The Six Nations is an international rugby union competition held annually between the teams of England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales.
The competition started out as the Home Nations Championship until France were added in 1910 to become the Five Nations Championship, this was later increased further in 1999 with the addition of Italy.
Wales were the 2019 champions, as well as securing a Grand Slam (won all their matches) and Triple Crown (defeating all of the other home nations).
