Map of nations best results, excluding nations which unsuccessfully participated in qualifying tournaments.

The All Blacks have played a total of 43 matches in the seven Rugby World Cup tournaments. They were the only team who had made it to all the semi-finals at the world cup between 1987 and 2003. They are also the only team never to have lost a pool game and to have always qualified in first place from every group. New Zealand has won the tournament twice, in 1987 and 2011 both of which they had hosted.
