Since the Five Nations Championship became the Six Nations in 2000, England have won seven men’s titles — or a third of the tournaments played. France and Wales have won five, while Ireland have won four. Wales have won more men’s Grand Slams (four) than any other nation in that period. England are the most successful team in the overall history of the Championship having enjoyed 29 outright successes and shared the title on a further 10 occasions since that first match in 1882. England have won 13 Grand Slams since the tournament’s inception, one more than Wales.
England won the first Women’s Home Nations Championship in 1996, and have gone on to claim the title a record 16 times in total. On all-but one of those occasions the Red Roses have completed a Grand Slam. France have won the Championship six times (five Grand Slams), while Ireland (twice) are the only other nation to have lifted the women’s Championship since it became the Six Nations in 2002.
