Revisiting move?[edit]

Looking through the Tri Nations disambiguation page, it appears that this article meets Wikipedia's primary topic criteria as significantly more well-known and widely used than other Tri Nations articles. Is another move discussion warranted? --Muchness (talk) 09:30, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

I would argue not, since the Tri Nations will be renamed soon when/if Argentina join, so it will soon lose this status. Greenman (talk) 11:12, 27 October 2009 (UTC)

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE UPDATE THE TRI-NATIONS OVERALL TABLE TO REFLECT 2010 RESULTS? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 94.6.238.48 (talk) 09:42, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

Will True Visions be showing the Tri nations in HD in the near future[edit]

Will True Visions be showing the Tri nations in HD in the near future? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 58.8.77.176 (talk) 05:21, 23 June 2010 (UTC)

[edit]

In the info there is currently a logo which includes the sponsor Castrol. I'd prefer if we used a non-sponsored logo. The first reason is that the sponsors tend to chance over time. The second reason is that there are different sponsors in each country. Can I suggest we use this logo instead: File:Tri Nations.png

I also think that each 'year page' should also use that logo. Crazydude22 (talk) 16:40, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

No complaints, so I will change the logos to non-sponsored ones. Crazydude22 (talk) 09:58, 9 August 2011 (UTC)

Should the article be renamed?[edit]

Given that Argentina will be joining the Tournament in it's next edition, should the article be renamed to Four Nations? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 200.69.213.193 (talk) 22:18, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Probably. Super 12 and Super 14 are rolled up into Super Rugby. The Six Nations Championship article covers the competition prior to Italy joining as the sixth team. Do we know what the official name for the tournament will be from 2012 onward, though? Will it be just "Four Nations"? --Stormie (talk) 22:30, 19 September 2011 (UTC)
Sounds like the official name is going to be "The Rugby Championship"[1] AIRcorn (talk) 06:57, 8 November 2011 (UTC)
At the moment there are now two separate pages - Tri Nations (rugby union) and The Rugby Championship. Any suggestions what we do with them? I propose moving the info on the Tri Nations (rugby union) page to The Rugby Championship and putting a redirect on this page. Surely no need to have 2 separate articles? It's not a new competition, it's the same competition that's been expanded and rebranded. Thoughts? TheMightyPeanut (talk) 08:28, 9 November 2011 (UTC)
I agree, it seems better to have just one article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 170.252.248.205 (talk) 14:44, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

Move?[edit]

The following discussion is an archived discussion of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on the talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

No consensus to move. Vegaswikian (talk) 03:14, 29 November 2011 (UTC)

The Rugby Championship → ? –

  • This page got to name The Rugby Championship by me obeying a history-merge request, and its organizers call it "The Rugby Championship"; but likely there are or were many rugby-football-related championships in the world: add a disambig term? Anthony Appleyard (talk) 06:19, 22 November 2011 (UTC)
    • I requested the history merge, thanks for fixing that. There is the Australian, Americas, Canadian, Wheelchair plus many other Rugby Championships. However this is likely to be the primary topic for this name so it may be better to use a hatnote linking to Rugby Championship (disambiguation) with these other comps listed there. AIRcorn (talk) 10:30, 22 November 2011 (UTC)
      • Since there was no other proposed name, or opposition to the above, I created the disambiguation page. TheMightyPeanut (talk) 11:35, 26 November 2011 (UTC)
  • Prefer the hatnote solution, since the article name seems to reflect the name used. Peterkingiron (talk) 17:23, 25 November 2011 (UTC)
The above discussion is preserved as an archive of the proposal. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page. No further edits should be made to this section.

External links[edit]

I've removed the following (again), why? Because they seem like ads, at least to me.

Top try scorers outdated[edit]

I see Bryan Habana is not on the list of top try scorers, although he should be 3rd on the current list, with 14 tries (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_international_rugby_union_tries_by_Bryan_Habana ). I'm not sure where to get the updated stats, however. Can someone who does please update this table? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 41.185.113.93 (talk) 10:07, 7 October 2012 (UTC)

Known As The All Black[edit]

The piece states, "The inaugural Tri Nations tournament was in 1996, and was won by New Zealand – known as the All Blacks. South Africa won their first title in 1998, and Australia their first in 2000." If the All Black's name is going to be highlighted then why not the Wallabies and Springboks? This appears to be written by either a rabid All Blacks supporter, or a child. Ooops... did I actually write that? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 122.248.112.128 (talk) 10:31, 25 June 2013 (UTC)

Tiebreakers[edit]

The article states that "If teams end level on points the first tiebreaker is point differential," but in 2012, Australia finished second with a point differential of -36, and South Africa finished third with (twelve table points - the same as Australia, and) a point differential of +11 (other sources show the same order, as well).

I have tried to research what the real first tiebreaker is (because it appears to be something other than point differential), but had not had any success so far. I am hoping that someone with more knowledge than myself might know how ties are broken, and be able to update the article.
