The Webb Ellis Cup completes visit to Dubai as part of Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour
The Webb Ellis Cup has completed its journey around Dubai as part of the Rugby World Cup Trophy Tour. The first day of the visit saw pupils from Rashid School for boys get a chance to see the Trophy. With many of the pupils already playing Rugby, it was an inspirational moment to get so close to the game’s biggest prize. Later that day the Webb Ellis Cup was guest of honour at a reception hosted by the British Embassy which was attended by various members of the local Rugby community. This included a number of previous Rugby World Cup stars including former Wales international, Tom Shanklin, former Scotland international, Rory Lawson and former Samoan international, Apollo Perelini.
