The Autumn Nations Cup was a rugby union competition held in November and December 2020 in place of the usual Autumn internationals series typically held in the same period each year, as many teams were avoiding extended travel due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Eight teams participated – the teams involved in the Six Nations Championship ( England, France, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, and Wales) plus Georgia and Fiji – divided into two groups of four.
This new international competition is between England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, France, Italy, Fiji, and Georgia.

There are two pools of four countries in the tournament.
