The ultimate rugby quiz: Surely you won't get 10

BRAINTEASER: Take on @rugby365com‘s oracle Paul Dobson in this challenging quiz!


This World Cup-heavy examination will not just test your rugby knowledge, but gives you a fair chance of getting full marks.

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.

Important notes!

PS: It is a timed quiz, so cheating and making use of Google to search for answers will see you being timed out!

PPS: It is case sensitive – Sydney University, not sydney university.

Good luck and enjoy!
