Women's 6 Nations

Carl Mullen signs rugby ball for small boy

Introduction

The Women's Six Nations Championship is run at the same time as the men’s competition; February through to March. The competition is also contested between the six elite European women’s national teams.

The tournament started as a 4 country home nations competition which then became a 5 nations with Spain instead of Italy. The participating nations remained unchanged for several seasons until 2007, when Spain was replaced with Italy.

The tournament has been dominated by two countries with France winning three Championships to England’s five. The 2009 Championship did see Wales break England’s 11-year Triple Crown monopoly after Non Evans’ last-minute penalty secured a dramatic 16-15 victory. That was the first time Wales had ever beaten England and Ireland took a leaf out of their book by securing their maiden win over France – both Celtic nations would go on to record their highest ever finishes. Wales’ defeat to France though meant England, for the fourth straight year, lifted the Championship thanks to their huge points difference.
