England are looking to to defend the title they have won for each of the past two years when they welcome the 2018 champions.

Kick-off is at 2pm with the match aired live on BBC Two.

Faryl's proud dad Tony said: "The Women’s Six Nations rugby is creating lots of interest around the world as Fox Sports from America has partnered up and will be airing the championships to more than 130 territories, stretching to 100 million households.

"Faryl is once again honoured to sing both anthems."

Aged 10, Faryl won 13 awards at the Eisteddfod in Kettering before she performed in several music festivals .

When she starred in the ITV talent show music mogul Simon Cowell described her as “literally one in a million”.

In 2010 she was nominated for two Classical BRIT Awards, becoming the youngest artist ever to receive a double nomination.
