The Guinness Six Nations 2023 Quiz

Jan 30, 2023

Six Nations Quiz
The greatest rugby union tournament is back on February 4th – The Six Nations!

In a year which also includes the Rugby World Cup, this tournament may help decide the best of the Northern Hemisphere teams to take on the Southern Hemisphere giants.

ALSO – a brief apology for an answer to last week’s ‘Mixed Bag’ quiz which has been brought up a few times over the weekend. The question about T’Pau, while technically correct had an incorrect addition where I said she was Spock’s mother. Blame my coffee deprived brain because I thought it was the Vulcan name for his mother, Amanda, when in fact she was a Vulcan high priestess. MY APOLOGIES and the question has since been amended.
Thank you to Robert, Tom and Shane for ‘guiding’ me to correct my wrongdoing!
