As we approach New Years Eve, the holiday season is almost over so we look forward to a big 2011, with plenty of fantastic rugby action coming up as well as a few big changes on RD. For now, here’s the next in the popular History of Rugby series.
It’s been a slow few weeks in terms of fresh content on Rugbydump, but family visits and festive banter is now all but over, so the site will be back in business shortly, with daily updates and the best clips from around the world brought to you regularly.
In 2011 we’ve got the World Cup in New Zealand, so before we look forward, lets take a look back to the last time the All Blacks won the tournament, in 1987. We also get to see the 1991 tournament, when the Wallabies won the first of their two titles.
Two great captains, David Kirk and Nick Farr Jones, lifted the trophies in ’87 and ’91 respectively, and obviously going into 2011 we’re all wondering if the host nation, led by Richie McCaw, can break the long drought for the Kiwis.
Following this post, we’ll keep the series coming as other parts are posted over time. Have a watch and feel free to discuss your predictions for next years tournament. Can New Zealand handle the pressure at home, or will it be another of the top ranked sides that manages to shatter the dream for the host nation?
