This tournament does not have a long history, as the first tournament was held in 1987 and co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand. However, this tournament has become one of the most popular sporting events in the world, and the number of Rugby World Cup bets is rapidly increasing.
Winners of this tournament are given the William Webb Ellis Cup. This cup was named after a rugby player who is believed to have invented the game.
The rise in popularity of this tournament has prompted sportsbooks like 888sport to allow players to place a Rugby World Cup bet as an online free bet. Rugby betting has never been more popular as the highlights of the game can be seen by fans all over the world.
At 888sport, we also take care of our existing customers, so be sure to keep an eye out for our Rugby betting promotions.
