    Rugby World Cup 2015

    England's pool - Wales, Australia and Fiji... followed by either Russia or Uruguay. Russia won the first leg 22-21 yesterday in Siberia. Tough group, though think home advantage at Twickenham will see us through. Other venues: Wembley, Stadium MK, Olympic Stadium, Brighton Community Stadium...
