Kieran’s Irish pub in Minneapolis will once again be showing this year’s Six Nations Rugby Championship. Many people attending the Six Nations for the first time are pleasantly surprised how competitive and tribal the fans are and yet how good natured everybody behaves. For people uninitiated in the tournament it would be appropriate to give a brief synopsis of the history of the competition.
The Six Nations Rugby Championship is an annual international competition involving six European countries: England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales. The current Champions are England, having won the 2017 Tournament. The winners of the Six Nations Championship are sometimes unofficially referred to in the media as the European Champions or Northern Hemisphere Champions.
