The 2011 IRB Nations Cup was the sixth edition of the international rugby union tournament, a competition created by the International Rugby Board. It pits the "A" Teams of the stronger (Tier 1) rugby nations (e.g. Argentina Jaguars) against some of the Tier 2 and 3 nations (e.g. Romania).[1]

For the fifth consecutive year the event was held in Bucharest, Romania. Namibia returned to defend their title, but South African Kings were the overall winners of the tournament.

The competition format was a modified round-robin whereby each team played 3 of the other 5 teams. The competition was played over three match days, with three matches played consecutively on each day.
