World Cup Six Nations

World Cup

The women's version of the World Cup began four years after the men's. The first two events were not sanctioned by the International Rugby Board.
Whereas the men took well over a century to organise a world tournament, the female of the species came up with a World Cup (although not officially sanctioned) in 1991, just nine years after the Netherlands and France contested the first-ever women's international match.

From 1996 until 1998 it's forerunner was the women's Home Nations Championship. France made it Five Nations in 1999, before Spain joined up in 2002.
As for the men, a Grand Slam is won when a team beats all others in one season and the Triple Crown is one of the British/Irish nations beating all the other "Home Nations" in a single campaign.
