Student Home Nations

 

This is a full record of all results from the Home Nations Championship (often known as Student Four Nations Championship) competed almost annually between England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales.

The championships started in 2004, a few years after Scotland and Ireland started playing the student game. Since then, with the exception of World Cup or European Cup years, this has been an annual event.

Thanks go to Ian Golden, who did most of the research work, to Lorraine Marsden and Richard de la Riviere for filling in the gaps from League Express archives and to Niel Wood and Kevin Rudd for confirming a few facts. The archives of Rugby League Express, Rugby League World and Open Rugby are used with thanks to all those at League Publications Ltd.

Notes:

World Cup years were 1996, 1999, 2002, 2005 (aimed to be in France but was cancelled), 2008, 2013 and 2017

European Cup years were 2001 and 2007

The Academic Ashes were launched in 1997 and all aims were to get players into that tournament. Other trials were held.
