Rugby World Cup 2015

 














September to October 2015 will see the 8th Rugby World Cup, held around the UK, with only two club rugby grounds chosen to host out of a total of 13 venues.  The opening game will take place at Twickenham on September 18th.  Having beaten off rival buds from Japan, Italy and South Africa, England will see twelve stadia used, with one stadium, the Millennium Stadium in Wales also hosting.  England automatically qualify as the host nation, and the final 20 teams taking part are:
