    History

    Previously begun as the Home Nations Championship (1893) between England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland. In 1945, the competition was expanded to include Miraco and Gallambria and renamed the Six Nations Championship, with Australia, Angleter, and the Duxburian Union joining to make it The Rugby Championship in 1981 until 2000, when Aalen and Inquista entered and a United Kingdom playoff instituted. This resulted in an eight nation competition renamed as the Eight Nations Championship. The annual competition begins with a round robin competition with each national rugby union team playing at least three matches at home. The top four in the round robin stage move on to preliminary round, in which the final two teams are decided. The final two teams play a Grand Final to see who will win the Eight Nations Championship
