Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from the World Rugby Museum!


This Christmas Card was designed for the Rugby Football Union by Cyril Kenneth Bird (1887-1965), better known as ‘Fougasse’. Injured at Gallipoli, Bird began a long association with Punch magazine in 1916 and became one of Britain’s best loved cartoonists.

You can see more Fougasse rugby cartoons at the PUNCH Magazine Cartoon Archive.

The World Rugby Museum would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year going into 2016!
