The Six Nations Championship is the world’s oldest Rugby championship. Its origins date back to 1882 all though it was a rather different championship at that time. The Six Nations is the successor to the Five Nations Championship (1910–31 and 1947–99) which in turn succeeded the Home Nations Championship (1883–1909 and 1932–39).

After starting out as a championship between the Home Nations, it became the Five Nations when France joined the competition in 1910. Suggestions that the championship wasn’t offering a high enough level of competition began during the England and France dominance of the 1990’s.  Asking Italy to join the championship for 2000 rectified the issue.  The Six Nations Championship was born. Italy however is yet to leave its mark on championships. To date their best finish is fourth in 2007.

If a team wins all its games, they are said to have won a ‘Grand Slam’. Victory by any Home Nation over the other three Home Nations is a ‘Triple Crown’.

Manufactured from satin touch 100% cotton. The Vintage 6 Nations T-Shirt features heritage crests of the six competing nations. Also featuring on this garment us herringbone detail on the vents and velvet tape on the neck opening. In addition Ellis Rugby branding features on the arm.

The Vintage 6 Nations T-Shirt is available in sizes S – 2XL.

Please note this T-Shirt is not a licensed product, nor is it a playing shirt. It is inspired by the national heroes who have played the wonderful game of Rugby Football.
