The defending Six Nations Grand Slam champion, Ireland Rugby, returns to the famed Six Nations Rugby Championship on the first day of Round 1. 

Ireland, along with Six Nations: Full Contact star Andrew Porter, went 5-0 in 2023 en route to the Irish's third Grand Slam win. 

Ireland is looking to bounce back from its surprising loss in the quarterfinals of the 2023 Rugby World Cup. The Irish were the No.1 team in the world and had defeated South Africa in pool play, but powerhouse New Zealand upset Ireland 28-24 in the quarterfinals.

South Africa went on to win the Rugby World Cup. 

Now, Ireland has a chance to regain its footing, and perhaps even its No.1 world ranking, currently owned by South Africa. 

Here's when the Irish play in the 2024 Six Nations.

Ireland Rugby Does Not Have The Best Six Nations Odds

While Ireland went 5-0 and completed the Grand Slam in 2023, according to a collection of betting sites, including Draftkings and Fanduel, France is the betting favorite to win the Six Nations in 2024, followed by Ireland and England.
