Welsh Rugby Union | Wales and regions

The match comes as the WRU has partnered with Wales’ #KeepWalesSafe campaign following confirmation that home games will be played in front of an audience at the Principality Stadium.

The competition is open to anyone in Wales under the age of 17. The winning design will be chosen by the rugby stars of Wales and worn by the Welsh teams during the Six Nations. The winner will also receive free tickets to see their sports heroes in action on the pitch.

Wayne Pivac’s side will look to take back-to-back titles for the second time since the 1970s in the Guinness Six Nations in 2022. Their title chase kicks off on February 5 in Dublin against Ireland, with home games in Cardiff against Scotland, Italy and France on either side of a trip to Twickenham to play England at the end of February.

Meanwhile, the Women’s Six Nations Championships have a standalone slot in the calendar with Wales’ first game against Ireland scheduled for the 26e March, with each round following the same order as the senior men’s team.

Wales Team Manager, Martyn Williams said: “It has been a difficult time for everyone but it is important that we all do our part to keep each other and Wales safe. Wearing a mask is something we can all easily do, and we look forward to seeing the designs of our young supporters appear.”
