The tournament is one of the largest international sporting competitions in the world, with England as the current world champion having won the 2003 tournament in Australia. The Webb Ellis Cup is presented to winners of the Rugby World Cup, named after William Webb Ellis, who is credited with creating the game of rugby football. The trophy is also referred as the Rugby World Cup. It was chosen in 1987 as an appropriate cup for the competition.
