Six Nations Rugby Tournament History


It can be argued that the Six Nations rugby union championship has its roots back to the late 1800's,  when the teams of England, Scotland Ireland and Wales played a similar tournament then called "Home Nations". The addition of France to the tournament changed it to "Five Nations" although they were ejected from the tournament in 1931, only to be readmitted later. Below is a timeline of the ancestor competitions which eventually led to the current  Six Nations Championship


Home Nations 1883–1909 - England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales
Five Nations 1910–1931 - France joins the competition
Home Nations 1932–1939  - France ejected
Five Nations 1940–1999  - France re-admitted
Six Nations 2000–present  - Italy joins the competition


England won the first competition in 2000  with the following winners in subsequent years:-
