Updated on Saturday 16 March 2019 by @TVNewsroom

ITV will broadcast live Six Nations 2019 action this afternoon as the fifth and final round of fixtures take place.

Italy host France at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome in the first of three fixtures.

The Italians have an abysmal record against the French, and have lost 18 of the 20 fixtures to have taken place since the year 2000.

Last year they were on the wrong end of a 34-17 scoreline at Orange Velodrome in Marseille, and have to look back as far as 2013 for their most recent victory, when they triumphed 23-18 on home soil.

Coverage starts at 12.00pm on ITV and ITV HD, where Jill Douglas will be joined in the studio by Brian O’Driscoll, Gareth Thomas and Maggie Alphonsi.

Sideline reports come from Marco Bortolami and Gabriel Clarke, while match commentary is provided by Miles Harrison and Shane Williams.

Kick-off 12.30pm

The BBC will show Ireland’s visit to Wales from 2.30pm, while ITV airs the final games of the tournament from 4.15pm as England host Scotland.
