The 2011 Churchill Cup, the ninth and final edition of an annual international rugby union tournament, took place in Northampton, Esher, Gloucester and Worcester. This was just the second time in the tournament's history in which England played host.

Competitors[edit]

The three regular participants in the event — the senior national sides of the USA and Canada, and England's "A" (second-level) national side, the England Saxons, were joined by second year participants Russia and two first-time competitors: Italy A and Tonga. England Saxons fielded a very young, promising team, while Italy A picked a very experienced side, with many of the regulars for the main national team.

Format[edit]

The teams played in a round-robin format between two pools to decide the elimination matches. All six teams participate on the finals day: the two pool winners will compete in the Cup Final, the two runners-up will play in a Plate Final, and the two bottom-placed teams will meet in the Bowl Final.

Venues[edit]

The pool rounds were played at Franklin's Gardens in Northampton, Molesey Road in Esher and Kingsholm Stadium in Gloucester. The finals were played at Sixways Stadium in Worcester.
