The Rugby Championship is the annual rugby union competition contested by Argentina, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa. The competition is organized by SANZAR and prior to 2012 was known as the Tri Nations. The name changed in 2012 to reflect Argentina being included in the competition.
Robbie Deans is intent on ending Australia's long wait to win the Bledisloe Cup when the inaugural Rugby Championship begins in Sydney.
The 2012 Rugby Championship, formerly known as the Tri Nations, is the inaugural tournament with the four team format with the inclusion of Argentina. The annual tournament should be the best ever with the additional team and each side hoping to make their claim to the best team in the southern hemisphere.
