The 2019 Six Nations

The 2019 Six Nations

The Six Nations kicked off last weekend with England picking up a crucial win away to 2018 champions Ireland. This means that the dream of a Six Nations grand slam (which is when you win all 5 matches) is very much alive for Eddie Jones’ men. We thought we’d dedicate the blog this week to the much-loved tournament, so you know exactly what’s happening going into round 2 this weekend.

The Six Nations is a historic tournament dating back to 1883 when England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales hosted their own Home Nations Championship. The format we know today was formed in 2000 with the addition of Italy (with France being part of proceedings since 1910).

This year’s tournament is the 19th edition of the modern format and after the first round of matches the favourites and holders (Ireland) are no longer in contention for the Grand Slam. In recent years the title has been won by either Ireland or England however Wales would like to feel like they’re in contention for this year’s prize with an impressive 24-19 victory away to France in the opening round. This year’s tournament is particularly important as the Rugby Union World Cup takes place at the back end of the year.
