With a world-class talent pool, the 2018 Rugby World Cup is just around the corner and with players like Matt Giteau, Matt Gredes, and Matt Todd making their mark on the game, the 2019 World Cup in Japan should be the most anticipated of all the World Cup tournaments.
The Rugby World Series is a unique brand of rugby league and the tournament has been around since 1992.
It’s been a key part of the sport’s evolution, and the first event has been held in England for over 20 years.
But the first Rugby World Championship was held in New Zealand in 2006 and, since then, it’s been held annually in Australia, England, and New Zealand.
However, as we head into the 2019 Rugby World Championships in Japan, we have a new opportunity to bring the tournament to the USA.
We’ve been working hard to get this tournament to America, and with our partners at the USA Rugby Union, we’re confident that we can deliver a truly spectacular event that will attract a massive audience.
Our team at The Rugby Blog has been working closely with our sponsors to deliver a fantastic event that is going to draw an impressive line-up of international talent and an exciting atmosphere in front of millions of fans.
So, to kick off our countdown to the 2019 USRU Rugby World Rugby Championships, let’s take a look at some of the players that we think will make an appearance at this year’s event.
This list is in no particular order, and will be updated as we receive further information.
