Six Nations 2020

Rugby Six Nations

England, Wales, Ireland, France, Scotland and Italy compete every year for the prestigious championship trophy. Originally formed as the Home Nations Championship in 1883, the competition has grown over the years and became its current format in 2000 when Italy joined the Five Nations.

 

What prizes are involved?

 


Aside from the grand prize for the Six Nation Championship, there are numerous little battles between sides for different trophies. The main goal for any aspiring champion is to secure a Grand Slam - winning a championship without dropping a single point. Since the inception of the Six Nations this has happened on eight separate occasions with Wales boasting the most in the modern era with three.

 

The Triple Crown involves Ireland, Wales, Scotland and England and is a homage to the Home Nations. Winning all home nations matches will see a team secure the Triple Crown. Ireland currently lead the way on this front in the Six Nations with four. Following Grand Slams and Triple Crown comes a series of trophies contested between teams. The Calcutta Cup pits England and Scotland against each other, the Millennium Trophy is between England and Ireland, the Centenary Quaich is held between Ireland and Scotland while France and Italy play for the Giuseppe Garibaldi Trophy.

 

The starting date of the tournament is the 1st of February, so enjoy and we will look forward to seeing you down at Shopping Center Puerto Rico where there will be plenty of places with large screens and a great atmoshpere for you to watch the game, whilst enjoying a bite to eat and a refreshing drink.
