Tri-Slam!

Postby R-Dog » November 24th, 2016, 5:36 pm

On Saturday we have the chance to defeat the big 3 (sorry Argies) Southern Hemisphere teams in one calendar year!

Has this ever been done before?

Obviously not by Ireland

England did them back to back in Nov 02 and then they did them again AWAY in 03. Including with 13 men in Wellington v the ABs

Well as our first win in history against the All Blacks occurred two weeks ago I would think not...


It's a great achievement if it happens but the 'Slam' title is probably inappropriate given we also lost twice against RSA and once against New Zealand.

Has any other NH team, aside from England, beaten all three SH big wigs in one calendar year?

Interesting that it's us and England in with a shout at it this weekend.

Given that Wales haven't beaten New Zealand since 1953 and that Scotland have never tasted victory against them, I'd say it's unlikely. Pretty sure France have never done it either, at least not in a calendar year
