Ireland are the reigning champions, after claiming the Grand Slam and Triple Crown in 2018. Joe Schmidt’s men picked up 26 points in total – 11 more than second-placed Wales.
England, who had been going for their third Six Nations title in a row, ended up finishing a disappointing fifth.
All matches will be played on either Saturday or Sunday, bar one. In Round One – the very first game of the tournament – France host Wales in Paris on Friday night.
