Every Six Nations squad has been announced this week

THE SIX NATIONS IS RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER and this week all six teams in the spring tournament have named their squads for it.

There have been some notable exclusions and inclusions in the teams named this week.

For example, England's new head coach Steve Borthwick has left out Billy Vunipola, Jonny May and Jack Nowell, while Scotland have called up Munster's Ben Healy this week.

Ireland and Andy Farrell have named a strong squad that includes the likes of the injured Johnny Sexton and Tadgh Furlong.

These are a number of examples and there are many more surprises ahead of the 4th February start date.

Here is every full squad from England, Wales, Italy, Ireland, Scotland, and France.
