Definitions for "1991 Rugby World Cup"
The 1991 Rugby World Cup was hosted by England with games also held throughout other nations in Europe. The desire to share in the occasion saw five nations — England as hosts with Ireland, Scotland, Wales and France — stage matches. As the inaugural 1987 Rugby World Cup was dominated by the eight International Rugby Football Board (IRFB) members at the time, the second tournament would herald the emergence of other nations onto the world stage.
