Here at Ticketbis, you can find all your Rugby Championship tickets in one place!
Originally “The Tri-Nations Tournament”, The Rugby Championship is a contest held annually between four countries of the Southern Hemisphere. Originally played solely between South Africa Springboks, New Zealand All Blacks and Australia Wallabies, the teams represented the epitome of Rugby Union, a best of the best tournament. The inclusion of Argentina’s Los Pumas had been rumoured since 2007, as during the Rugby World Cup the team placed them fourth in the IRB World Ranking. Despite this surprising evidence of skill, the Argentineans weren’t initiated into the tournament until 2011, prompting the name change.
While South Africa and Australia have equally enjoyed several wins of the Rugby Championship, it is New Zealand that rules the roost, winning a staggering ten out of sixteen tournaments! With Argentina’s recent participation, the team are still on rocky ground compared to other giants however this is surely set to change as the team develops in the next couple of years. Of course, while each team’s main concern lies with the overall contention of the Rugby Championship, there are a numbers of trophies contested within the Championship! Special trophies such as the Bledisloe Cup between Australia and New Zealand, the Freedom Cup between New Zealand and South Africa and the Mandela Challenge Plate between Australia and South Africa all hold a certain level of reverence between each team, and while a team may not win the Rugby Championship, there’s still solace in winning one of the special trophies that pepper this amazing event!
