We’ve got rugby on the Brains!

We’re thrilled the eighth Rugby World Cup is coming home to England this year. With a month of rugby action to look forward to, Mr Brain’s has been remembering the most iconic moments from the Rugby World Cup archives.

The Rugby World Cup has had a relatively short yet rich and fiercely competitive history, and every tournament has an amazing story to tell.  Who can forget the iconic scene in 1995 when Nelson Mandela handed over the trophy to South African captain, Francois Pienaar? Or the legendary moment Jonah Lomu bulldozed the English backs to score that powerful try for New Zealand?

There are so many great Rugby World Cup moments to choose from, but our favourite by far took place in 2003, when England’s star player Jonny Wilkinson won the tournament with a drop goal just seconds from the end of the nail-biting final in Sydney. This win entered England into the history books as the only northern hemisphere team to have ever won a Rugby World Cup.

The first game of the 2015 Rugby World Cup starts tonight as England play Fiji. We’re looking forward to sitting down with a delicious plate of Mr Brain’s faggots and seeing what this year’s tournament has in store!
