Six Nations Championship


Rugby touch judge's flag

[Rugby touch judge's flag] image by Ivan Sache, February 15, 2003.

The Six Nations Championship, the main rugby event in Europe, started today with Italy-Wales and England-France. The victory of Italy was totally unexpected, even more unexpected was the victory of England :-)

England-France, sponsored by the Royal Bank of Scotland, was played in the temple of English rugby in Twickenham. The touch judges had a flag diagonally divided white-blue. This pattern could have reflected the jersey colours - white for England and blue for France -, but I believe that it rather uses the Scottish colours for the sponsor. There is a logo in the upper white corner, unfortunately (for the sponsor) unreadable on TV images.

As usual, England-France caused a peak in stubborn chauvinism on both sides of the Channel, which was not translated in the stadium by the players. It is well-known that rugby is a hoodlum's sport played by gentlemen.
