Live Coverage of Six Nations Rugby 2012 on the BBC

The BBC will bring viewers live action from the 2012 Six Nations, offering comprehensive multi-platform coverage of the entire Championship.

Live coverage starts today (Saturday 4 February), with France v Italy (kick-off 2:30pm) and Scotland v England (kick-off 5pm), both on BBC One and BBC One HD.

[[John Inverdale]] will present the BBC’s coverage, along with [[Gabby Logan]] and Jason Mohammed. Commentary comes from Eddie Butler, Andrew Cotter and Alastair Eykyn, with Jonathan Davies, Phillip Matthews, Brian Moore and Andy Nicol as co-commentators.

Wales rugby legend Shane Williams joins the BBC team this year and will be offering expert insight and analysis on three of Wales’ matches. He adds to the already expert analyst line-up of Jonathan Davies, Jeremy Guscott, Andy Nicol, Keith Wood and Lawrence Dallaglio.

The pitchside reporting team includes Jill Douglas, Sonja McLaughlan and Graham Thomas.

Every game of the tournament will be shown live on BBC One and BBC One HD apart from France v Ireland (11 February) and Scotland v France (26 February), which will be broadcast on BBC Two and BBC HD.

“We’re proud to once again bring all the action from the oldest and most-famous international rugby union tournament in the world and we’re delighted to have signed a new rights agreement to broadcast the event through to 2017,” said Carl Hicks, BBC Six Nations Rugby Union editor.

“Last year over 32 million people tuned in to the tournament, which shows how much audiences across the UK love the Six Nations as it continues to excite and entertain.”

A 45 mins highlights programme will be available post-match, replayed on the red button and also available on the BBC iPlayer.

All matches will also be live on Radio 5 live or 5 live sports extra, streamed live on the new BBC Sport website and will be available on BBC iPlayer for up to a week after the live fixture.
