The history of the trophy everyone wants to lift at #RWC2019

The silver gilt cup was made in 1906, a copy of an 18th century original, and was stored in a vault at London jewellers Garrard’s until it was chosen as the trophy for the inaugural Rugby World Cup in 1987.

It is named after William Webb Ellis, who picked up a football and ran with it during a match at Rugby School in 1823 - an incident credited as the birth of rugby football.
