    The 2017 Six Nations Championship, known as the 2017 RBS 6 Nations because of the tournament's sponsorship by The Royal Bank of Scotland,
    is the 18th series of the Six Nations Championship, the annual northern hemisphere rugby union championship.
    It is being contested by defending champions England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales. Including the competition's previous iterations
    as the Home Nations Championship and Five Nations Championship, it is the 123rd edition of the tournament.[1]
    For the first time, the 2017 tournament is using the bonus point system common to most other professional rugby union tournaments.[2]
    As well as the standard four points for a win or two for a draw, a team scoring four or more tries during a match will receive an additional league table point, as will a team losing by 7 or fewer points.[2] Additionally, to ensure that a team winning all of its five matches (a Grand Slam) will also win the Championship, three bonus points will be awarded for this achievement.[2][3]
