Six Nations – Some Interesting Facts…

  • Although the name has changed a couple of times, this is the world’s oldest rugby championship, starting in 1882.
  • The tournament has only been called off or cut short 14 times, this was due to war or political unrest between participating countries.
  • The current trophy was introduced in 2015. It took 200 hours to make and is made from 7 kilograms of silver.
  • The trophy is traditionally filled with Champagne, but Champagne is corrosive to the metal so it had to be plated with gold on the inside!
