RUGBY WORLD CUP
Information about the Rugby World Cup in England in 2015, Japan in 2019, and beyond...

The first Rugby World Cup was held in New Zealand in 1987 and won by the All Blacks. The South African Springboks beat England in the 2007 World Cup final in Paris, France.

The 2011 Rugby World Cup was held in New Zealand. It was a fantastic event with huge support from Kiwis and also visitors from around the world. It was contested by 20 teams, playing 48 games over 7 weeks in 13 different venues throughout New Zealand.

A great atmosphere, some great performances, especially from the minor" teams, and of course and amazingly close final game. The New Zealand All Blacks won the Cup (at last) by beating France 9-8 in a real nailbiter of a game worthy of the tournament.

The 2015 was in England and Wales. Sadly for them, the hosts, England did not make it past the pool games! New Zealand retained the cup for the second time in a row. There were some pretty happy Kiwis worldwide!

The next World Cup is to be held in Japan in 2019. The Japanese are bound to host a very enjoyable and well run event.
