Who will win the Six Nations 2019?

Mar 13, 2019


England, Wales and Ireland head into the final weekend of the Six Nations all dreaming of winning the championships – but only one team will get to lift the Championship Trophy.

With Wales currently sitting pretty top of the table, aiming to beat Ireland to also claim a Grand Slam, England face Scotland at Twickenham, hoping they’ll be the ones lifting the trophy come 6pm on Saturday night.

Here’s what could happen…

We’ve worked out all the possible permutations, so you don’t have to!

How England can win
  • England will be crowned champions if they defeat Scotland and Ireland beat Wales
  • England beating Scotland, with Wales and Ireland drawing, would also see England top the table
How Wales can win
  • If Wales beat Ireland, they’ll be crowned champions
  • If Wales and England finish tied on 20 points (which will happen if Wales win and England win with added bonus points) Wales will still be crowned champions due to Grand Slam winners automatically being awarded 3 bonus points
  • If England were to lose to Scotland, then a draw between Wales and Ireland would be enough for Wales to top the group
How Ireland can win
  • One of the least likely outcomes (but still possible), if Ireland were to beat Wales and England lose to Scotland, then Ireland will be crowned Six Nations Champions

The good news is you’ll be able to watch all the action for yourself this Saturday with all matches being shown live on TV. The schedule is as follows:

Italy vs France, 12:30 (ITV)
Wales vs Ireland, 14:45 (BBC)
England vs Scotland, 17:00 (ITV)
