The Rugby Championship

Formerly known as the Tri-Nations, this is the annual tournament played between Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and (beginning in 2012) Argentina. As the TN, it was the first new national team tournament to be created after the advent of professionalism in 1995.
From 1996 until 2005 the teams played each twice each season (home and away). This system was also used in 2007 - World Cup year.
In 2006 and from 2008 onwards the sides have played each other three times.
In 2012 the event was renamed as The Rugby Championship and the system reverted to home and away round robin with Argentina's inclusion.
