Country: United Kingdom
Date of Cover: 18th September 2015 (first day cover)

Stamp Details

The stamps are described on the Royal Mail website:

Top row, left to right

  • Tackle
  • Scrum
  • Try
  • Conversion

Bottom row, left to right

  • Pass
  • Drop goal
  • Ruck
  • Line-out

These stamps are very dramatic and capture the sport well. But I can’t help thinking that some colour would have been nice.

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.
