The schedule of matches for the 2005 RBS 6 Nations, published on Tuesday, reveals that next year's Championship will begin at the Stade de France on February 5th, with the Tournament Champions, France, playing host to Scotland, and will conclude on 19th March, when all six nations will compete in another 'Super Saturday'.

Immediately after the curtain-raiser in Paris, World Champions, England, will travel to the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff to meet Wales, and the following day Italy will play host to Ireland. The final match of the tournament will be played out at Twickenham between England and Scotland.

Jacques Laurans, 6 Nations Chairman, said, "We recently concluded yet another fine RBS 6 Nations tournament. Contrary to all the predictions beforehand, this was not a Championship which was decided by the final whistle of the first match. In reality, it hung in the balance until the very last moment. I hope that 2005 will prove to be even half as exciting".
