The 1991 Rugby World Cup was jointly hosted by England, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and France. As the final was played at Twickenham, it is often erroneously assumed that England were the sole hosts. The desire to share the tournament between five rugby nations remains the most complicated hosting arrangement of the tournament to date, and it is not likely that it will ever be repeated. As the inaugural 1987 Rugby World Cup was dominated by the seven International Rugby Football Board (IRFB) members at the time, the second tournament would herald the emergence of other nations onto the world stage. A capacity crowd at Twickenham saw Australia triumph 12-6 against an England side that had suddenly abandoned their forward approach to play a running game.
