Rugby World Cup 2019

Posted on: 25 September 2019


The ninth Rugby World Cup 2019 is now underway in Japan.

20 teams are set to scrum, kick and tackle it out over 48 matches until the champions are crowned on 2nd November in Yokohama. 

Just four teams have won the World Cup since its inception in 1987, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand and of course England back in 2003. Based on pre-tournament rankings this year, Ireland and New Zealand should battle it out in the final, with England and South Africa completing the semi-final teams.

After a fabulous summer of sport can a home nation lift a World Cup this autumn too?

However, if we based results on PROPERTY PRICE GROWTH, the competition would look quite different.

With annual growth of 4.2%, Wales would top the podium in a hotly contested match against South Africa.

Australia and England would struggle past the group stages.
