The 2007 RBS 6 Nations Championship is the eighth series of the rugby union Six Nations Championship to be held since the competition expanded in 2000 to include Italy. Before 1910, the competition was the Home Nations and was contested by England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. After the inclusion of France it was known as Five Nations Championship. Unlike many rugby union competitions, the Six Nations has not adopted a bonus point system. Match winners receive two points, with one for a draw and none for a loss. The first tiebreaker is point differential. Image File history File links Current_sport. ...

The competition is played annually over five weekends predominantly in February and March. Each of the six participating nations plays each other once which results in 15 matches over the course of the tournament, with home advantage alternating each year. If a team wins all five matches on their way to tournament victory then that team is also allocated the ‘Grand Slam’ title as well as the championship.

In the build up to the competition, Ireland were being tipped as favourites for the Grand Slam, having played well during the Autumn Tests. However, despite having started strongly with a win against Wales, they lost to France 20-17 in a thrilling and historic[1] encounter at Croke Park. In turn Ireland went on to crush England, who in turn beat France, leading to a 3 way tie and no nation available for the grand slam. Croke Park (Irish: Páirc an Chrócaigh) in Dublin, Ireland is the largest sports stadium in Ireland and the principal stadium and headquarters of the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA), Irelands biggest sporting organisation. ...


Round 3 of the competition saw Italy win their first ever away match in the Six Nations. Scotland conceded three tries in the first six minutes (all converted), and Italy went on to secure an historic 37-17 victory. In the same round, England's defeat by Ireland at Croke Park 43-13 marked their worst result ever in the history of the tournament, both in number of points received and in points difference (30 points).

Notes and references

  1. ^ This was the first rugby match ever at Croke Park. Before 2005, the constitution of the Gaelic Athletic Association, which owns Croke Park, prohibited "foreign games" from being played on the ground. In practice, this ban was applied only to football (soccer) and the rugby codes, as the stadium has been used for matches in International Rules football (a hybrid between Australian Rules and Gaelic football) and American football.
  2. ^ Mike Catt captained England in their fourth game against France which Vickery missed due to injury.
  3. ^ Regular captain Fabien Pelous was out injured for France's first two matches against Italy and Ireland, with vice-captain Ibañez elevated to the captaincy for both matches.
  4. ^ France robbed of skipper Pelous. RugbyRugby.com (February 20, 2007). Pelous' injury ultimately ruled him out of the entire 2007 competition, and Ibañez was announced as his replacement.
  5. ^ Lansdowne Road, Ireland's traditional home, is being redeveloped and is expected to be back in use by 2009.
  6. ^ Paul O'Connell captained Ireland in their second match against France, which O'Driscoll missed due to injury.
  7. ^ The regular Scotland captain, Jason White, is recovering from a serious knee injury and will not play in this season's competition.
  8. ^ Thomas to deputise for injured captain. Welsh Rugby Union (14 March 2007). Jones has been ruled out of Wales' final match against England due to a broken wrist. Gareth Thomas has been named captain for the match, in which he will equal Gareth Llewellyn for most caps by a Wales player.
