Sky Sports is set to offer live coverage of four of the five England Women's Six Nations matches.

Viewers will get to see the Red Roses take on rivals France, Wales, Italy and Ireland as the action unfolds, with action from the game against Scotland being shown later that evening.

This is the first time coverage of all five of England Women's Six Nations games has been shown on British television.

Gus Williamson, Head of Rugby at Sky Sports, believes this is "great news" for its viewers and "another example of our strong partnership with the RFU across all levels".

"This deal will give our viewers more action from the Women's Six Nations than ever before, which adds to a thrilling year of women's rugby on Sky Sports," he commented.

Other highlights in the coming months include live action from all six legs of the HSBC World Rugby Women's Seven Series, along with action from the Old Mutual Wealth Series.

Ian Ritchie, Chief Executive of the RFU, said: "This commitment from Sky Sports reflects what an exciting time it is for women’s rugby and the ongoing growth of the game. 

"This is an excellent opportunity for any fans unable to attend games to get behind the Red Roses as they build towards the Women’s Rugby World Cup in Ireland later this year."

People without Sky Sports subscriptions can still keep up with the action through online TV streaming service NOW TV.

A Sky Sports Day Pass costs £6.99, while a weekly pass costs £10.99, offering access to all seven Sky Sports channels on TV to those with a NOW TV box.
