The 6 Nations Committee have announced that they will be including bonus points for the first time in 2017. Here are my thoughts on that announcement.
First up here is a link to the announcement and the key points are:
- It’s based on the Rugby World Cup or Aviva Premiership/Pro12 system not the Top14/Super Rugby system.
- It applies to the 6 Nations, Women’s 6 Nations and Under 21 6 Nations.
- It’s only a trail that will be reviewed at the end of the season.
- There is an extra 3 bonus points for a Grand Slam.
Watch the video for my thoughts on all of this.
Let me know your thoughts on bonus points in the 6 Nations below and if there is something about rugby you would like my thoughts on please just ask.
