The Six Nations returned in Dublin on Saturday as Ireland thrashed Italy 50-17 in what was due to be a Round Three clash played on March 7.

Hugo Keenan bagged a debut brace, with fellow newcomer Will Connors also on the score sheet.

CJ Stander, Johnny Sexton, Bundee Aki and Dave Heffernan all crossed too, with Edoardo Padovani and Paolo Garbisi finishing for the Italians.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of the Six Nations' return....

How many games are left in the Six Nations 2020?

Three.

Super Saturday on October 31 kicks off with Wales vs Scotland, then Italy host England and France meet Ireland in the evening.

Who can win the Six Nations 2020?

Ireland, England and France can all still win heading into Super Saturday.

The Irish are one point ahead of England and France and while the big ask of a bonus point win in Paris will guarantee them the championship, a narrower victory may not cut it as England go to Rome trailing by a points difference of 23.

Which other games are on this weekend?

All the other Six Nations teams are preparing this weekend. Scotland face Georgia at Murrayfield on Friday night and France host Wales in Cardiff on Saturday.

On Sunday, England were supposed to be playing the Barbarians, although that match has now been called off after breaches off Covid-19 protocols from a number of Barbarians players.
