When was the tournament first played?

Formerly called the Home Nations, the tournament dates back to 1995 when only four teams took part England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

France joined in the 1998-99 seasons, making it the Five Nations, with Spain replacing Ireland for the next two seasons,

The first Six Nations was in the 2001-02 seasons when Ireland rejoined and Italy replaced Spain in 2007 - bringing it in line with the men's competition.

Has Scotland ever won the Six Nations?

While Scotland hasn't won the Six Nations, they have won the Home Nations competition that predated it. In fact, not only did they win in 1998 - they were undefeated, winning the Grand Slam and Triple Crown.

England are by far the most successful team in all formats of the competition, having won 19 of the 28 tournaments to date - including 16 Grand Slams.

France have won six titles, Ireland two, with Spain and Italy not having a win between them.
