Rugby World Cup 1991

 

The 1991 Rugby World Cup was staged by England with matches also held throughout other countries in Europe. The desire to share in the occasion saw 5 countries — England as hosts with Ireland, Scotland, Wales and France — host matches. As the inaugural 1987 Rugby World Cup was dominated by the eight International Rugby Football Board (IRFB) members at the time, the second tournament would herald the emergence of other countries onto the world stage. A capacity crowd at Twickenham saw Australia win 12-6 against an England team that had suddenly abandoned their feared forward approach to play a running game.
