    Hello, my friends,

    Quick question about the upcoming Six Nations tournament (about which I simply could not be more excited)...

    Looking at the five scheduled rounds, I see that Italy only has to play away from home once, with 4 home games. At first I thought, "That's totally unfair!" but then I thought, "Or, maybe, it's intentional? Maybe because Italy will likely fair poorly, do they get a scheduling advantage to make the competition more competitive? Are your number of home vs. away games decided on previous results, or predictions?

    Thanks as always, everyone!

    -Dave

    Not sure what your looking at but they have Scotland and England away. Teams take hosting games in turns. so if your home in 2019 you will be away in 2020. The only random thing is the order of games.

    Derp - my bad, I counted wrong.

    Thanks for the info about the alternating years, though, makes sense when everyone has an odd number of matches.

    Thanks again,

    -Dave
