Rugby World Cup

The New Inn Hotel
Saturday 19th September - Sunday 11th October 2015

Kingsholm Gloucester

 

Gloucester's ground has an enviable history when it comes to international rugby. Kingsholm hosted its first Test match way back in 1900, when Billy Bancroft led Wales to a 13-3 victory over England. Kingsholm didn't host another international for 91 years and when it did, 12,000 fans watched world champions New Zealand score eight tries as they cruised past the USA 46-6 in RWC 1991 thanks to a hat-trick from full back Terry Wright. It was later the venue for a 2000 Rugby League World Cup match between New Zealand and Lebanon. Home to Aviva Premiership side Gloucester, Kingsholm is widely regarded as having the nosiest crowd in the league, largely due to the boisterous inhabitants of The Shed stand. In 2007 The Shed was redeveloped, increasing the total capacity of the stadium to 16,500.
