Five Nations Tournament 1999
The 1999 Five Nations Championship was sponsored by Lloyds TSB and was the seventieth series of the rugby union Five Nations Championship. Including the previous incarnations as the Home Nations and Five Nations, this was the hundred-and-fifth series of the northern hemisphere rugby union championship. Ten matches were played over five weekends from 6 February to 11 April. The tournament was won by Scotland, who beat England on points difference. Scotland scored sixteen tries in the tournament, to England's eight.
It was notable for the dramatic climax to the tournament, which was decided in the dying minutes of the final match. England were heavy favourites to beat Wales and claim both the tournament title and Grand Slam. With England leading the match by six points as the game entered injury time, Wales centre Scott Gibbs evaded a number of tackles to score a try from approximately 20 metres. Neil Jenkins successfully converted to claim victory for Wales by a single point and hand the Championship to Scotland in one of the most memorable matches in the tournament's history. Scotland had staged their own remarkable upset the previous day, scoring five first-half tries to beat France in Paris for only the second time in 30 years.
This was the last Five Nations Championship; in 2000, Italy joined the tournament, which became the Six Nations Championship. Indeed, Italy played all the Five Nations sides during the 1998/99 season, partly in preparation for joining the tournament the following year and lost all five of those games.
