Thinking and talking about rugby every day for 50+ years
It was tough times for the ABs at the Rugby World Cup in Cardiff. The alleged 'forward' pass by a Frenchman led to a try - and New Zealand headed homewards.
A quintuple tie occurs in the Five Nations (and more recently the Six Nations) championship has happened only once in over 100 years since France joined the championship in 1910.
In 1972–73 each of the five countries won twice at home and lost twice in away games, so each took four points in the unofficial championship. While some historians record this as a tie between all five countries, others ‘give’ the title to Scotland on the basis that it scored more match points than any other team.
