What is Guinness Six Nations?
Guinness Six Nations, also known as the Six Nations Championship, is an annual rugby tournament between England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, France, and Italy. Over five weeks, each team plays one match against all other teams, with home field advantage for each matchup alternating every year. Teams earn four points for a win, two for a draw, and zero for a loss. Teams can earn bonus points for scoring four tries in a match or if they lose by seven or fewer points. At the end of the five weeks, the team with the most points wins the championship.
When did the Six Nations Championship start?
That depends on how you look at it. Ultimately, the tournament is the successor to the Home Nations Championship, which started in 1883. At that point, it was an annual rugby tournament between England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland. In 1910, France was added to the tournament and it became known as the Five Nations Championship. It stayed that way until 2000, when the addition of Italy made it Six Nations.
Who won Six Nations last year?
Ireland won the tournament for its 15th time after going undefeated through all five weeks. Last year’s win was also Ireland’s 13th Triple Crown (defeating every other team from the original Home Nations tournament), and its fourth Grand Slam (defeating every other team in the Six Nations Championship.
