    With Wales and Scotland today winning promotion to Division I, does anyone know when was the last time England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland were all in it together?

    1. Men's, women's or both?

    2. Assuming neither ENG nor IRE are relegated next week of course...

    Well the Scottish players have been saying on twitter that this is their 6th attempt at making the A division (whether that's personal or as a nation I don't know) and I overheard Welsh supporters yesterday saying they can't ever remember being in the top flight. So quite a while is the answer!

    I'm 99% sure it's the Welsh men's first time in the top tier.

    Thanks redumpire - Hockey Wales are now saying 1999 but I know the competition has had different formats over the years so that might be the reason.

    It will be interesting to see how it affects the GB buildup to Tokyo with all 3 home nations playing at that level.

    Obviously hoping that England and Ireland stay up too - though the pure Scotsman in me may not be 100% behind a successful England :p
