Overview

Born as Home Nations Championship in 1883 it was won by England in the first edition. Scotland won for the first time in 1886 while, in 1888 came the first victory for Ireland and Wales.
In 1910 France was admitted and the name became Five Nations Championship. In 1931 France was excluded and readmitted only after the war in 1947. The first victory for France came in 1954.
In 2000 Italy was admitted and the tournament got its current format and name.

Every year 2 trophies are potentially awarded to the teams playing:
  • The Grand Slam is awarded to a team that wins every match in the tournament
  • The Triple Crown is awarded to the Home Nation that defeats every other Home Nation
