The 1976 Five Nations Championship was the forty-seventh series of the rugby union Five Nations Championship. Including the previous incarnations as the Home Nations and Five Nations, this was the eighty-second series of the northern hemisphere rugby union championship. Ten matches were played between 10 January and 20 March.
Note: The Scotland v France game was played one week earlier than the England V Wales game, to allow the BBC to cover both the latter game, and the Ireland v Australia game in Dublin on the same day. Bill Mclaren thus, unusually, commentated on the opening two games of a 5 nations tournament for the first time since the two games per weekend format was introduced in 1974.
