11 of the Most Iconic Moments in Six Nations History

9. Ronan O’Gara ends Ireland’s drought

Ronan O’Gara’s temperament had been questioned by various pundits in the build-up to 2009’s dramatic Six Nations title decider at the Millennium Stadium.

Ireland triumphed 17–15 when O’Gara, having endured a disappointing first-half performance, struck a drop goal in the 85th minute to the nation’s second only grand slam.


10. Scotland rain on England’s parade

This match was full on, unremitting confrontation from the very first whistle to last.

The face of Andy Nicol at Murrayfield as he lifted the Calcutta Cup in 2000 spoke a thousand words.

It was the standout image on a startling afternoon, which saw England’s Grand Slam dreams crumble.

England won the Championship Trophy but nobody at Murrayfield noticed as yhe Scots team came out for a lap of honour.


11. Croke Park welcomes England

One of the most spine-tingling moments in the history of sport. From John Hayes’ tears, to Croke Park standing for God Save the Queen, Ireland’s clash with England in 2007 was memorable for so many reasons.

The respect shown for the English national anthem, despite the political issues will forever be remembered. A defining moment.
