More About England Rugby Union - Warriors and Champions of Sport
Played with 15 players on the field, the first international rugby union match pitted Scotland against the England Rugby Union squad on the 27 of March in 1871. Losing
their first ever game, England Rugby Union has since gone on to win the Six Nations Championships on 26 occasions, 12 of which were Grand Slams. Ranked number four in
the world by the International Rugby Board, the English squad has roots in the early days of rugby union, when public school
boys brought the game from their school grounds to university.
The home ground for England Rugby Union is Twickenham
Stadium, a venue located in South West London. There the team played their first game against Wales in 1910, marking the beginning of a golden era for rugby union in England. Since
then the sport has produced notable England rugby union captains including former President of the Rugby Football Union, William
Wavell Wakefield and former England Rugby Union manager Martin Johnson, both inducted into the International Rugby Hall of
