Rugby World Cup fever in Kingsholm

The Rugby world cup has brought some fantastic artwork to Kingsholm – which includes giving the litter bins and phone cabinets a lick of paint!

But it has also emphasised Gloucester’s enthusiasm for rugby and its rugby heritage which is already widely acknowledged. In 2008, the Gloucester Rugby Football Community Heritage project began, aiming to capture, preserve, celebrate and share Gloucester’s rich rugby heritage, revealing its impact and importance for the city and the county.

And although many Gloucester players have played in the World Cup, for a number of international sides, none will be representing Japan. So with one more international match to play at Kingsholm, it’s Ganbatte Nippon!
