Follow the latest updates from the Six Nations clash between Wales and Scotland as ‘Super Saturday’ gets under way with a record-breaking affair at Parc y Scarlets.
It will be a day to remember for Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones as the lock makes his 149th international appearance to break Richie McCaw’s record of Test appearances, with this being his 140th outing for his country on top of his nine Lions appearances. Wales fans will also look to debutant flanker Shane Lewis-Hughes, having been talked up by the skipper himself as one to watch for the future.
Scotland will be a significantly more dangerous proposition today though with the enigmatic Finn Russell back at fly-half after resolving his differences with head coach Gregor Townsend, with the Scots out to claim a rare away victory that could secure them a top-three finish in the Championship. Follow the live updates below.

ENGLAND WIN SIX NATIONS
We’ve spoken to the England camp in Rome in the wake of their triumph, with the celebrations well underway after they were crowned Six Nations champions for the first time since 2017.
Having led England to his first major trophy as captain, Owen Farrell said: “It’s a massive achievement for us as a group to win the Guinness Six Nations in the strangest year and circumstances.
“We’ve worked really hard in training the past few weeks to get ready for the Italy game, we knew what we had to do and we kept our focus and got the result.
“This is a great group of players, we really think we can continue to get better and achieve more for England. We’re turning our attentions now to the Autumn Nations Cup, we want consistent success and we’re working hard to be better in each and every game.
“We know how difficult things are for everyone at home at the moment and we’ve been saying all through our training camps how we want to do our bit to make people smile. Hopefully we’ve done that today and we’ll do more of the same throughout the autumn.”

France 35-27 Ireland: Bonus-point victory in Paris not enough to prevent England from claiming first championship in three years following their win over Italy
80 mins: France 35-27 Ireland
Jacob Stockdale scores a solo try of his own as he sweeps up lose ball and races over. Sexton converts, but it’s all in vain…

TRY FOR IRELAND!
80 mins: France 35-20 Ireland
The ball is knocked on by the French and Ireland will have a late scrum, but it’s going to be to no avail. We know where this one’s going.
76 mins: France 35-20 Ireland
The game is really loose now, with neither side able to hold onto the ball as they try to force it. Ireland manage to win a penalty to relieve pressure brought on by an excellent up-and-under, and Sexton finds touch on the French 10m line.
72 mins: France 35-20 Ireland
Now that was a joy to watch! Ntamack takes the ball to the line after another Irish scrum collapses, and he chips over the defensive line to regather and weave his way towards the try line, before committing Stockdale and passing left to Virimi Vakatawa to score France’s fourth.
They’ve got the bonus point, but they need another 16 points from here to prevent England from winning the title.
71 mins: France 33-20
TRY FOR FRANCE!
69 mins: France 28-20 Ireland
Another lineout goes awry and France eventually win back the ball to go on the attack, although they kick for Keenan to collect and he does well to send it back down-field with interest. Bouthier gathers the ball and kicks down the middle, but it rolls over the try line and is dotted down for the 22 drop-out.
66 mins: France 28-20 Ireland
Bouthier takes a supreme catch against Conway as they both challenge for the ball, but the Frenchman is isolated and Ireland win the penalty. Sexton sends it into the 22m deep, only for the Ireland lineout to falter once again – that’s three in a row now – and let France off the hook.

If kids and families choose the in-person option they will register for a set time to join others on a 1-mile course through Pioneer Park. The Saturday Live Superhero run is not a competitive run but a fun run for kids and families to get outside and celebrate back to school. We encourage kids and other family members to take part in the Saturday Live Superhero run together and have some fun either running, walking, skipping, or strolling along the 1-mile course. Health and safety guidelines will be adhered.
If kids and families choose the virtual Saturday Live Superhero option they can complete their 1-mile course whenever and wherever they like on Saturday, September 19th. Each participant will receive a Saturday Live Superhero T-Shirt if registered by September 11th. So register early to secure your T-shirt size. The cost of registration is $15 per participant. In addition, fun prizes will be provided for participants and schools.
To assist schools in fundraising for the needs they have, the Education Foundation for Billings Public Schools will be partnering with teams, clubs, and PTAs to provide an online option for the community to give to designated needs to directly benefit students this school year. To donate and support needs in our schools, please visit www.efbps.org.
We are excited to adapt in this ever-changing world to provide a safe, fun way for our students, families, and community to celebrate and support our schools.
