Where can I find information about the Rugby World Cup 2015?

LEVEL: Intermediate

The Rugby World Cup occurs every four years and the 2015 competition will be played in England and Wales. 

World sporting events will usually have an official website and 2015 Rugby World Cup is the best place to check for up to the minute information. 

Looking at the New Zealand Rugby Union site you will find a link to a dedicated All Blacks website which has information on the New Zealand squad. To check out details of your favourite players scroll down the page and find the list of names. 

For further information about New Zealand and the Rugby World Cup, have a look at one of our recommended sites, DigitalNZ. This is a search site that focuses on New Zealand history and brings together results from lots of different websites. It’s an easy way of searching online resources from New Zealand libraries, museums, universities and government sites all at once, and has lots of primary sources.

The results are grouped by the type of information, like images, videos, newspapers, articles and research papers. Use the search box and enter the keywords 'Rugby world cup'; to limit your results to a manageable number you may like to add '2015'. 

HOT TIP: The National Library’s Services to Schools website has a page of High Interest Topics, including one on the 2015 Rugby World Cup. You will find a list of reliable websites here on many aspects of the Rugby World Cup, including links to the social networking sites. 

In the lead up to the event there will be a lot of media interest - for video footage check out the television channels; TVNZ for example does have a dedicated page for rugby information. If you want to have a look at what is being reported in print format have a look at either Stuff or maybe Scoop. Both of these New Zealand websites cover the latest news. Use the search box and enter the keywords 'rugby world cup'. For a non New Zealand view of the event consider having a look at the rugby pages of Fox Sports in Australia, or the BBC

The host countries will see the event as a great opportunity to promote tourism along with the rugby and as such both England and Wales will be expecting an influx of visitors who will be doing some travelling as well rugby watching. 

You may also want to consider checking out the sports section at your local public library. As well as books on playing rugby and the rules of the sport, you should be able to find some biographies of past and present players who will have appeared in World Cup matches.
