Rugby - Auld Alliance Trophy

Inaugurated in 2018, the trophy, which stands 60cm in height and is made of sterling silver, is contested annually only when France and Scotland meet in the Six Nations Championship.
It commemorates the captains of the two nations in the last matches played before the First World War – Eric Milroy (Scotland) and Marcel Burgun (France), both of whom perished in the conflict. In all, 22 French and 30 Scottish internationalists were killed in action.
The name “Auld Alliance” dates back to 1295 and was primarily a military and diplomatic accord between France and Scotland. 
Before the advent of the Auld Alliance Trophy, France had won 53 of the 91 meetings to Scotland's 35, with three draws (includes meetings outside of the Five/Six Nations Championship)
