The Rugby World Cup 2015 is nearly here! Twenty teams battling it out over 6 weeks in thirteen different match venues in England and Wales. The first match will be tomorrow (18th September) with England taking on Fiji at Twickenham. The final will be held on Saturday 31st October, also at Twickenham. It promises to be a great tournament.
