2024 Six Nations Championship

The 2024 Six Nations Championship (known as the Guinness Men's Six Nations for sponsorship reasons) is a rugby union competition taking place in February and March 2024, featuring the men's national teams of England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales. It is the 130th season of the competition (including its incarnations as the Home Nations Championship and the Five Nations Championship), but the 25th since it expanded to become the Six Nations Championship in 2000. It started on 2 February 2024 with a Friday night match between France and Ireland, and is scheduled to end with France against England on 16 March.[1] France are playing their home fixtures away from their normal venue, the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, as the stadium is being prepared for use in the 2024 Summer Olympics later in the year.[2]

Table ranking rules[10]

  • Four points are awarded for a win.
  • Two points are awarded for a draw.
  • A bonus point is awarded to a team that scores four or more tries, or loses by seven points or fewer. If a team scores four or more tries, and loses by seven points or fewer, they are awarded both bonus points.
  • Three bonus points are awarded to a team that wins all five of their matches (a Grand Slam). This ensures that a Grand Slam winning team would top the table with at least 23 points, as there would otherwise be a scenario where a team could win all five matches with no bonus points for a total of 20 points and another team could win four matches with bonus points and lose their fifth match while claiming one or more bonus points giving a total of 21 or 22 points.
  • Tiebreakers
    • If two or more teams are tied on table points, the team with the better points difference (points scored less points conceded) is ranked higher.
    • If the above tiebreaker fails to separate tied teams, the team that scores the higher number of total tries (including penalty tries) in their matches is ranked higher.
    • If two or more teams remain tied after applying the above tiebreakers then those teams will be placed at equal rank; if the tournament has concluded and more than one team is placed first then the title will be shared between them.
