Hi,

I've been at it again.

I've produced a new Visualisation that covers the full 136 Year history of the Six Nations / Five Nations / Home Nations Championship (from 1883!)

The Aim:
Produce a visual that could stand as a poster, providing detail of winners of the major trophies and successful eras of teams. Whilst also providing added interactivity to the online version, giving detail of matches and more nation specific annotations.

I also wanted to try and go away from your traditional sports viz and do something less dashboard-like and more data-art.

Check out the interactive version here:

I've tried to pick out key moments in the championship, wish I had more time to add more comments to the individual nation views.

Did you know that BOTH England and France have been expelled from the Championship!?

Cheers

Sam

This looks fascinating! Will need more time in the next couple of days to do it justice though. Thanks for sharing it.

It is interactive, so do click and have more of a poke around if you feel inquisitive!

Thanks

Does it include the "Grand Slams" wales fans insist Wikipedia says that they won in 1908 and 1909 amazingly before the Five Nations tournament was even started?
