21/10/2002 : Russia v Ireland (Qualifier)
Excellent condifion programme played at Krasnoyarsk.
Ireland survived a potentially tricky Rugby World Cup 2003 qualifier against Russia in Krasnoyarsk, scoring two tries either side of the break for an unspectacular 35-3 win.
Extremely rare programme as only 200 were printed.
25/10/2003 : Wales v Italy (Signed)
Excellent condition programme from this World Cup match between Wales and Tonga. Played at Canberra Stadium.
Programme, has been signed neatly on individual pen-pcis by the whole Welsh Squad.
29 players in all. Many of these players were stars of Wales' 2005 Grand Slam Victory and several of them have now been selected to tour New Zealand in the Summer with the Briitish and Irish Lions.
All the signatures are across the individual pen-pics - which is a rare occurance these days. Signature Image
22/11/2003 : Australia v England (World Cup Final)
England became the first northern hemisphere side to win the Rugby World Cup, a Jonny Wilkinson drop-goal in the last minute of extra-time handing them a 20-17 win over a game Wallaby side at the Telstra Stadium in Sydney. Very good condition.
The English deserved to raise the Webb Ellis Cup after 100 minutes of drama, excitement, tries (yes, tries!) and bravery, with skipper Martin Johnson quick to pay tribute to his players, the management and a horde of English fans who made the trip out to Australia.
It was a fairytale win for the English, but a win they had to fight for until the bitter end, despite enjoying a 14-5 half-time lead.
