2024 Six Nations teams: chances and predictions

Now we know the dates of the competition, let's take a look at the individual teams and how they’ll fare next year.


Ireland will head into the 2024 Six Nations competition as the reigning champions. They dominated in 2023, sweeping the competition to take the Grand Slam win.

Andy Farrell's side, currently ranked as the number two team in the world, had previously held the number one spot before their defeat against New Zealand in the Rugby World Cup in the summer of 2023.

As the reigning Grand Slam champions, Ireland will be a formidable team to beat in this year's Six Nations tournament. The Irish squad aims to recapture their top form and maintain their dominant position in the championship.


England’s 2023 Six Nations campaign left some to be desired, finishing fourth with two wins and three losses.

That isn’t to say they won’t be a threat to next year's competition, though. They will be looking to improve some throughout 2023 and will see the 2024 Six Nations as the best place to show up.

One of the matchups they will have circled is their fifth-round tie against France, who beat them heavily 10-53 at Twickenham.

England may not have been in complete form in 2023, but 2024 is a different year. Building upon their achievement as bronze medalists in the recent World Cup, the 2024 Six Nations provides England another chance to further develop their squad.

Scotland had a respectable 2023 Six Nations campaign, finishing with three wins and two losses. However, finishing the World Cup in the pool stage wouldn’t have been on Scotland’s plans, and they will be wanting to rectify this in the 2024 Six Nations.

The Scots are ranked fifth in the world, just ahead of England. Scotland are something of the best-of-the-rest side. Up against the top four sides in the world of Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and France, Scotland sometimes look a bit down. But against anyone below them in the rankings, they look just as dominant as those top four.

As strong as they have looked in previous competitions, Scotland are yet to win the Six Nations in its current format since 2000. Could 2024 be their year?

Wales are the most successful side in Six Nations history, having won the competition 40 times in total, with 28 outright wins and 12 shared wins.

2023, though, saw them pick up just one win and lose in the Quarter-Finals to Argentina in the Rugby World Cup. In a year with more than just rugby plaguing the team, 2024 could be their chance to show they are back to their best.

For Wales, they often go through phases of mediocrity before returning to the top. Is 2024 too soon to think they could turn things around and return to being a dominant force? Or could it be the start of their new golden generation?

France finished as runners-up in the 2023 Six Nations, losing just one game, which was to the eventual Grand Slam winners Ireland.

They last won the Six Nations in 2022, that time taking the Grand Slam victory themselves. Their side has remained largely the same, which is to say still very dominant.

Ranked fourth in the world, France was expected to reach the World Cup Final in the summer but fell short to World Champions South Africa in the Semi-Finals.

They will want to put some things to right in their next big international tournament. It could be another battle between themselves and Ireland in the 2024 Six Nation’s Championship.

Italy are still yet to find success in the Six Nations since joining in 2000 and thus expanding the championship to six teams (hence the name).

Unfortunately for the Italians, they often find themselves as the recipient of the Wooden Spoon, which is awarded to the team that finishes last in the standings each year.

Their 2023 campaign saw them finish last once again for their eighth consecutive Wooden Spoon, as they failed to take a single win and picked up just one point. After losing to France in the World Cup 60-7, and finishing the tournament in the pool stage, Italy will want to restore some pride in the Italian shirt in this year's Six Nations.

As mentioned earlier, 2024 is a different year. While it may be a bit too much to say they could be in contention for the win, Italy will surely be looking to at least not take home another Wooden Spoon.
