Six Nations Schedule 2024: Here's When Finn Russell, Scotland Rugby Play

Finn Russell and Scotland Rugby look to win their first Six Nations championship since 1999.

Jan 27, 2024 by Joe Harrington

Superstar Finn Russell, the standout fly-half for Bath Rugby and Scotland's national team, leads his country back to the Six Nations with the goal of finally winning the tournament. 

Russell, one of the featured players in Netflix's "Six Nations: Full Contact" documentary series, has been a mainstay for the Scottish national team since 2014 with 107 appearances and 470 points. 

Last year, Scotland was third on the Six Nations table with a 3-0-2 record, falling to Grand Slam champion Ireland and then-defending champion France. At the time, those were the top two teams in the world. 

Scotland hasn't won the Six Nations since 1999, when it was known as the Five Nations, and has not won the Grand Slam or Triple Crown since 1990. In fact, Scotland has struggled in the Six Nations this century, even obtaining the "Wooden Spoon" in 2015. The special award is given to the team that finishes in last place.

But with stars such as Russell, Jamie Ritchie and Duhan Van Der Merwe, Scotland hopes to snap the 25-year drought.
