The entire program of the 2022 edition of the sixth tournament has been formalized by its organizer, Six Nations Rugby Limited. Back to the lottery, and then what.
For the 128th edition, the next Sixth Nations Tournament 2022 will be held from February 5 to March 19. Lotteries are recently published and give advance notice of this event, which takes place only once a year. The calendar announcement indicates the hosting of three home games, including a final meeting in Stade de France against Italy, Ireland and England. Wales, the defending champions, will play Ireland on Saturday, February 5. The day after the meeting, France will face Italy in their first match of the year. Event General Manager Benjamin Morel said the 2021 tournament is one of the toughest in history. He won eight of his 15 games and won at least 7 points. It is to be hoped that the situation in the second place will not be repeated. However, the order of the meetings is practically the same as in the 2021 edition: Ireland, February 12, Scotland, February 26. Change only: France’s XV will face Wales on March 11 and then England at the end of the long-awaited tournament.
The Blues finished second in the final game against Scotland (23-27) for the second year in a row. A defeat in the opinion of their coach. Of course, in addition to their match against Italy, some might describe the cruise with a crushing 50-10 victory, the French team never stopped playing with limitations. Even Fabian Galtic declares: “In this tournament, all of our qualifications were very intense and almost everything was played in the finals.” This feeling of unfinished business will give the French a special craft but they can expect to raise the trophy for it all. Also, Benjamin Morel does not hide his impatience to find a tournament that deserves a name: “We look forward to next year’s tournament and hope to return to normalcy and the stadium’s supporters to bring this unparalleled atmosphere.” It should be noted that licensees and ticket holders for the match between France and Ireland in 2020 will have priority to open the 2022 tournament ticket office. The good news is, it’s open soon
