News today that the Six Nations is being dragged kicking and screaming into the 21stcentury (straight from the 19th) with the announcement that a new bonus points system will be trialled next year.
So it’s the standard  4 points for a win, 2 points for draw, 0 points for defeat, plus a bonus point for scoring 4 tries and a losing bonus point for defeat by seven points or less, but there is a twist…
Any team achieving the Grand Slam will be awarded an extra 3 bonus points, the idea being to prevent a team that wins all 5 matches being beaten to the Six Nations title by a team with four bonus point wins and a bonus point defeat. 

I can’t be arsed to do the maths, but in theory that looks as if it might work…
