Stadio Olimpico

Weather can affect the outcome of most outdoor sports

6 February - 21 March - Can Italy be crowned RBS 6 Nations champions in 2015? Check the Rome weather forecast.

The 5 Nations tournament became the 6 Nations when Italy joined the group in 2000. The Italian rugby team will play their home games at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome, which is also where football teams Lazio and Roma play their home games.

Italy kick off their RBS 6 Nations campaign on Saturday 7 February against Ireland at their home stadium. When these two teams met at the Avivia Stadium in 2014 Ireland won 46-7.

Italy will be looking to continue upon last year's improved performance in the RBS Six Nations, where they did not win any games and we subsequently last in the tournament.

Italy have three home fixtures in the 2015 RBS 6 Nations against Ireland, France and Wales.

Check the Rome weather forecast for each of Italy's home games at the Stadio Olimpico.
