Rugby World Cup 2015 on Balls and Brawls

The Rugby World Cup kick-off’s tonight as hosts England take on Fiji, as over the next six weeks 20 nations battle it out but only one will be crowned world champions.

Balls and Brawls will bring you all the action from all the games from this weekend right up to the final on 31 October and here is how we are going to do it.

With the pool stages, Balls and Brawls will bring you a recap of all the action by dividing the fixtures into rounds. For instance England vs Fiji kicks-off this weekend’s action with the first round of fixtures culminating this Sunday. Therefore on Monday, I will bring you a recap from the first eight fixtures.
