That is in addition to all 91 matches from Super Rugby Pacific also aired live on both media platforms.

Since 1882, the Six Nations Rugby tournament has been taking place, attracting millions of sports followers and fans from around the globe.

The competition features England, France, Ireland, and Wales – all Tier 1 sides in the Top 8 of World Rugby rankings. Italy is the sixth side, currently ranked 14th on WR standing. The six nations would be competing for the cup and be crowned as champions of the 23rd Six Nations edition.

The competition kicks off this Sunday (Samoa Time) February 6th with the final round on Sunday, March 20th.

Digicel Samoa CEO, Seiuli Deepak Khanna, said; “We are thrilled to add the prestigious Six Nations Rugby Championship to our growing live rugby and overall premium live sports portfolio. These 15 international tests between some of the highest-ranking teams in World Rugby again solidifies our position as the Home of Rugby and represents great value for our customers.”

Six Nations Championship is bound to be full of drama after last year’s last-minute French win over the Welsh, which meant that the winner of the Championship was only revealed after the final match was played.

This year’s first match starts on Sunday morning, February 6 with Ireland hosting title holders Wales, Scotland play at home against England, and France faces Italy at the Stade de France in Paris, on Monday morning, February 7th.

“This is a delight for rugby and sports fans – Digicel TV and PlayGo app subscribers will now be able to enjoy the best of the club and international rugby from both southern and northern hemispheres.
