★ What is the Webb Ellis Cup?

The Webb Ellis Cup is the trophy bestowed upon the winners of the Rugby World Cup final. The gilded-silver cup has a handle adorned with the head of a satyr and another with the head of nymph and is decorated with a bearded mask, a lion mask and a grapevine motif.
The cup was named after William Webb Ellis, who supposedly originated the game in 1823 as a young boy attending Rugby School in England.
