Table ranking rules

  • Four match points are awarded for a win.
  • Two match points are awarded for a draw.
  • A bonus match point is awarded to a team that scores four or more tries in a match or loses a match by seven points or fewer. If a team scores four tries in a match and loses by seven points or fewer, they are awarded both bonus points.
  • Three bonus match points are awarded to a team that wins all five of their matches (known as a Grand Slam). This ensures that a Grand Slam winning team always tops the table with at least 23 league points – a team can lose a match but still win two bonus points and win the other four matches with four try bonus points for a maximum of 22 league points.
  • Tiebreakers
    • If two or more teams are tied on match points, the team with the better points difference (points scored less points conceded) is ranked higher.
    • If the above tiebreaker fails to separate tied teams, the team that scored the higher number of total tries in their matches is ranked higher.
    • If two or more teams remain tied for first place at the end of the championship after applying the above tiebreakers, the title is shared between them.

Fixtures

The fixtures were announced on 16 May 2017. The first game of the championship was a Friday night game between France and Wales.[1]

Notes:

  • This is this highest scoring draw in international rugby history at 76 total points scored.
  • This was the first time England had conceded a try bonus point in the 6 Nations; they became the final team to do so since bonus points were introduced in 2017.
  • Scotland retain the Calcutta Cup; this was the first time since 1984 they had done so, and the first time since 1989 they had not lost to England at Twickenham (the 1989 match was also a draw).
  • The 24 point half-time deficit (and 31 point deficit after half an hour) Scotland turned around, was the largest comeback for a draw in international rugby history, beating their own previous record against Wales in 2001.
  • Jonny May’s 31st minute try became the fastest bonus point try in the 6 Nations, beating England’s own record they set against Italy the previous week.
  • Scotland’s 6 tries were the most they had ever scored at Twickenham.
