Scrum down for the 2015 Rugby World Cup

Posted September 15, 2015 - Blog Posts

The wait is almost over, the Rugby World Cup is set to return to its roots. As hosts, much is expected from England. Under the stewardship of Stuart Lancaster, the Red Rose are playing a more attractive and expansive style of rugby which has seen them installed as second favourites to win the tournament – with New Zealand odds-on to defend their title.

However, there’ll be 19 other teams standing in the way of both sides and the coveted Web Ellis Trophy. Home Nations Ireland, Scotland, and Wales will all be expected to put on a good show. This really promises to be one of the most tightly contested World Cups ever.
