The Six Nations is the premier rugby union competition in the Northern Hemisphere taking place annually in February and March. England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, and Wales play each other once for a chance at the title.
There is a variety of silverware up for grabs throughout the tournament including the Championship Trophy, the Grand Slam, and Triple Crown.
As well as the main event, there are also trophies for individual rivalries such as the Calcutta Cup between England v Scotland and the Millenium Trophy for Wales v England.
The tournament was first played in 1883 as the Home Nations Championship, this included England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales, the four Home Nations of the United Kingdom. In 1910 the tournament then became the Five Nations with the inclusion of France. It would remain in this successful format up to 1999, when Scotland famously lifted the Five Nations trophy. In 2000 the tournament was expanded with the addition of Italy taking the tournament to how we now know it as the Six Nations. There have been calls for expansion and/or promotion and relegation to fit in the so-called second-tier sides of Georgia or Romania but there are no signs of this on the horizon.
In the modern Six Nations era, England is the most successful team with 7 Champions to their name. Italy unfortunately is the least successful team with a rather large 16 Wooden Spoons to their name! The Wooden Spoon is a fictional trophy awarded to the team finishing in last place.
Ireland stand-off and kicker Ronan O'Gara holds the career Championship scoring record with 557 points. Jonny Wilkinson of England, another kicker, currently holds the records for individual points in one match (35 points against Italy in 2001) and in one season with 89 (scored in 2001).
The Championship record for tries is held by another Irish man - Brian O'Driscoll with 26 tries to his name.
England's Cyril Lowe and Scotland's Ian Smith jointly hold the record for tries in a season with a phenomenal 8 (Lowe in 1914, Smith in 1925).
The record for most tries in a match is rather long-standing! Held by Scotsman George Lindsay who scored five tries against Wales in 1887. This is very unlikely to be overtaken as even a hattrick in the modern game of rugby is extremely rare.
Veteran Italian Number 8 Sergio Parisse holds the record for most appearances with 69. Making his debut in 2004 and has as yet to fully retire.
England holds several impressive stats - most points scored by a team in one match - 80 points, against Italy in 2001. Most ever points in a season in 2001 with 229, and most tries in a season with 29.
Wales holds the record for fewest tries conceded during a season in the Six Nations era, conceding only 2 in 5 games in 2008, but the 1977 Grand Slam-winning France team did not concede a single try in their four matches, very impressive defence!
