World Rugby Reveals Physical Hall Of Fame Details
World Rugby will be opening an interactive rugby museum located at the birthplace of the sport in England.
The physical Hall of Fame which will be opened officially on November 17 in the presence of some all-time greats of the game.
It will form a major part of the newly created Rugby Art Gallery and Museum in Rugby town, England and will be opened by World Rugby Chairman and former England captain Bill Beaumont.
Also in attendance will be World Rugby Vice-Chairman and Hall of Famer Agustín Pichot and World Rugby Chief Executive Brett Gosper.
The occasion will be marked with the induction of 12 greats into the Hall of Fame who will receive their commemorative cap and gold pin.
“After extensive planning, we will soon have a permanent and physical World Rugby Hall of Fame, which will celebrate the sport’s rich tradition and history while also providing inspiration for the current and future generations of players, officials and supporters of the game.
“And how appropriate it is for the museum to be based in the town of Rugby, where it all began nearly 200 years ago. It really is a momentous occasion of our sport and I hope that people from all over the world will flock to visit the Hall of Fame and learn more about rugby, its journey and its future direction.
