2007 World Cup

A bonus points system will be used in this season’s RBS 6 Nations Championship.

The Six Nations Council announced bonus points will be trialled in the Six Nations, women’s Six Nations and Under-20 Six Nations tournaments, and then reviewed.

The Council said it had taken the decision “to encourage and reward try-scoring and attacking play.”

The first game of this season’s Six Nations is Scotland against Ireland on Feb. 4.
