The office is getting all a buzz as it once again time for the Six Nations rugby tournament. After all the excitement of the Rugby World Cup held in England last year it will be interesting to see how the home nations react to disappointing tournament.

England

Vice Captain –  Jason Yip

Scotland

There are big prizes for the overall winners of the competition plus prizes for the head to heads. The competition breakdown works like this:

 Scoring is as follows:
A try                 = 5 Points     (Score a try by meeting your weekly SPH target)
A Penalty Try     = 5 Points     (Working 8 Hours at the Weekend)
A Conversion      = 2 points     (Awarded to the highest quality-scored calls of the week)
A Drop Goal       = 3 points     (If your country wins a match in the Six Nations)
A Penalty           = -3 points   (3 points deducted for lateness/non-attendance)
Teams will compete for extra prizes/points on Funday Fridays

We wish all the teams best of luck in the real and our Six Nations, and a note from myself C'mon England!
