Relatively new on the international Rugby calendar is the biannual Rugby 4 Nations. Teams currently involved are England and Scotland, along with Australia and New Zealand. The first tournament took place in 2009 and featured France, later replaced by Scotland. Each team plays each other once, the top two then playing again for the final. Australia have won the tournament 3 times while England hold the most titles in the larger 6 Nations competition. There will be two games played at the Ricoh Arena, giving fans a chance to see all 4 countries in action.
