Tri Nations Series

From Example Problems
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Tri Nations Series is an annual international Rugby Union series held between Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. The series is played on a home and away basis with the three nations playing each other twice. The competition is organized by SANZAR, a consortium formed by the rugby governing bodies of Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa.

Since the inception of the Tri Nations series, the games played in it between Australia and New Zealand also determine the winner of the Bledisloe Cup each year.

The Competition

The order of fixtures has changed several times throughout the history of the series. The most recent reworking of the Tri Nations calendar took effect in 2002; the current schedule is outlined below.

In odd-numbered years, the series starts with South Africa hosting Australia. The following week, South Africa hosts New Zealand. The Tri Nations then moves for two weeks to Australia. The first match in Australia is the Bledisloe Cup opener between Australia and New Zealand, with Australia and South Africa playing the next week. Finally, the Tri Nations crosses the Tasman Sea to New Zealand, with South Africa as the All Blacks' first home opponent. The series ends with New Zealand and Australia playing in the final Bledisloe Cup tie. The order of fixtures is reversed in even-numbered years; this means that the first Bledisloe Cup tie will then open the Tri Nations.

The matches are generally held in July and August, after the completion of the Super 12 competition for the year, which features teams from the same countries as the Tri Nations.

The winner is determined by a points system:

  • 4 points for a win
  • 2 points for a draw
  • 0 points for a loss

"Bonus points" may also be earned in any given match, and count fully toward deciding the series winner. A team may earn one bonus point in either of the following ways:

  • Scoring four or more tries in a match, regardless of the final result of the match.
  • Losing by seven points (a converted try) or less.

A victorious team can collect either 4 or 5 points, depending on whether it scored 4 tries. A losing team may collect anywhere from 0 to 2 points.

At the end of the series the team with the most points is declared the winner. If teams end level on points, the first tiebreaker is point differential, followed by number of tries during the series. However, the Tri Nations has yet to finish in a tie for the top spot.

Future Developments

In 2006, a third round of fixtures will be added to the Tri Nations as a result of a comprehensive television deal between SANZAR and broadcasters in the United Kingdom and the three SANZAR countries. The deal will also add two teams to the Super 12, making it the Super 14.
