With participants South Africa (3), New Zealand (3), Australia (2) all having claimed multiple Rugby World Cups, and Argentina boasting more semi-final appearances than World Rugby’s current #1 team Ireland, I repeat, there is no denying it, as far as annual rugby championships go, this is the top.

The Rugby Championship returns to action in 2022 with the All Blacks and Wallabies looking to rebuild confidence following home series’ defeats to Ireland and England respectively, while the Springboks and Argentina will look to build on the positives from their series’ wins over Wales and Scotland in July.
