sixnations The 2018 Six Nations were won by Ireland, breaking the run of England who had taken the title out for two years in a row.

Ireland put in a dominating performance, winning all five matches through their campaign. England fell away, only winning two matches and finishing fourth ahead of lowly Italy, who for the second year in a row didn’t win a game.

The Italians managed to improve their for-and-against from -151 in 2017 to -111 in 2018, but it doesn’t say much.

Wales and Scotland were moderately successful, winning three games a piece, but couldn’t keep up with Ireland, while France finished fourth with two wins, only ahead of England on for-and-against.

The 2019 fixtures are yet to be announced, however, for reference, here were the dates and venues used during 2018.
