The Official Online RBS 6 Nations Store is open. The store has everything you need to get behind your team during the RBS 6 Nations, plus the store is now fully stocked with a much wider range of rugby merchandise.
RFU chairman Martyn Thomas said: “The RFU is delighted that Rugby World Cup Limited has decided to recommend England to the IRB council.
“When we presented to the council in May we said that in the current difficult economic environment we could deliver a low risk, high return tournament that would leave a lasting legacy for the global game.
“We would like to reiterate that commitment and promise that we will pack iconic stadia full of excited fans and that we will give the game the best possible global platform on which to showcase itself to the world.
“We are truly excited about the opportunity to host the third largest sporting tournament in the world and fervently hope that the recommendation is accepted in July.”
