Sporting Life presents a full guide, fixture list, TV schedule and history for the 2019 Six Nations Championship which takes place between February 1 and March 6.

Ireland came into the 2019 Six Nations as defending champions, having completed the Grand Slam in 2018. But with the World Cup in Japan in September this year, more significance falls on this tournament, as a last chance for each nation to fine tune their squads and tactics.

Added to this, we are set for one of the most competitive and tightest Six Nations campaigns in over a decade, with at least three nations in with a chance of winning the competition.

Here we have the full fixture schedule and table, which will be updated with results and links to full match reports as the campaign unfolds while further down are all the latest odds, squads plus a full history section of past winners.

Six Nations Championship: History

The competition has been known as the Six Nations since 2000, when Italy were added to the competition.

Previous to this, the Tournament was known as the Five Nations, with England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland and France competing between 1940 and 1999.

The original competition actually began in 1883 as the Home Nations, with England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland involved.

Here we look back at all the various trophy winners from previous Six Nations campaigns while we also go through each country's titles overall, including the Five Nations era.

Six Nations History: Past Winners & Trophies

(The Grand Slam is awarded if any nation can win ALL their matches. The Triple Crown is awarded if either England, Wales, Ireland or Scotland can beat ALL the other Home Nations. The Calcutta Cup is awarded for the winner between Scotland and England, the Millennium Trophy for England v Ireland, the Centenary Quaich for Ireland v Scotland, the Giuseppe Garibaldi Trophy for France v Italy (since 2007) and the Auld Alliance Trophy (since 2018) for France v Scotland. Finally, the illustrious Wooden Spoon is for the team that props up the table.

Six Nations Championship: Player of the Championship

The Guinness Six Nations Player of the Championship is one of rugby’s greatest individual accolades, and has been won by a host of the game’s top players.

Each year, a shortlist of players are chosen by an expert panel for the Guinness Player of the Championship award. This list then goes to a public vote, with the winning player announced in the week after Super Saturday, the final weekend.

Ireland have provided the winner of seven of 15 editions so far, with the great Brian O’Driscoll (2006, 2007, 2009) claiming three. The Scottish full-back Stuart Hogg is the only other man to win more than once (2016, 2017).

Ireland’s Tommy Bowe (2010), Paul O’Connell (2015) and Jacob Stockdale (2018) have also won the award.

Four Welshmen have won the accolade with Martyn Williams (2005), Shane Williams (2008), Dan Lydiate (2012) and Leigh Halfpenny (2013) all having been chosen.

England’s Mike Brown (2014) and Italy’s Andrea Masi (2011) have also had the honour of being named the Championship’s best player.
