Rugby World Cup 2015

Back in 2011, New Zealand hosted a scintillating Rugby World Cup in which countries across the globe fought furiously for two months in a bid to become World Champions. After 48 matches, 262 tries, and nearly half a million fans cheering their team on, the hosts came out victorious for the first time since the inaugural competition in 1987. Now, four years on from the last tournament,

20 of the best rugby nations are ready to do it all again. And with this year's competition hosted across the UK, you can see all the action live yourself.

The 2015 Rugby World Cup kicks-off on 18 September 2015 and concludes with the final at Twickenham Stadium on 31 October 2015.

The tournament is set to be played in thirteen world-class venues across England, as well as the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff. These great sporting arenas mark the perfect stage for rugby's biggest icons. From the likes of sensational fly-half Dan Carter, to England's very own star fullback Mike Brown, the talent likely to be on display is unprecedented.

Under the leadership of coach Stuart Lancaster, England are starting to build a very competitive and skilful rugby side. Their arsenal of talented backline players together with a very solid, powerful pack of forwards gives the host nation a very good chance of advancing far into the competition, so make sure you are there to it watch it all unfold.

With the worldwide standard of rugby constantly increasing, there promises to be no easy games in a tournament certain to be packed with drama and entertainment.
