The 2011 Six Nations Championship, known as the 2011 RBS 6 Nations due to the tournament's sponsorship by the Royal Bank of Scotland, was the 12th series of the Six Nations Championship. The annual northern hemisphere rugby union championship was contested by England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland and Wales. The tournament was won by England.

Including the competition's previous incarnations as the Home Nations Championship and Five Nations Championship, it was the 117th edition of the annual Northern Hemisphere championship.

The biggest development for this season was Ireland's opening of their new Aviva Stadium on the former site of Lansdowne Road. The completion of the Aviva ended the IRFU's arrangement with the Gaelic Athletic Association that allowed the rugby team to use the GAA's flagship venue of Croke Park for rugby internationals. Ireland played their first Tests at the Aviva in November 2010.

For the first time in its history, the tournament opened with a Friday night fixture.[1] For the first time in a decade, all of the teams had the same head coach as in the previous year's tournament.[2]

The tournament was also notable for a major upset, with Italy coming up from the bottom of the table, to beat then holders France. The champions were England who won their first four matches, but were denied the Grand Slam by a defeat to Ireland.

Italy's Andrea Masi was named as the Six Nations Player of the Championship, becoming the first Italian player to win the award with 30% of the voting. The runners up were Fabio Semenzato in second, Sean O'Brien in third and Toby Flood in fourth. [3]

Final results[edit]

England won the championship after winning four out of their five matches, losing only one against Ireland meaning they did not achieve a Grand Slam. Due to France defeating Wales in the final match of the tournament, England ended the tournament at the top of the table.[4] Had England beaten Ireland it would have led to their first Grand Slam since 2003.[4] Italy lost their final match against Scotland to claim the wooden spoon for the ninth time since entering the competition in 2000.[5]

  1. ^ Moody, England's regular captain, was initially ruled out of at least the first two rounds of the competition with a knee injury.[6] He returned to play for his club team, Bath, on 20 February, but his injury reportedly returned during a training session for England's third match against France, ultimately ruling him out of the rest of the Championship. Tindall suffered an ankle injury during England's fourth match against Scotland that ruled him out of their final match against Ireland; Nick Easter was named captain for that match in TIndall's absence.[7][8][9]

  • Chris Ashton's four-try performance marked a number of milestones:
    • He became the first player of any nation to score four tries in a Six Nations match since the competition took its current form in 2000.
    • He also became the first England player to have scored four tries in a Six Nations, Five Nations, or Home Nations match since Ronald Poulton scored four against France in 1914.
  • His six tries so far in the competition equal the single-season record in the Six Nations era, shared by Will Greenwood of England and Shane Williams of Wales.

  • Brian O'Driscoll's try gave him 24 career tries in the Championship, equalling the all-time record of Ian Smith of Scotland amassed in the Five Nations and Home Nations between 1924 and 1933.[11]
  • Ronan O'Gara became the fifth player in rugby history with 1,000 career Test points, reaching the mark with his conversion of O'Driscoll's try.[11]
  • The officials were heavily criticised for allowing the Wales try as it was scored following a quick throw-in after the ball went out on the full, with a different ball. A quick throw-in must be taken with the same ball which hasn't been touched after going over the touchline.[12]
