2022 Six Nations Predictions

The 2022 Six Nations tournament will be the 23rd iteration of the annual Rugby Union tournament, known also as one of the most popular rugby competitions worldwide. It traditionally hosts the six best European Rugy nations, including England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, and Wales.

The Six Nations tournament is actually the successor to the Home Nations Championship which was contested between England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales. It was held between 1883-1909 and 1932–1939. France joined in to make it the Five Nations Championship (1910–31 and 1947–99). But with the inclusion of Italy, we came to the format of six teams that we know today.

Six Nations is also a perfect opportunity for established stars and new talent to shine like Alex Dombrandt, Keith Earls, Freddie Steward, Peter O’Mahony, Andy Christie, Johnny Sexton, Paul Willemse, Joe Schmidt, Jamie Ritchie, Sam Simmonds, Finn Russell, Cameron Woki, Antoine Dupont, Rory Darge, Kieran Crowley and Romain Ntamack.

The Six Nations Rugby tournament is one of the most-watched events all over the world, in Rugby right after the World Cup, making the Six Nations betting opportunities a highly sought commodity. With our help, you can follow all the coming matchups throughout the tournament as well as view the most recent 2022 Six Nations tips needed.

When is the 2022 Six Nations Tournament Played?

The Six Nations tournament is an annual competition with a very long tradition. Including all the previous incarnations, this is going to be the 128th edition of the competition. This year’s tournament will start on 5 February 2022 and go all the way till 19 March 2022.

The tournament will open with a game in Dublin, at Aviva Stadium, where the defending Six Nations Champions Wales will take on the home team of Ireland. The first round will also see the Lions travelling to Scotland to face the home team at Murrayfield Stadium, while France and Italy play at Stade de France on February 6.

Which Teams are Competing in the 2022 Six Nations Tournament?

The Six Nations Rugby tournament is called as such because of the nations that compete against each other. This closed international rugby tournament was originally played between England, Scotland, Wales, and Ireland, then called the Home Nations Championship. France was the first nation to join, to make it five, and the current format was locked with Italy coming to the fold.

If we look at the modern history of the Six Nations tournament, from the year 2000 onward, England is the most successful nation with seven titles. The last one they won was in 2020. The second best nation is Wales, with six titles to their name including the one in the last year’s tournament. France and Ireland won four titles apiece, while both Scotland and Italy are the only nations without a win.

The Dragons are the most successful team when it comes to Grand Slams, as they have won four of them since 2000, winning the last one under Wayne Pivac as a head coach. Les Bleus follow with three, while England and Ireland have two apiece.

However, when it comes to Triple Crowns, both Dragons, the Lions, and the Shamrocks have five each. Wales, Ireland, and England are the most successful nations as one of the three teams has won the title in the last 11 seasons, which should be greatly considered when making your Six Nations picks.

2022 Six Nations Odds and Favourites

Having missed out on the title last season, the Les Bleus comes in as the clear pre tournament favourites to finally take home the Six Nations 2022 title this year and certainly seem like the best team. Coach Fabien Galthie’s men are a crew of all-star talent, which could spell victory for Les Bleus. Exciting France team will also have the opportunity to play three home games this year. Les Bleus also have momentum and inspiration on their side as they demolished New Zealand quite recently and won in such a commanding fashion during the Autumn Internationals and are looking for a title for the first time since 2009.

Both England and Ireland are the teams that should pose the most problems for France. The Lions should contend for the title, even with two home games in 2022, after their poor showing in last year’s Six Nations. England’s prospects are tied to their newest teen sensation Marcus Smith and leadership of head coach Eddie Jones. The youngster has already won a Gallagher Premiership title as well as the British and Irish Lions tour in his career. He has recently added a match-winning kick against South Africa for his nation to his tally of successes. Tom Curry is the likely choice for the new England captain as old captain Owen Farrell is out of SN with injury. Will England bounce back?

Do not count out the Irish and their head coach Andy Farrell. They enter the 2022 Six Nations tournament with a lot of buzz and the 4th place in World Rankings after wins over Fiji and Australia. They also defeated the All Blacks and recorded a half-century of points versus Argentina. Additionally, the provincial teams of Leinster, Ulster, Munster, and Connacht all qualified for the round of 16 of the Heineken Champions Cup where the majority of Irish players come from. They are hopeful of a 1st place finish.

The defending champions Wales are fourth in contention due to a lot of injuries to important players. Josh Navidi, Alun Wyn Jones, Ken Owens and Justin Tipuric are all out for the tournament, while George North may still play. But he is coming back from a knee ligament surgery, which could hamper his performance and Wales’ chances for the Six Nations win. Wayne Pivac’s men are in for an uphill battle to repeat last year’s success.

Scotland does have an outside chance, but Gregor Townsend’s men will need to pull of several upsets to go all the way this year but should be a tough outing for everyone on any given day.

Six Nations Table

Prior to 2017, the competition had a standard points system used by most Rugby tournaments. A win counts as two points, a draw is one, while a loss means zero points. However, since 2017 the Committee introduced a bonus system, which changed the scoring system. 

From 2017, a win counts as four points, a draw is two points, a loss is a nill, scoring four or more tries is one, and one point for losing by seven points or less. Additionally, Grand Slam winners will receive three extra points.

You can view the table below: 

Pos. Team Wins Draws Losses Points
1. France 0 0 0 0
2. England 0 0 0 0
3. Ireland 0 0 0 0
4. Wales 0 0 0 0
