Grand Slams:

Victory in every game results in a 'Grand Slam'

in mens rugby,

England-hold the record for the number of Grand Slams won with 12

Wales-Won 10 Grand slams

France-Have won 9

Scotland- Have won 3

Ireland- With 2

But Italy have never won a grand-slam

Women's:

The Women's Six Nations Championship is run at the same time as the men's competition
The competition also evolved from a Home Internationals Championship started in 1996 to include France, Spain before Italy took the latter's place in 2007.
England have dominated the tournament in recent years wining the last five Championships, four of which by Grand Slam with France interrupting their hegemony in 2002, 2004 and 2005.
England had also won 11 straight Triple Crown titles until 2009 when Wales won the honour by beating England for the first time ever 16-15.
Ireland also beat France for the first time ever in 2009 as both the Celtic Nations went on to record their highest ever finishes of third and second respectively.
However things returned to normality in 2010 with England not only winning for the fifth successive time but romping to the Grand Slam and taking back the Triple Crown.
