Their best ever position was first in 2003, whilst they have also participated in the 2007 final and the final of the 1991 competition. They have beaten three countries three times; Australia, France and the United States. Their worst record is against New Zealand whom they have never beaten in three matches, and South Africa who have defeated them in three of their four encounters.

England co-hosted the 1991 Rugby World Cup with Ireland, Scotland, Wales and France, with the final between England and Australia played at Twickenham. England will be the sole host of the 2015 Rugby World Cup, although one game is planned to be held at the Millennium Stadium, the Welsh national stadium, in Cardiff.
