One Photo From New Zealand Shows The Country's Dominance Of World Rugby
By Daniel Kelly

Rugby union is the national sport of New Zealand.

For a country of under 5,000,000 people, they know how to dominate the sport.

Last month's Women's Rugby World Cup win, completed an unprecedented achievement for New Zealand Rugby. They now own all five available World Cups that are available in the sport.

In June 2013, the mens' and women's Sevens teams both won the World Cup in Russia. They will defend their titles next year in San Francisco.

Just over two years later, the All Blacks retain the World Cup, in London. They will be proud owners of the Webb Ellis Cup for another two years.

In June, the Under-20s side regained the World title in Georgia. They had lost the title in 2016, but defeated England this summer in the Final. That title will be defended in Argentina next summer.

With four of a possible five World Cups taking up residence in New Zealand, the women's team completed the clean sweep in Belfast when they defeated England.

The country is guaranteed all five trophies until next season. The men's sevens team is most likely to their crown next year in San Francisco.

Either way, it's some achievement for the country.
