Writing in 2008 the authors of the Putting Rugby First report noted that ‘the IRB’s commitment to internationalization is not consistent with its decisions on the location of its flagship event, the RWC – which has never been held outside a Foundation Union’ (Spectrum Value Partners and Addleshaw Goddard, 2008: p. 6). Interestingly, and as noted previously, one of the key recommendations following the first world cup was that all future tournaments should be held solely in one country and that joint bids should be discouraged.
In the next section I identify key texts that form the base upon which all further works were developed and then refer to some of the important research undertaken in relation to rugby to date within specific nations. Much of this literature is drawn from the sociology of sport although I also incorporate work outside of this and also make reference to sports history scholarship, research from the field of sports management and wider works from a variety of other disciplines. Dunning and Sheard’s (1979) Barbarians, Gentlemen and Players provided an important moment in the academic study of the sport.
In 2007 Argentina became the first team from outside the eight foundation unions to advance to the semi-finals of the competition. In fact during the whole history of the tournament only 22 nations have competed in the finals. This contrasts markedly to the FIFA World Cup where in the same period 56 different nations have taken part in the finals. Argentina’s success might also be construed as occurring in spite of, rather than as a result of, any strategic development initiatives from those involved in the governance of the international game.
