Six Nations – A Brief History
The iconic rugby event has an interesting history.
From 1871 Scotland and England played matches on a friendly basis for 12 years. It was in 1883 that the then Home International Championships was first held. England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales competed and England won the inaugural title.
France officially joined the competition in 1910 although they’d participated in 4 “Home Nations” tournaments by this time. The tournament changed its name to Five Nations to reflect France’s inclusion. England won the first title in this era.
World Wars 1 and 2 saw the tournament suspended.
France were removed from the list of contenders in 1931 and the event was renamed the Home Nations from 1932-1939. England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales were then its only competitors.
The 1947 Home Nations rugby event became the Five Nations again as France were welcomed back to the tournament. This was the end of Home Nations forever.
In 1999 Scotland were the last team to win the Five Nations trophy.
Remarkably, there was no prize for winning the tournament between 1871 and 1992, the trophy was only introduced in 1993.
Italy joined in 2000 and the name of Six Nations was born. England won the first two Six Nations championships and hold the 2016 title. Italy seem to be trailing in the 2017 competition, can they rally before the end of the RBS Six Nations on the 18th March?
