    Rugby World Cup trivia

    I'll set the ball rolling. The person with the correct answer puts up the next question, unless they want to pass on that option.


    Who was the player from a Home Nations team who played in both the 1987 and 1999 Rugby World Cups (but not the ones inbetween)?

    I'd guess someone who went to league in the intervening years. Allan Bateman?

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    I can only think of rank obvious ones just now. Anyway:

    I set a world cup (& world) record on my international debut. Who am I?

    That's the fella. 45 points (IIRC) on his first test appearance, which is a record that still stands. His 20 conversions is probably still a record too.

    You're up.
