2024 Guinness Women’s Six Nations: Schedule, Viewing Options, and Results – Mar 23-Apr 27

The countdown to the 2024 edition of the Guinness Women’s Six Nations is on! Set to commence next week, this year’s competition promises to be a groundbreaking spectacle, not only showcasing the athleticism and skill of the players but also introducing several pioneering advancements to the women’s game.

In 2022, England emerged triumphant, clinching the title with a stunning Grand Slam victory, culminating in a thrilling 38–33 triumph over France in the final game. With England defending their crown, all eyes are on the powerhouse squad to maintain their dominance. However, the stage is set for fierce competition, with France, Wales, Scotland, Italy, and Ireland all vying for glory.

This year, the Women’s Six Nations enters a new era with the support of Guinness, the renowned sponsor of the men’s tournament. Alongside this partnership, several groundbreaking innovations promise to revolutionize the game.

First among these innovations is the introduction of the bunker system, a technology that offers referees the ability to review incidents of foul play for potential red card offenses. This system, previously reserved for the men’s game, marks a significant step forward in ensuring fair play and player safety. With the upcoming 2025 Women’s Rugby World Cup in mind, the implementation of the bunker system aims to familiarize players and officials with its use, setting a precedent for future tournaments.

Accompanying the bunker system are two additional advancements: instrumented mouthguards and the shot clock. Instrumented mouthguards, will now provide real-time alerts for off-field head injury assessments, further enhancing player welfare initiatives. Meanwhile, the shot clock will add a new dynamic to penalty and conversion kicks, ensuring swift and decisive gameplay.

Moreover, this year’s tournament holds added significance beyond the quest for the Six Nations title. The competition standings will directly impact qualification for the 2024 WXV  Championship, serving as a crucial pathway for teams aiming to secure a spot in the 2025 Women’s Rugby World Cup in England.

England and France have already secured their places in the upcoming World Cup, having reached the semi-finals of the previous edition in New Zealand. However, with the landscape of women’s rugby evolving rapidly, no team can afford to rest on past laurels.

While England and France are expected to lead the charge, other nations such as Wales, Scotland, Italy, and Ireland will undoubtedly be eager to make their mark. Ireland, in particular, will be looking to improve on their Wooden Spoon performance from last year, seeking redemption and a chance to showcase their resilience and skill on the field.

As anticipation mounts and teams prepare to take the field, the 2024 Guinness Women’s Six Nations promises not only to deliver exhilarating rugby but also to propel the women’s game into an exciting new era of innovation and progress. Let the games begin!
