Twickenham

Rugby players in a scrum

Twickenham stadium has been the home of English rugby since 1907 when it was purchased by the Rugby football association.

After topping the 6 Nations table in 2011, England were runners up in both 2012 and 2013. Last year Wales beat England with a record win of 30-3 before Wales went on to win the 2013 RBS 6 Nations title. England will undoubtedly be looking to beat the current champions to stop Wales taking the title for a third year in a row.

England play their first home game of the 2013 6 Nations campaign at Twickenham, in the third round against Ireland on the 22 February at 16.00. England will be looking to retain the Calcutta Cup from Scotland after beating the Scots 38-18 at Twickenham last year. England have held the Calcutta Cup since 2009.

England have two home fixtures at Twickenham in the 6 Nations in 2014 against Ireland and Wales. Check the forecast for each of England's home matches at .
