RBS Six Nations 2023 Odds

Six Nations Rugby Odds

The Six Nations takes place each year with six European rugby union nations taking each other on in a round-robin style tournament.

Held every year over February and March, England, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, France and Italy all take part in the Six Nations. Each country plays each other once and the team with the most points at the end is deemed the winner.

The host countries are alternated every year so if Ireland host France this year, France will host Ireland next year. Home advantage is huge and can make or break a Six Nations tournament.

The Six Nations dates back to 1883 when it was known as the Home Nations. It was contested between England, Ireland, Wales and Scotland, with the latter being the dominant side.

In 1910 it became the Five Nations as France joined. It took until 1954 for France to finally finish top, and this was alongside England and Wales. This carried on until 1999, when Scotland won the very last Five Nations.

In 2000, it finally became the Six Nations with Italy joining the competition. It didn’t play out as they would have hoped, with Italy winning the Wooden Spoon in each of their first three years. This is an award given to a team that finishes last…

Six Nations History

The first nation to win the Six Nations was England, who held on to their crown again the following year. France then took it in 2002 and was the first side to win the Grand Slam, winning every game that year.

In terms of the most successful side in Six Nations history, it is a very close one. England is leading the way with seven wins, the most recent of which came in 2020.

Wales takes second place with six wins, last winning the Championship in 2021, whilst France who hadn’t won it since 2010, bagged the Grand Slam in 2022. Then Ireland is close behind with four wins, their last in 2018.

Ireland’s Ronan O’Gara holds the Six Nations record for the most points scored with a total of 557 points for his side. Jonny Wilkinson is the record holder for the most points scored in a single match. Against Italy in 2001, he racked up 35 points.

2019 was a brilliant year for Wales, as not only did then win the competition, but also the Grand Slam. They beat everyone in fairly convincing style and it put them in good stead for the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

In 2022 a superb French team absolutely stormed through the competition, winning their first Grand Slam since 2010. It was an emotional night in Paris as the French overpowered England, pipping Ireland to the winning Six Nations post.

2023 Six Nations

On the back of some crazy results in 2022, it’s time to look ahead at the Six Nations odds for 2023.

Italy notched up their first win against Wales in Cardiff, France won the Grand Slam and Ireland came close to finish second. Scotland did well and have upped their game recently, however, England missed a couple of important wins leaving them mid-table at the end of 2022.

With the Rugby World Cup 2023 next up on the cards in France, it’s all to play for as our six teams once again head into battle.
