2024 Guinness Six Nations Guide: Squad Tracker, Fixtures, Where To Watch

The 2024 Guinness Six Nations will kick off Feb. 2 in Marseille, when reigning Grand Slam champion Ireland and last year’s runner-up, France, clash. 

The competition consists of five rounds, where every country plays each other once in a round-robin style competition. 

If a team goes undefeated, it will be crowned “Grand Slam” champion; it is, however, possible to win the tournament without going undefeated, in which case, the team still will win the title but will not be classed as a Grand Slam team. 

Who Has Won The Most Guinness Six Nations Titles? 

England leads the way in terms of total titles, dating back to the Home Nations Championship (not including France and Italy) with 29 titles, 10 of which are shared.

England won its first title in the championship’s first edition in 1883. England’s most recent title came in 2020, and its most recent Grand Slam was in 2016. England has won 13 Grand Slams in total. 

Wales is second with 28 titles, including 11 shared titles. Wales won for the first time in 1893, and its most recent one was in 2021. Wales' most recent Grand Slam came in 2019. Wales has won 12 Grand Slams in total. 

France is third with 18 titles, 10 of which are shared. France won its first title in 1954 as a split title with England and Wales. France won its first outright title in 1959 and most recent title (and Grand Slam) in 2022. France has won 12 Six Nations Grand Slams in total. 

Ireland came in fourth with 15 titles, eight of which were shared. Ireland won its first title in 1912 as a split title with England. It would take until 1935 for Ireland to win its first outright title, and 18 years later, the Irish claimed their first Grand Slam (1948). Their most recent Grand Slam came in the 2023 Guinness Six Nations. Ireland has won four Grand Slams in total. 

Scotland has the fifth-most Six Nations titles with 14, eight of which are shared titles. Scotland won its first title in 1886, which was shared with England, before winning its first outright title in 1891. Scotland’s most recent title came in 1999. Scotland has won three Grand Slams in total.

Italy is the newest addition to the championship, joining in 2000, and has yet to win a title. Italy’s best finish in the event came in 2007 and again in 2013 when it finished fourth. Italy has beaten every team in the championship except England, which they remain winless against in 30 meetings. 

Who Are The Favorites To Win The 2024 Six Nations? 

Ireland and France are the bookies’ favorites, with England a little behind. Scotland, Wales and Italy are not favored. 

  • France to win: 5/4
  • Ireland to win: 13/8
  • England to win: 11/2
  • Scotland to win: 12/1
  • Wales to win: 18/1
  • Italy to win: 250/1
