So, in the beginning, it was four countries. Later, France was added, and the name was at the time changed to the Five Nations tournament.
Over the years, rugby became very popular in Italy, so the organisation decided to invite them too. The story goes that Rugby got big in Italy through French students who were studying in Milan, Italy.
The rugby tournament is, as mentioned, played annually. Every year you play once against all countries. If you play at home one year, you play an away match the following year.
This fact is unique, because many other sports are often played away and at home during the same tournament. This is different for the Six Nations tournament.
In the tournament there are several prizes to be won. If one of the countries wins all its matches in an edition of the Six Nations, this is called a Grand Slam.
Furthermore, what is interesting is that cups are awarded to winners of specific competitions. The names of these cups are as follows:.
The most recent winner of the Six Nations Championship is Ireland. Millennium Stadium , Cardiff Referee: Jaco Peyper South Africa.

England France Italy Scotland Wales. England France Ireland Scotland Wales. Eddie Jones has been doing his usual joust with the media taking the limelight off his players to allow them to focus on their game plan.
Owen Farrell will captain the team in the first game of the 6 Nations against Ireland. This game promises to be the match of the first round with England still sore from the memory of being beaten at home in by their first-round rivals.
Scotland are having a great start to as both of their professional teams have made it through to the quarter finals of the European Champions Cup.
Sadly, this has come at a price as injury has been a major issue for the national squad. Finn Russell is playing out of his skin in France at the moment as is Greg Laidlaw.
Special mention to W. Nel who has really hit a high point in his career playing truly great rugby. Wales are in a similar position to Ireland — good November series, quality depth in the squad but are lacking in the back row and at full back.
On the plus side for Wales, with the space in the backrow they have called up Thomas Young, son of retired Welsh legend and dual code international, and current Director of Rugby at Wasps Rugby, David Young.
Thomas has been the shining star in a lacklustre Wasps team this year and a call up to the national squad is long overdue. Italy, as always, are the team that is expected to end up carrying that wooden spoon at the end of the year.
Benetion Treviso more than Zebre, but as a whole the standard has improved. Sadly though, Italy are missing their touch of magic in Matteo Minozzi who is out due to injury.
Minozzi, who was nominated for player of the tournament last season, will be such a huge loss. Saying that though, Brunel is trying to bring in some structure and consistency.
This is being helped by teams like Racing 92 and Toulose preforming well in both the Top 14 and the European Champions Cup playing a great style of French rugby.
This is boosted when you have a player and captain like Guilhm Guirado and try scoring wingers like Maxime Medard and Yoann Huget.
France will be a real danger team in this tournament. The French do have some issues in the squad missing the likes of Teddy Thomas on the wing.
The leadership circle has issues trying to keep discipline in check especially with Mathieu Bastareaud, who has already served a 6 week ban this season for a ridiculous shoulder charge on a player in a ruck.
His consistent performances for Ulster the past six months have been nothing short of heroic. He came into the English squad in November and just kept raising his standards.
He may not start against Ireland but expect to see him perform in this tournament. Another Newcastle Falcon, Gary should play a big role in the Scottish set up with the likes of former captain John Barclay missing due to a long-term injury.
His strength in contact and dominance over the ball in rucks with great defence makes him an overall threat to any of the nations.
His back story is amazing but so are his skills. He controls the game perfectly and has a very accurate boot when he is under pressure.
He is having a stellar season with Toulose at the moment and I can see him shining in the 6Nations this year. Wales have been quiet and building these past four years waiting for their chance and this would be the perfect spring board for them.
