This cover from Royal Mail commemorates the 2015 Rugby World Cup, hosted by England.
Country: United Kingdom
Date of Cover: 18th September 2015 (first day cover)
The stamps are described on the Royal Mail website:
Top row, left to right
Bottom row, left to right
- Drop goal
These stamps are very dramatic and capture the sport well. But I can’t help thinking that some colour would have been nice.
For more information about the tournament, go to www.rugbyworldcup.com.
In time-honoured tradition, the insert to cover provides a tournament wall chart.
And England are out of the competition already, before the group stage is over. First host nation to do that, ever.
