Currently ranked fourth in the IRB rankings, England’s recent performance has proved that they are currently the best team to come out of Europe. They contest the Six Nations competition, along with the Calcutta Cup against Scotland and the Millennium Trophy against Ireland, the two latter competitions played within the Six Nations. With England Rugby tickets are sure to sell quickly, so grab them while you still can!
The history of the national team goes all the way back to 1871 when they lost 1-0 against Scotland in their very first test match. The Six Nations, or the Home Nations Championship as it was then known, began twelve years later in 1883. England´s biggest home-rivals are Wales, while matches against their rivals across the Equator against the likes of Australia's Wallabies and New Zealand's All Blacks are always an exciting.
England’s home is Twickenham Stadium in south London, the largest stadium in the world devoted to just rugby. It is the second largest stadium in the UK and the fifth in Europe. In 2009/2010 the Rugby Football Union celebrated Twickenham´s centenary. A recent trip to Sudamerica XV, the South American tour, saw them play with phenomenal success. Beating the Pumas 26-51, the victory follows from three other victories during the tour, meaning a straight victory. A feat even more impressive as England played with many a man down due to the Lions tour coinciding, coupling that with many of their best players being rested, the England Roses still proved it was a force to be reckoned with despite the handicap.
With such promising results and potential, it isn’t difficult to work out how they’ve achieved their number four ranking. So get your England tickets here at StubHub now!
