This blog has been a rugby-free zone so far.......no longer! The IRB announced in Dublin this afternoon that England has been awarded the rights to stage the 2015 Rugby World Cup AND we will also host the Rugby League World Cup in 2013. This is fantastic news.

Two thoughts: Let's hope that the organisers have learnt a lesson from the recent Lions games in South Africa, where many thousands of seats went unsold, and prepare their business plans accordingly. And, is this another reason why the new Olympic stadium may not after all be reduced in size after the 2012 games?

A very happy Toby travelling back from Marseille, where England have just beaten Australia in the 2007 RWC.
