  • Handbound hardback covers

  • 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.
