Stadio Olimpico

Weather can affect the outcome of most outdoor sports

1 February-15 March - Can Italy be crowned RBS 6 Nations champions in 2014? 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 1 February against Wales at the Millennium Stadium. When these two teams met at the Stadio Olimpico in 2013 Wales won 26-9.

Italy will be looking to continue upon last year's improved performance in the RBS Six Nations, after finishing fourth last year and fifth in 2012.

Italy have two home fixtures in the 2014 RBS 6 Nations against Scotland and England.

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