England won the Six Nations Championship 2020. Although Eddie Jones’ side lost against France in Paris on the opening weekend, they recovered to win their next four matches. Les Bleus, meanwhile, were beaten by Scotland in the final match before the tournament was postponed due to the pandemic. England and France ended the Six Nations 2020 level on 18 points, with four wins and one defeat, but the former claimed the Championship due to their superior points difference.
Last year’s Women’s Six Nations was also won by England. The Red Roses were the only team able to play all five of their scheduled matches due to the pandemic, and Simon Middleton’s side won each of them. England secured a second successive Grand Slam with a 54-26 defeat of Italy in Parma on 1 November. They will hope to maintain that form this year, with Rugby World Cup 2021 coming into view.
