Six Nations of the Outdoors

Six Nations of the outdoors – which country will win?

It’s Six Nations time again and while Rugby Union fans from England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, France and Italy are supporting their team to glory, we thought we’d pitch these six countries against each other in a very different type of competition.

Each week to coincide with the Six Nations fixtures, we’re going to put the competing countries against each other in a vote for which outdoor feature is best. It could be mountain versus mountain, national park against national park. We’ll host each vote over on our Facebook and Twitter accounts for you to get involved in.

Team Played Won Lost Drawn Points
France 2 2 0 0 4
Wales 2 2 0 0 4
England 2 1 0 1 3
Scotland 2 0 1 1 1
Italy 2 0 2 0 0
Ireland 2 0 2 0 0
