As a busy weekend of rugby approaches, with the beginning of rugby's Six Nations tournament, Wanted in Rome publishes the fixtures below. In the first weekend, Italy take on France in Paris, England face Scotland in Edinburgh and Wales cross the Irish Sea to play against the home-side in Dublin.

While there are many pubs in the capital screening the matches, including Fiddlers Elbow, Druid's Den and Scholar's Lounge, if you are looking for authentic (and loud) atmosphere, our advice is to head to the rugby-mad Shamrock on Via del Colosseo, the favoured watering place of Rome's rugby players. www.shamrockpubroma.it
