Look at that point difference column. Goes to show how hard it is to win a GS. Wouldn't have it any other way though.

6N deffo needs promotion & relegation to 6NB to see if your view is correct.
is there movement between 6NB and 6NC ?

The slams metric stands as a proud erect stallion penis amongst the tiny flaccid medals-for-everyone culture of the other stats.

Ok, most titles might be a semi-on for some.

When you think about it, that table - proof of decades-long consistency and dominance, as befitting the role played by the Anglo-Saxon genetic masters of these islands - is worth more than any individual tournament win or Grand Slam.

Slams are the splattering money shot, nothing else is as remotely important.

I agree, but this is local stuff, heated stuff, this is office-hot money shot splattering, and thus still gets the emotions running high.

True, TBF the team sizes on the pitch should be proportional to the population size. We'd muller you good and proper then.

55 million. Way less than France's 67 million, but weirdly they always escape this comparison

One of the more interesting things there is that if they have backdated bonus points (i.e. counted them before they were introduced in the tournament), then as they have 22 LBPs in 100 games Scotland have only scored 4 tries in a game 7 times. That is pretty awful.

That's pretty shit for Ireland.

2nd on the table but only 4 championships and 2 grand slams. We can thank France for all those chokes in the noughties.

Englands record is similar on the champs front. Very consistent at finishing second though

surely comparing number of professional players per country would be fairer ?
Scotland under performs, face it - and by a long way, else you'd be a lot closer to your Celtic cousins in success rates, instead of being close to Italy where its a minority sport.

Most tries England, yet they still have the reputation of being boring and kicking all the time..

Bullshit, if there's a job going the larger country is going to have more people chasing it.
