International Rugby Hall of Fame


International Rugby Hall of Fame

The International Rugby Hall of Fame (IRHOF) is a hall of fame for rugby union. It was created in 1997 in New Zealand and is run as a charitable trust with an address at Chiswick in London. Most of the trustees are also inductees. IRHOF accepts new inductees every two years. Most inductees are former players, but others who have contributed to the game are eligible.
