Rugby World Cup History
The first edition of the Rugby World Cup took place in 1987, hosted by New Zealand. It was also won by New Zealand when they beat France 29-9 at Eden Park. Much like the 1991 Rugby World Cup the tournament took place before the professional era.
Due to apartheid South Africa could not attend the first two World Cup tournaments. They are largely seen as the best side in the world, or at the very least, the only side that could match the mighty All Blacks.
That was however chucked out the window in 1991 when Australia beat England 12-6 in the final at Twickenham. As 1995 approached South Africa’s government was removed and they were back on the international circuit.
South Africa did not only host the 1995 showpiece event but also won it, beating New Zealand 15-12 in the final at Ellis Park in Johannesburg.
The game also became professional in 1995 which meant rugby went to a whole new sphere over the next decade. 1999 was won by Australia in England before England claimed the title in Australia in 2003. 2007 saw South Africa march to the title in France while New Zealand eventually won it again in 2011 when they hosted it for the second time.
New Zealand had been the best team in the world for years and went into each World Cup as favourites, bar maybe 2003 when England won it. After numerous surprise exits from World Cup’s New Zealand defended their 2011 title in 2015 at Twickenham.
But it was not to be a hat-trick of titles as England upset New Zealand in the 2019 Rugby World Cup semi final. South Africa eventually beat England 32-12 in the 2019 final in Yokohama, Japan.
Japan was the first tournament to be hosted by a country other than what is considered the big rugby nations. 2023 will see France host their second World Cup after beating South Africa to the hosting rights by one vote.
