Women's Six Nations 2023 live stream: Preview
It's the final round of the 2023 Women's Six Nations this weekend, and England are sitting pretty at the top of the standings with 20 points. France are one point behind, ahead of Wales on 10.
Round 5 kicks off with England vs France at Twickenham on Saturday at 1pm BST. The huge title-decider will see Marlie Packer's Red Roses take on Audrey Forlani's Les Bleues in what's set to be the match of the tournament.
Four-time consecutive reigning champions England remain the team to beat but, with skipper Emily Scarratt injured, coach Simon Middleton faces a tough task maintaining the levels that have taken England to the top of the world rankings.
France are certainly best-positioned to take advantage of on any potential slump on England's part. They were the last team to win the competition before the Red Roses' four-year spell of dominance, and although last year's Player of the Championship Laure Sansus has hung up her boots, coaches Gaelle Mignot and David Ortiz have a strong group of players.
Later in the day, Italy play Wales (3.30pm BST) and Scotland lock horns with Ireland (7.30pm BST).
All games are free to view in the UK and Ireland. Here's how to watch a Women's Six Nations 2023 live stream from anywhere.

Women's Six Nations 2023 tickets
Tickets for the Women's Six Nations are just as difficult to get a hold of as those for the men's tournament, if not more so. That's largely because the vast majority of fixtures are being played in second- or third-tier stadiums.
Just five of the total number of 15 games will be played at a venue that has capacity for 10,000 spectators or more, which doesn't reflect well on sport's decision-makers.
Each Union has its own ticketing procedure, so the first step to purchasing a ticket is to sign up to the mailing list of the Union you support. If you're looking to travel to away matches, make sure to check out each Union’s information resource or official travel partner for packages.
Check out your options from the relevant Union below:
- England Rugby
- Fédération Française de Rugby
- Irish Rugby Football Union
- Federazione Italiana Rugby
- Scottish Rugby Union
- Welsh Rugby Union
