The six teams will play out their remaining games, as England, France, and Ireland are still in contention for the crown. 

Immediately following the completion of the Six Nations, all six squads will join Fiji and Georgia for the first-ever edition of the Autumn Nations Cup. Over the course of four weeks (Nov. 13 – Dec. 6), you'll be able to watch all 16 test matches featuring these eight teams right here on FloRugby, until someone emerges as champion. 

Tournament Structure

The eight teams – England, Wales, Ireland, Georgia, Scotland, France, Italy, Fiji – will be split into two pools of four.

After three rounds of pool play, the top seed from Pool A will play the top seed from Pool B, while the second-placed teams will play each other, the third-placed teams will play each other, and the fourth-placed teams will play each other. 

Pool A:

  • England
  • Wales
  • Ireland
  • Georgia

Pool B:

  • France
  • Scotland
  • Fiji
