• Six Nations Championship, National Newspaper

    Hey everybody, 

    I want to present you one of the most famous competition in Rugby, the Six Nations Championship. Perhaps you know that in the past the Six Nations championship was named the Home Nations Championship. It was played between the nation of the United Kingdom and Ireland (1883–1909 and 1932–39). Two countries joined this championship: France in 1910 and Italy in 2000.

    The winner is called the “European Champion”. If the Champion has never lost (he cans make a draw) he realises the Grand Slam (in French the Grand Chelem). In 2014, the European Champion was Ireland. The last Grand Slam was realised by Wales in 2012. Wales own also the best winning record with 37 victories in the competition.

    There is also a feminine version of the championship and a junior one (less than 20 years old).  France has won in 2014 in both competition.
