The history of the rugby championship dates back to the 1903 Australia versus New Zealand game. In 1921, South Africa visited the two teams but there was not yet an official tournament in place.
As the years unfolded, in 1930, New Zealand and Australia began officially playing the Bledisloe Cup. And with the professionalizing of the rugby union in 1995. The Tri-Nations concept was launched in 1996 with Australia, South Africa and New Zealand rugby unions forming SANZAR.
This tournament was launched to rival the Five Nations of Europe as a southern hemisphere tournament. The three countries played the tournament annually until 2012. When they included Argentina courtesy of its impressive performance in international games including its third-place finish of the 2007 Rugby World Cup. After the merit inclusion of Argentina, this tourney was renamed The Rugby Championship in 2012.
A win gives a team four points in the league and a draw gives a team two points while a loss by eight or more points gives a team zero points. A team can earn bonus points in two ways, either by scoring three tries or more against an opponent in a match or losing by seven points or less in a match. The winner of the 2018 Rugby Championship is the team with the most points after all games played.
