English National Anthem- God Save the Queen

 

England is one of the oldest rugby teams in the world. First playing rugby in 1871 against Scotland. Since then they have become one of the most successful teams in rugby. Winning the championship 28 times. They are also the only northern hemisphere winners of the Rugby World Cup (2003). Twickenham Stadium has been the home of English rugby since 1910, and is one of the largest stadiums of the 6 Nations.

This anthem is one of the smallest anthems in the 6 nations. Although technically the national anthem for Great Britain (along with a few of the Commonwealth nations who have adopted it as one of their anthems), England adopted it as their anthem as they didn’t have an official anthem. You can normally hear the crowd singing to Jerusalem and Swing Low Sweet Chariot, but the official anthem of England rugby is God Save the Queen.

The anthem is one of the oldest in the 6 Nations. Depending on the gender of the Monarch it can change, but origins go back to 1619, since then there have been some changes to the lyrics. The first published version of the song which is the closest to what we now know was in 1744.

 

God save our gracious Queen
Long live our noble Queen
God save The Queen!
Send her victorious
Happy and glorious
Long to reign over us
God save The Queen!

 

England play Ireland in Dublin in the final match of the 6 Nations. England have already regained the championship, beating all other teams so far in the championship. Facing Ireland on St Patricks weekend at Dublin is no easy task. The Triple Crown and the Grand Slam are still to play for, as well as their winning streak which is at 18 – 1 more win for the world record wins in a row. The last country to win this many in a row was New Zealand who were stopped from winning their 19th win in a row by none other than Ireland last year in America. Ireland will relish the fact that they could stop England from getting the world record, and the grand slam. Should be a very exhilarating end to this year’s 6 Nations.
