Table ranking rules

  • Four points were awarded for a win.
  • Two points were awarded for a draw.
  • A bonus point was awarded to a team that scored four or more tries in a match or loses a match by seven points or fewer. If a team scored four tries in a match and loses by seven points or fewer, they were awarded both bonus points.
  • Three bonus points were awarded to a team that wins all five of their matches (a Grand Slam). This ensured that a Grand Slam winning team would top the table with at least 23 points – a team could lose a match but still win two bonus points and win the other four matches with four try bonus points for a maximum of 22 points.
  • Tiebreakers
    • If two or more teams were tied on match points, the team with the better points difference (points scored less points conceded) were ranked higher.
    • If the above tiebreaker failed to separate tied teams, the team that scored the higher number of total tries in their matches were ranked higher.
    • If two or more teams remained tied for first place at the end of the championship after applying the above tiebreakers, the title would be shared between them.

FixturesEdit

The fixtures were announced on 16 May 2017. The first game of the championship was a Friday night game between France and Wales.[3]

Notes:

  • This was the highest-scoring draw in international rugby history at 76 total points scored.
  • This was the first time England had conceded a try bonus point in the Six Nations; they became the final team to do so since bonus points were introduced in 2017.
  • Scotland retained the Calcutta Cup; this was the first time since 1984 they had done so, and the first time since 1989 they had not lost to England at Twickenham (the 1989 match was also a draw).
  • The 24-point half-time deficit (and 31-point deficit after 30 minutes) Scotland turned around, was the largest comeback for a draw in international rugby history, beating their own previous record against Wales in 2001.
  • With Jonny May's try in the 31st minute, England earned the fastest bonus point try in the Six Nations, beating the previous record they set against Italy the previous week.
  • Scotland's six tries were the most they had ever scored in a match at Twickenham.
