicated to following their teams, especially when it comes to the Six Nations so that's why we've put together this list of need to know facts for each city for the Six Nations along with cheap places to stay in each city!

Six Nations Ireland

If you are coming to see Ireland play at home then make sure you know how to get to Croke Park in Dublin as that's where all the current Grand Slam winners will be in action. This Irish stadium will also see the opening game of the RBS Six Nations on February 6th as Ireland take on Italy at 2.30pm. Croke Park will play host to two more Ireland home games after this opening one - Ireland v Wales on March 13th and Ireland v Scotland on March 20th. Dublin always boasts a great atmosphere for rugby matches both in and outside of the stadium so it's worth visiting the city to support either team. And you could also make a weekend out of it and get in some Dublin sightseeing by booking one of these cheap hostels in Dublin to stay in!

Six Nations Scotland

Scotland will play the third match of the RBS Six Nations 2010 on February 7th against France at home in Murrayfield. Both sides will have a strong following throughout the Six Nations so get working on getting your tickets now. Scotland will also entertain England at home on March 13th in what's bound to be a sell-out as these two sporting rivals go head to head so book a bed in a cheap hostel in Edinburgh quickly. And if this is your first time at Murrayfield, or even to Edinburgh, we recommend that you make a weekend out of it and stay in the Scottish capital for a few days. Edinburgh is an amazing city with lots to see and do all over, where the atmosphere on a Six Nations match weekend is second to none! Edinburgh is a city that puts on a great rugby spectacular and if you need any travel advice for your trip then take a look at our blog posts on Edinburgh.

Six Nations England

Twickenham is the home of English rugby and will host 2 matches for the RBS Six Nations 2010. The first of these will take place on the opening day of the Six Nations and will see England on home ground to Wales which promises to be a cracker. Our advice, book your cheap London hostel now. Twickenham Stadium is located on the aptly titled Rugby Road outside of London. The stadium is easy enough to get to with many forms of transport available - the tube or train to nearby stations are probably the handiest port of call for supporters staying around London city.
