The Rugby World Cup is the premier event for international team sport, and the twenty-first edition will be hosted in New Zealand. The Southern Hemisphere country has a long history of winning the tournament, and the team will be looking to make it a record-smashing six times. Throughout the tournament, each team will play a number of key matches, which will determine who advances to the quarter-finals.
The tournament first started in 1987, and was co-hosted by New Zealand and Australia. Since then, four countries have claimed the trophy: Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa. The current champions, Australia, are the reigning world champions. During the first tournament, sixteen nations competed. The format has grown since that time to twenty teams, with more countries participating each year. Japan hosted the Rugby World Cup this year, while France will host the next one in 2023.
The sport became a professional sport after 1995, and the tournament expanded from 16 to 20 teams. Two World Cup tournaments were lopsided, with two teams scoring over a hundred points. Australia’s 142-0 win over Namibia in 2003 remains the highest scoring game in World Cup history. But the game isn’t just about scores.

A Rugby World Cup tournament is a big event for both teams. It involves women’s rugby as well as men’s rugby. Women’s teams play rugby as a separate sport, but both competitions are dominated by men. A woman’s team might even dominate the competition in the women’s division. But whichever team wins the women’s tournament, it’s worth watching. If you love rugby, there’s no better time to make your decision.
