Autumn Rugby Internationals
They compete annually in the Six Nations Championship with England, France, Ireland, Italy and Scotland. Wales have won the Six Nations and its predecessors 26 times outright, joint-first with England. Wales' most recent championship win came in 2013. They also compete in the Rugby World Cup every four years. The International Rugby Board regards Wales as a Tier One rugby nation.
The governing body, the Welsh Rugby Union, was established in 1881, the same year that Wales played their first international against England. Wales' performances in the Home Nations Championship continued to improve, experiencing their first 'golden age' between 1900 and 1911. They first played New Zealand, known as the All Blacks, in 1905, when they defeated them 3–0 in a famous match at Cardiff Arms Park. Welsh rugby struggled between the first and second World Wars, but experienced a second 'golden age' between 1969 and 1980 when they won eight Five Nations Championships.
They played in the inaugural Rugby World Cup in 1987 where they achieved their best ever result of third.
