Six Nations: Scotland v Ireland
The 2017 Six Nations gets underway as Scotland host Ireland at Murrayfield. Scotland are on resurgent form but will have to be at their best to match an Ireland team fresh from their autumn victory over New Zealand.

Saturday February 4
4.50pm
ITV1
Six Nations: England v France
England coach Eddie Jones has urged his men to hit the ground running with this game after a slowish start to the tournament last year. France, as usual, are a bit of an unknown quantity but could threaten England if inspiration takes them.


Sunday February 5

2pm
ITV1
Six Nations: Italy v Wales
Wales have a new captain in Alun Wyn Jones and will be confident of getting their campaign off to a winning start here. However, Italy could put up some mighty resistance on their home turf.


Friday February 10

7pm
BT Sport 1 HD
Aviva Premiership: Bath Rugby v Northampton Saints
This is a crucial time for Saints after a really disappointing season to date and a chance for the team’s non-internationals to really step up to the plate and give the team a much-needed boost in the Aviva Premiership. Bath will also be keen to get some points and maintain their position in the top four.


Saturday February 11

12.30pm
Sky Sports 1 HD
Barclays Premier League: Arsenal v Hull City
The Gunners should have too much firepower to be troubled by Hull City, particularly at the Emirates Stadium. The last league tie between the sides finished 4-1 in Arsenal’s favour.


Saturday February 11

2.45pm
BBC1
Six Nations: Wales v England
This is sure to be a mighty battle between these famous rivals and with the roof closed at the Millennium Stadium, the conditions should be perfect for some running rugby from both sides.


Saturday February 11

5.30pm
BT Sport 1 HD
Barclays Premier League: Liverpool v Tottenham Hotspur
A really fascinating encounter at Anfield between two of the most exciting teams in the league. The Tottenham home leg of this fixture resulted in a 1-1 draw but both sides will be out for a definitive result here.


Sunday February 12

12.30pm
BT Sport 1 HD
Aviva Premiership: Exeter Chiefs v Wasps
Wasps have been in superlative form for much of the season but can they continue their march towards the title with their international contingent on Six Nations duty? The Chiefs may just fancy their chances of causing an upset here given that their success is based firmly on teamwork.


Sunday February 12

1.30pm
Sky Sports 1 HD
Barclays Premier League: Burnley v Chelsea
Chelsea are seemingly on target to clinch the title but will need to avoid slip-ups against the lower ranked sides in the league. That said, an away trip to Burnley will hold little fear for Conte’s men.


Sunday February 12

4pm
Sky Sports 1 HD
Barclays Premier League: Swansea City v Leicester City
Last season’s heroics seem an age away for Leicester City with their title defence faltering from the start of the 2016/17 campaign. Given that their away form has been nothing short of dreadful, Leicester may struggle on the trip to Wales.


Monday February 13

8pm
Sky Sports 1 HD
Barclays Premier League: AFC Bournemouth v Manchester City
Man City’s 4-0 victory over Bournemouth back in September was one of their best performances of the season. De Bruyne, Iheanacho, Sterling and Gundogan did the damage in a scintillating encounter.

7.45pm
BT Sport HD
UEFA Champions League: Round of 16, 1st Leg - Bayern Munich v Arsenal
Arsenal head to the Allianz Arena in Munich for a daunting game against one of Europe’s most consistent teams. A draw here would be a major achievement and would give the Gunners huge confidence ahead of the 2nd leg game in London.


Thursday February 16

8.05pm
BT Sport HD
UEFA Europa League: Round of 32, 1st Leg - Manchester United v St Etienne
Mourinho’s men face French side St Etienne in this Round of 32 encounter. United reached the last 16 of the competition last season before being eliminated by Liverpool 3-2 on aggregate.


Friday February 17
7pm
BT Sport 1 HD
Aviva Premiership:Gloucester Rugby v Saracens
Kingsholm in Gloucester remains one of the great cauldrons of world rugby but Saracens will still be confident of victory there.

Saturday February 18
2.30pm
BT Sport 1 HD
Aviva Premiership: Sale Sharks v Wasps
The absence of Wasps’ international players could well have a negative impact on their chances of victory here, even against a Sale Sharks side who have a tendency to blow results in the final quarter.


Monday February 20

8pm
Sky Sports 1 HD
Championship Football: Newcastle United v Aston Villa
Few Championship games will garner as much interest as this one given the huge support commanded by both teams and it will be a match both teams will be out to win.


Tuesday February 21

7.45pm
BT Sport HD
UEFA Champions League: Round of 16, 1st Leg - Manchester City v Monaco
City would probably have preferred to play their home leg second against big-spending Monaco but will be happy with the draw overall having avoided the likes of Atletico Madrid, Juventus, Borussia Dortmund and Napoli at this stage.


Wednesday February 22

7.45pm
BT Sport HD
UEFA Champions League: Round of 16, 1st Leg - Sevilla v Leicester City
The fairy story may be over in terms of their grip on the Barclays Premier League trophy but Leicester may still be able to write a few more chapters in their European history.


Friday February 24

8.05pm
BT Sport 1 HD
Aviva Premiership:Harlequins v Leicester Tigers
Leicester Tigers have been a team in crisis during the past few months and will probably be aiming for damage limitation in the second half of the season before starting afresh in 2017/18.


Sunday February 26

2.15pm
Sky Sports 1 HD
Barclays Premier League: Manchester City v Manchester United
The games between the blue and red halves of Manchester are always required viewing and this should be no exception. City won 2-1 at Old Trafford back in September and revenge for that home defeat will be uppermost in the minds of United.
