The Six Nations is back for 2022, running from 5th February – 19th March, and with England second faves to lift the trophy behind France, it’s set to be another thrilling tournament. This year spectators will be allowed back into the stadiums, but if you haven’t got tickets and don’t want to miss a single kick, tackle or scrum, here are the best places to watch the Six Nations. And if you fancy a little friendly competition with your mates whilst you’re at it, make sure you join LOTI A.M.C too.
