Six Nations Rugby Previews, Predictions & Betting Tips


Six Nations Rugby


The Six Nations Rugby Championship is the equivalent to the southern hemisphere Rugby Championships. The annual competition involves teams from England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales.

The Home Nations Championship was the first version of the tournament. Played from 1883-1939, this involved teams strictly from the United Kingdom. The competition became the Five Nations in 1910 with the edition of France. The competition became the Six Nations with Italy participating from 2000.

England are the most successful side in the history of the competition capturing the title on 28 occasions. Wales has won the tournament 26 times. Italy and Scotland are the only two teams who have not tasted success in the competition and have yet to win the title.

The Six Nations is one of the oldest and most prestigious trophies in World Rugby. The elusive Grand Slam is a title bestowed on the winner who is able to remain undefeated for the duration of the competition. Ireland are the current champions after winning the tournament in 2018.
