Six Nations 2018 Bonus Points: How Do Rugby Teams Earn An Extra Point?

Eddie Jones’ side took their 28th championship with a game to spare, but were denied a Triple Crown and Grand Slam triumph by a determined Ireland.

In a Six Nations first, bonus points were awarded in 2017 in what was designed to be a three-year trial run.

But due to its overwhelming success in encouraging attacking, engaging rugby, that trial has now been scrapped and the system brought in permanently.

And plenty of teams have already earned bonus points in this year’s competition.

How do you get a bonus point?

THE tournament uses a league system where the six competing nations are ranked in a table.

They receive four points for a win, two points for a draw and nothing for a defeat.

If a team wins all their games – called a Grand Slam – they are automatically given three extra points to make sure they finish top of the pile.

Source Cowboys Will Release Cornerback Orlando Scandrick




The Dallas Cowboys have informed cornerback Orlando Scandrick?he will be released, a source told ESPN’s Josina Anderson.

Scandrick had requested his release from the team.

At the end of last season, Scandrick thought his time with the Cowboys was coming to an end, with the team using rookies Chidobe Awuzie and Jourdan Lewis at outside cornerback, and safety Xavier Woods in the slot, as he dealt with a back injury. The Cowboys also intend to move Byron Jones back to cornerback in 2018 after he started the past two seasons at safety.

Scandrick, 31, is signed through 2019 with base salaries of $3 million and $4 million. If the Cowboys release or trade him, they would save $1.4 million against the salary cap.

Scandrick joined the Cowboys as a fifth-round pick in 2008 and outperformed their first-round pick from that year, Mike Jenkins. He served as a slot corner his first five years, becoming one of the best interior defenders in the league. He moved into a full starting role in 2013. Injuries took their toll in recent years, with the most severe a knee injury that cost him the 2015 season.

At last year’s draft, the Cowboys and New Orleans Saints talked about a deal involving Scandrick and safety Kenny Vaccaro, but neither team pulled the trigger. The Saints continue to have a need for a cornerback and could go after Scandrick again.

ESPN’s Todd Archer contributed to this report.
