The Women’s Six Nations returns and promises plenty of intrigue in 2024 with England again favourites for the crown.

The Red Roses have won the last five editions of the championship and begin life under new head coach John Mitchell looking to continue that success.

But France have pushed them close repeatedly over the last few years and will hope to finally return to the top of the table having achieved a significant win over New Zealand during WXV in the autumn.

An improving Wales, Scotland, Ireland and Italy will all hope to make more progress in the tournament and challenge the top two.
