Wales will play France on a Friday night at the Millennium Stadium in next year's RBS 6 Nations, after the fixtures for the 2010 championship were announced.
Tournament organisers have decided to repeat their Friday night experiment after deeming this year’s groundbreaking fixture a major success.
France’s thrilling 21-16 victory over Wales in Paris drew the largest television audience of the championship in the host country and the second highest average audience of all 15 games in the tournament.
Next season’s Friday night game is scheduled for round three of the competition on February 26.
The following day, Italy will host Scotland and Ireland play England in back-to-back fixtures.
Grand Slam champions Ireland open the 2010 RBS 6 Nations and the defence of their title against Italy in Dublin on February 6.
The tournament will climax in another ‘Super Saturday’, with Wales hosting Italy, Ireland against Scotland and England travelling to France for an evening kick-off.
