Rugby World Cup 2015 – Royal Mail First Day Cover

The new Royal Mail First Day Cover is dedicated to the Rugby World Cup 2015, which this year is held in England. The eight stamp collection conveys the excitement and skill of rugby union, according to the postal service. The images in this collection depict a number of moves and setpieces, including a tackle, a scrum, a try and a line-out. According to Andrew Hammond, who is the director of Royal Mail Stamps and Collectibles, ‘these stamps portray a real sense of the gritty dynamism of the game. It’s fitting we issue a set of stamps to celebrate rugby coming home and at the same time show that stamps are great markers in time of major international events such as Rugby World Cup 2015.’
