Members will have the chance to view rugby union’s legendary Webb Ellis Cup up close when the trophy visits the Club for an evening.
As part of a 100-day Japan tour ahead of the start of the Rugby World Cup in Japan on September 20, the cup will be on display in the first-floor Family Lobby on July 24.
Named after William Webb Ellis, the purported schoolboy inventor of the sport, the trophy has been presented to the winner of the World Cup since the first tournament in 1987.
The winning team of this year’s competition will lift the cup on November 2 in Yokohama.
This is the ninth edition of the Rugby World Cup and the first time for it to be hosted in Japan.
