The 6 nations championship is one of many events in the international Rugby Union calendar. It is an annual competition between six European sides: England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales.
In the current format, each team plays every other team once, with home field advantage alternating from one year to the next. The winners of the Six Nations Championship are also known as the European Champions.
