Watch: Spain's Speech Shows How Much Rugby World Cup Means To Them

Watch: Spain's Speech Shows How Much Rugby World Cup Means To Them
By Maurice Brosnan

Rugby is on the rise in Spain.

After Los Leones 84-10 victory against Germany last weekend, the Spanish national team are just one win away from the Rugby World Cup. The final round of the Rugby Europe Championship will be played this weekend and should they be successful against Belgium in Brussels, Spain will proceed to take Europe 1's place in Pool A, alongside Ireland, Scotland, Japan and the play-off winner.

The Spanish side recorded their second largest score ever last weekend, and there is no doubt they were up for it.

 

The sport has also started to capture the public's attention within the country.

Spain have only competed in the World Cup once, in 1999, when they lost every game. However, they are now 19th in the World Rankings, above Canada and one place below Uruguay.

Should Spain win, it would mean Romania and Portugal would play in a playoff with the winner playing Samoa to determine who takes the final spot in Ireland's group.
