Rugby World Cup 2015 Draw

Despite the draw for Rugby World Cup 2015 being streamed live on rugbyworldcup.com there were complaints from some who were unable to watch it. Problems with internet speed or connection meant some were unable to watch it live and instead followed on social media such as facebook and twitter. For those who missed out there is no need to worry as there are videos available now for your viewing. 

The draw produced some surprizes with a horror scenario for the host nation as England will face two Tier One sides in Pool A. The tournament will be held in England but not entirely. Like Rugby World Cup 2007 which was hosted by France there will be matches staged outside of the host nation. While France was the core nation there were two matches played in Scotland and four played in Wales. For Rugby World Cup 2015 Wales is looking to host up to eight matches. With hosts England and subhosts Wales drawn together in Pool A there is a controversy and the WRU is doing its best to try to host Wales´s pool matches. Wales is already pushing to host its games against heavyweights Australia and England. A decision will be made in March with an official announcement being made of the match venues for all forty-eight games of England 2015.
