TOURNAMENT ORGANISERS HAVE released the fixture lists for the 2016 and 2017 Six Nations, with Ireland set to travel to Wales on a Friday night in two years’ time.
The 2015 competition gets underway this weekend as Warren Gatland’s side face England at the Millenium Stadium, but the Six Nations has provided fans with the opportunity to begin planning for the next two years.
Ireland have yet to take part in a dreaded Friday evening Six Nations fixture, but will do so on 10 March, 2017 when they visit Wales.
Next year, Ireland begin with a home clash against the Welsh on Sunday 7 February, before travelling to France on Saturday 13 February. Their third fixture sees them away to England on Saturday 27 February.
Ireland’s final two fixtures in 2016 involve a home tie against Italy on 12 March, before another Saturday game on 19 March at home to Scotland.
