The Rugby World Cup final is the last match of the international rugby union competition established in 1987. The Rugby World Cup is contested by the men's national teams of the member unions of the sport's governing body, World Rugby, and takes place every four years. The winning team in the final is declared world champion and receives the Webb Ellis Cup. The winners of the first final were New Zealand, who beat France 29–9; they are also the only team to have won consecutive tournaments, with their victories in the 2011 and 2015 Rugby World Cup (2011 New Zealand team pictured).
