This year's Six Nations adds a special factor as once the action is over the teams will go on to the Rugby World Cup later in 2019. That means there is plenty of pressure on Scotland and Italy as their performances over the next couple of months will set the trend for the upcoming international competition. The good news for you, dear reader, is that you can watch all the Six Nations rugby action and, a Scotland vs Italy live stream in particular, from anywhere you are in the world using this guide.

While Scotland and Italy and expected to sit at the lower end of the table for this tournament, they're still putting forward ever improving and powerful teams that should make this an entertaining match.

Scotland are 14/1 to win the Six Nations while Italy has odds at 1000/1. 

Despite the Scottish team having a huge injury list of 19 players for at least the first two games. Glasgow hookers Fraser Brown and George Turner are both injured. So one of the three uncapped hookers – Edinburgh’s Dave Cherry, Leicester’s Jake Kerr and Glasgow’s Grant Stewart – should be on the touchline to fill Stuart McInally’s boots.

While Italy coach Conor O'Shea said: "We’ve won in the last 18 months against Japan and Fiji away and Georgia, but we want to get to the highest level. The level is higher than it was, the highest it has ever been in the Six Nations. But we are better. We have to play at our level of intensity. We want to win, not only for ourselves, but also we want a win for our fans"
