Rugby World Cup 2019 Contenders

20 countries take part in the Rugby World Cup. In the first stage, the 20 teams are divided into 4 pools, each with 5 teams. 10 games are played in each pool and teams are awarded 4 points for a win, 2 points for a draw and 0 for losing. A bonus point is awarded if a team scores four or more tries in a game, or if a team loses by 7 points or less. At the end of the 10 matches, the top two teams in each pool move onto the quarter finals.

The Web Ellis Cup

Webb Ellis cup
What does the winning team take home? The Web Ellis Cup! (photo courtesy of flickr.com/jonlucas/) The cup is named after William Web Ellis, the 16 year old schoolboy from England's Rugby School, who supposedly invented rugby during a football training session in 1823, when he picked up the ball and ran with it!

It's not quite as grand as the Web Ellis Cup, but we have our own gold sports trophy which you can embellish.
