Irb6nations
Saturday sees the start of the 6 Nations Rugby Championship and Madrid’s bars offer a great chance to watch the games, meet up with rugby supporters of all the teams taking part and, of course, to have a few beers (or Guinnesses)! The first weekend sees Ireland v Italy (2.30 p.m. Madrid time) and England v Wales (4.30 p.m.) on Saturday with Scotland v France on Sunday at 4 p.m.

Instead of pointing you to a previous post that I wrote (for the 6 nations last year and the World Cup!), I have decided to cut and paste some of the places where you will no doubt find the games going on:
