Rugby - Cook Cup

Rugby Union's version of the Ashes was inaugurated in 1997, when Australia and England agreed to play each other on an annual basis. The crystal trophy is named after Captain James Cook, who led the first European expedition to Australia, and contested in non-World Cup matches.
In 2004, 2006 and 2010 the cup was decided over a two-match series. In 2016 (in Australia) it was over a three-match series.
The two nations have been playing each other since 1909. Prior to the Cook Cup era, the score was Australia 12 England 7, with no matches drawn.
England won the World Cup matches in 2003 (final) and 2007 (quarter-final), Australia were victorious in the 2015 encounter (Pool stage).
