Everything That You Need to Know about the 6 Nations Rugby Championship
The 2016 Six Nations Rugby Championship is the 17th series of the annual rugby union championship of the northern hemisphere. The tournament is also called the 2016 RBS 6 Nations due to sponsorship reasons (since the tournament is sponsored by the Royal Bank of Scotland).
The 6 Nations Rugby Championship is being contested between France, England, Italy, Wales, Scotland, and the defending champions Ireland. This is currently the 122nd edition of this tournament, which includes the previous incarnations of the competition such as the Five Nations Championship and Home Nations Championship.
The Current State of the Competition
As of now, England and France seem to be the two who are in red hot form. They are the favourites to contest the final of the tournament. It seems that England is all set to make a name for themselves under the guidance of Eddie Jones. The coach is integrating all the youngsters carefully into the lineup.
And how can we forget George Kruis, the main man of the team. Not many saw him as the first choice but Kruis has taken on the challenge put forth by his coach to improve more than anyone.
France, on the other hand, seems to be the same as they were in the last few years. They have a new team with a new coach, and while they may be making some real progress, the pundits believe they are in for a difficult time ahead. Let’s not forget Wales, the pretournament favourites. They’ve done well so far with a win and a draw. Wales are still pretty much in the tournament and they have an upcoming game against France which will definitely be a match that decides the fate of these two early on in the competition.
Currently, these three are the ones we need to watch out for, while the others, including Italy, Scotland, and Ireland are rather facing a difficult time as they are struggling to hit the ground running.
