France’s XV, with 63% success in 23 editions, is the hottest spot in the history of the Six Nations tournament between England and Ireland.
A Grand Slam replacement for the France team. With five wins in several matches and 100% success in 2022, France’s XV remain third in the standings in the history of the Six Nations Tournament. A classification established since 2000, the arrival of Italy, the tournament has spread to six countries.
In 23 games, the French won 63%: 73 games won, two draws and 40 defeats. Six final victories in the tournament: 2002, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2010, and thus 2022, four Grand Slams (2002, 2004, 2010, 2022). A booming start to the 2000s with four wins in six editions before a big airhole. After the 2011 World Cup, France will face some difficult years and poor performances in European competitions. Even the sad last place in 2013. No podium between 2012 and 2016.
But with this year’s victory, France is now moving closer to England and Ireland. Only four wins set XV Du Kok apart from Rose at the top of the standings. In addition, we note the sad record of our Italian neighbors: 13 wins, one draw (against Welsh in 2006), 101 defeats. Eleven wooden spoons in 23 tournaments, including six consecutive games between 2015 and 2021. A new Grand Slam ahead of the next World Cup – along with the defeats of English and Irish – could put France at the top of the rankings.
