January, if we can turn a blind eye to the weather, is actually quite an exciting month. There are so many different events, Chinese New Year and Burns Night to name just two but as we approach the end of the month we have something even more exciting to look forward to… The Six Nations Championship.

 

For those of you who don’t know, The Six Nations Championship is an annual international rugby union competition between the teams of EnglandFranceIrelandItalyScotland, and Wales. The current champions are Wales, who won the 2019 tournament. They also hold the overall record with 39 victories (27 outright and 12 shared) to England's 38 (10 shared victories). England hold the record for the most outright wins with 28. Since the Six Nations era started in 2000, only Italy and Scotland have failed to win the Six Nations title.

 

So who will be crowned the winners in 2020?

 

As it stands at the moment the bookies predict the following table

Five fun facts

The Six Nations is one of the oldest cup competitions in the world. The first tournament was held in 1883

The six nations trophy is crafted from sterling silver and has an estimated value of £55,000. The inside of the trophy was recently plated with gold to protect it from the corrosive properties of champagne!

Irelands Ronan O’Gara is the tournaments highest points scorer with 551 points, while his teammate Brian O’Driscall is the highest try scorer with 25

Prior to 1994, teams equal on match points shared the championship. 1973 was the only year where there was a five way tie with each side winning two matches and losing two
