Product Description

You'll love this because...

Relive the exciting history of the Rugby World Cup with newspaper clippings featuring coverage of the historic event as it happened.

  • Personalise with any name and message
  • Handbound hardback covers
  • Tabloid size editions with colour pages available from 2006 onwards
  • Option to present in a luxurious gift box
  • Incredible newspaper coverage from 1906 to the present day

Relive all the most memorable moments in World Cup history through newspaper clippings in this personalised Rugby World Cup book. With coverage beginning in 1987, the year of the inaugural tournament, this fine piece of Rugby World Cup memorabilia takes you through all eight tournaments, revisiting all the key moments from Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Europe, right up until the present day.

After decades of suggestion and speculation, the inception of a Rugby Union World Cup was finally agreed upon by IRFB delegates in 1985. Two years later, the first Rugby World Cup took place, hosted by Australia and New Zealand. The latter would ultimately win the inaugural tournament, defeating France 29-9 in the final. New Zealand would go on to capture the Webb Ellis Cup twice more, becoming the first team the win the trophy three times, while France would fall short again in two more finals. Australia won the first of their two World Cups in 1991 with a win over England in England, with the exact opposite result occurring in the 2003 final, as England avenged the defeat on Australia soil. The other World Cup champion to date is South Africa, which has won the trophy twice, in 1995 and 2007.

Take a look at the contents to see which historic moments are captured.

Very happy with the book

Very happy with the book. Bought for my granddaughter's 5th birthday. She was delighted and so surprised to see her name, her photograph and a message from granny and grampa inside. A very special keepsake.

I always read reviews before purchasing…

I always read reviews before purchasing anything online and I was a bit sceptical about a purchase because of a couple of reviews I read. When I received my order, I couldn't have been happier! The quality was just as I had hoped, beautiful and personalized. It will make the perfect gift!!

The book is great

The book is great. My 8 year old grandson loves it. Unfortunately due to an error on my part, the photo I uploaded was erased somehow.

Perfect! Cannot fault this experience at all

I came across this site, without ever hearing of it before! Thanks to Google ads! So glad I clicked the link as I found the perfect book for a little boys birthday present - it was a dinosaur book, personalised! Was really happy with the quality of the book, I was a bit nervous about how the photo would come out but it was clear and the perfect size! Delivery was quicker than expected. Overall happy with the product and customer service! I have recommended this to friends
