England 2015 Rugby World Cup 'to build on Olympic spirit'

Chief executive of the International Rugby Board Brett Gosper and chairman of England 2015 Andy Coslett say they hope the Rugby World Cup can make use of the Olympic stadium and engage the public as the 2012 Games did.

Tuesday, 18 September 2012 marks three years until the start of the tournament, where England will be sole hosts for the first time - having previously been joint hosts in 1991.

Gosper adds that he hopes the row between European Rugby Cup (ERC) and Premier Rugby over TV rights can soon be resolved, ahead of the ERC stakeholder meeting on Tuesday in Dublin.
