New bonus points scheme for Six Nations

January 10th, 2013 by · No Comments · Features

The Six Nations countries are reportedly considering a proposal to include a bonus-points system in future tournaments. The world’s oldest international championship is the only major tournament not to include bonus points for scoring four tries or losing by a margin of seven points or less as in the World Cup and the southern hemisphere’s Rugby Championship.

The Six Nations member unions have long resisted change, insisting that the long history and success of the tournament were proof that following modern benchmarks was not necessary. However, according to the Observer, a consultation paper has been prepared for the six countries to consider bringing the competition in line with world standards.
