Rugby quiz: How well do you know your stadiums?
BRAINTEASER: @rugby365com‘s oracle Paul Dobson has decided to make this a bit easier, so can you at least get 50 percent?
This collection focuses a bit more on stadiums, so perhaps you can get 100 percent.
You will see your score at the end of the quiz and can challenge your friends and rivals.
We will provide the answers to this quiz in the next one, so you can see what the correct answers were.
Be honest and do it on your own and get your own score, not google’s answers! Nobody needs to know your score except you yourself, but it may stimulate an interest in rugby’s history.
PS: It is a timed quiz, so cheating and making use of Google to search for answers will see you being timed out!
Good luck and enjoy!
