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. South Africa recently completed their hat-trick with a surprising third victory over England in November 2019.

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

Delayed delivery and book cover was damaged

There were delays with delivery but this was due to Covid-19 restrictions. Would’ve appreciated an email to update me about this. The book was nice however, I was slightly disappointed that the cover had scratch marks on it and slightly damaged at the corners. Overall, lovely gift idea but disappointed about the damages considering how expensive the product is.

Wonderful book for my great nephew

Wonderful book for my great nephew, he will be delighted with it. I have purchased personalised books from you previously, and have always been delighted with the quality of these books. Thankyou!

nicola roberts Trustpilot product review 4 star rating 16 Jan 2021

Great book

The book itself is an amazing gift but I thought the name would automatically be printed on the front of the book. I didn't realise you had to pay extra. Instead my message had been printed onto a square of paper and glued onto the page inside the book. Bit tacky!!

Krystal O’Donnell Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 15 Jan 2021

I thought there would be a delay…

I thought there would be a delay getting my book to Australia due to the pandemic. But there wasn’t! From the moment I purchased my item the process was prompt and seamless

John Gibbs Trustpilot product review 5 star rating 15 Jan 2021

Our grand-daughter was delighted!

Delivered ahead of schedule which was excellent. The book is well produced, colourful and entertaining and our grand-daughter loved seeing her name repeatedly included in the story.
