  Rugby Union World Cup - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Rugby World Cup was originally thought up in late 1983, when the Australian Rugby Union and the New Zealand Rugby Football Union each independently wrote to the International Rugby Board seeking to conduct a World Cup tournament.
In 1985 the IRB approved for the inaugural Rugby World Cup to be jointly staged in Australia and New Zealand during May and June of 1987.
The 2003 Cup was intended to be held jointly by Australia and New Zealand, but disagreements between the International Rugby Board and the NZ Union, over sponsorship, advertising and ticketing, saw the competition relocated to Australia.
