2024 Six Nations Championship: What You Need To Know

Rugby

The roar of the crowd, the clash of boots on turf, the iconic jerseys unfurling in the wind – the 2024 Six Nations Championship is almost upon us! Mark your calendars for February 2nd, when France and Ireland kick off another chapter in this epic annual battle for rugby supremacy.

Recap

Last year saw Ireland reclaim the glory, raising the coveted Grand Slam trophy. France, despite valiant efforts, finished second, hungry for redemption in their own backyard. Scotland threatened a title challenge, while England and Wales stumbled, seeking to rediscover their roar. Italy, ever the spirited underdogs, fought valiantly but finished at the foot of the table.

But the World Cup has rewritten the narrative. Ireland and France, heavily fancied in the fall's tournament, suffered quarter-final heartbreak. Scotland missed the knockout stages again, while England and Wales found success on a kinder side of the draw, only to fall short in the later rounds.

Now, they have a chance to write a new chapter. This Six Nations is about redemption, resurrection, and proving doubters wrong. Can Ireland defend their crown? Will France conquer on home soil? Can Scotland break the Grand Slam drought? Will England and Wales reclaim their place among the elite? And can Italy upset the giants once again?
