Rugby - World Cup

The Rugby World Cup is now recognised as the third largest sporting event in the world, after the Olympic Games and football World Cup.
It took the rugby authorities many decades to come to agreement on staging a global tournament, with the final impetus being given Australia, New Zealand and France. The British and Irish unions werre implacably opposed until finally enough support was mustered in 1985 to progress with the first tournament two years later.
