It can seem like there is always a rugby tournament of some kind happening in the world, and sometimes it is hard to keep them all straight. You may have heard of Rugby 7’s, 6 Nations, Rugby World Cup, Super Rugby or Pan Am tournaments to name a few.
Currently, the 6 Nations tournament is happening – a 15 a side competition between England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Whales that dates back to 1883. This tournament is known as the ‘premiere exhibition of rugby to watch in the northern hemisphere’.
If you can’t stream a game, watching the highlights on YouTube is pretty amazing too. Watch for players amazing ball handling skills, how they are constantly looking for the opening, and how they always know where their teammates are on the pitch. Of course, most of the tries shown on a highlight reel are spectacular to watch as well!
