Rugby may not have been invented in New Zealand, but it’s arguably been perfected there. The All Blacks have participated in four Rugby World Cup Finals, winning the Webb Ellis Cup on three occasions. Aside from a surprising quarterfinal defeat to France in 2007, New Zealand has finished no worse than fourth since 1987.
