1968 Five Nations Tournament
The 1968 Five Nations Tournament (played from January 13 to March 23, 1968) is the 39th of its kind and even the 74th if we start from the very first British tournament of 1882-1883. The victory of France is doubled by its first Grand Slam, since it wins its four matches. Conversely, Scotland, losing its four, gets the Wooden Spoon (its tenth since its premiere in 1902).
