History of Rugby
Rugby is said to have originated at Rugby School in Warwickshire, England, in 1823 when during a game of football, William Webb Ellis decided to pick up a ball and go with it. Although there is very little evidence to support this theory, the Rugby World Cup Trophy is now named after William Webb Ellis. In 1863 a collection of boarding schools and clubs decided upon a rule set and 1871 Rugby Football Union was officially formed. That same year, the first ever international match was played between England and Scotland with Scotland taking the win 1-0.
The first Rugby World Cup was played in 1987 and was held in Australia and New Zealand – both semi-finals were played in Australia while the final was played in New Zealand, with the All Blacks defeating France in the final.
