The top international tournament in the Northern Hemisphere rugby calendar, and one of the foremost tournaments in world rugby, the Six Nations offers some of the greatest international rugby rivalries and match action, so catch up on the latest results, check out the upcoming fixtures, or sit back and enjoy our articles on the Six Nations.
Scotland and England have provided some memorable fixtures over the years, but both teams contested the first rugby football international in 1871, shortly after the founding of the Rugby Football Union earlier in the year. Join us as we take a look at the game, and the impact it had on the growing sport.
The 1973 incarnation of the then Five Nations competition is different. Something happened that is very unlikely, indeed virtually impossible, to ever happen again. Join us as we take a look at how the tournament unfolded and it's unexpected climax.

Join us as we take a look at the key areas that defined the outcome of the game.
A great display of defensive resilience and counter-attacking rugby brought Scotland their first opening day victory in the competition for over 10 years. Capitalising on their strengths and Ireland's weaknesses, they were able to deliver a win that many in Scotland will feel has been a long time coming.
Josef Schmidt is one of the great thinkers of the game, and his tactical acumen has guided Ireland to one of, if not their greatest period of history. Two Six Nations championships and their first ever victory over the All Blacks has surely cemented his place as the greatest coach Ireland have ever had.
The first player to reach 50 caps, as well as earning himself the nickname 'Monsieur Rugby', Jean Prat is arguably one of the greatest players of all time. His arrival onto the international scene was a large part of France's rise from a second rate side to one of the commanding nations on the international stage in the 1950s.
