WORLD RUGBY MUSEUM

 

Welcome to the World Rugby Museum, an on-line look at the history of Rugby Football. We are in the early stages of developing the museum and at present our pages relate to the memorabilia in our collection. The museum will grow and it will encompass the facts, statistics, stories and images of the sport. It is an ever expanding encyclopaedia. We will eventually cover both codes but at present are concentrating on the larger of the two codes, Rugby Union. The World Rugby Museum is not confined to the world wide web, we also have partners on the ground displaying our extensive collection of memorabilia. Please click on the links below for more information on the World Rugby Museum or scroll down to view our exhibits and the items in our collection.
