Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour

Jonny Wilkinson and Prince Harry have launched the Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour to mark 100 days until the 2015 tournament begins.

The tour is celebrating England’s hosting of the event and aims to give as many people as possible a chance to see the Webb Ellis rugby trophy for themselves in the build up to the biggest tournament in the rugby calendar.

The trophy will tour Scotland, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland, Wales and England spending five, five, five, ten and 75 days in each of those countries respectively. Its final destination will be the opening ceremony on 18 September.
