6 Nations: Si cambia, dalla prossima edizione spazio ai bonus

SAMSUNG
Alba Ovale – 2016

Il Board del 6 Nations ha annunciato ieri un cambiamento epocale nel sistema di attribuzione dei punti.

Per la prima volta, infatti, anche il 6 Nations introduce i quattro punti per la vittoria, con un bonus offensivo (quattro mete marcate) e difensivo (sconfitta sotto il break, sette punti).

Ecco, di seguito, un estratto del comunicato stampa ufficiale:

The Six Nations Council today announced the introduction of a bonus points system in the RBS 6 Nations, The Women’s Six Nations and the Under 20s Six Nations Championships.

This system will be implemented on a trial basis in all three Championships in 2017 and will be reviewed post Championships.
 
As part of their review of the Championships, the Council took the decision to implement a bonus point system to encourage and reward try scoring and attacking play. 
 
Competition points will be awarded in all matches on the following basis:

  1. The Union that wins the Match shall be awarded four Match Points or (if it scores four tries or more in the process) five Match Points.
  2. The Union that loses the Match shall be awarded no Match Points or (if it scores four tries or more in the process or loses by a margin of seven points or fewer) one Match Point or (if it scores four tries or more in the process and loses by a margin of seven points or fewer) two Match Points.
  3. Unions that draw a Match shall each be awarded two Match Points and any of them that scores four tries or more in the process shall be awarded a further one Match Point.
  4. A Union that wins all five of its Matches (a “Grand Slam”) shall be awarded a further three Match Points.”
