The United States may have Super Bowl fever this week but across much of Europe, people will be more excited about rugby with the Six Nations set to kick off this evening. Things will get underway when France play against Wales at the Stade de France. Owen Farrell's England will play against Ireland in Dublin on Saturday with the fly-half no doubt eager to surpass Johnny Sexton's points haul in the tournament. Farrell has 343 points while Sexton has his nose in front with 357. Both players are still far behind the greatest Six Nations points scorers, however. Ireland's Ronan O'Gara leads the way with 557, ahead of Jonny Wilkinson's 546.
This chart shows players who have scored at least 250 points in the Five/Six Nations.
