Rugby’s greatest prize, the Webb Ellis Cup, is set to visit Harborough’s Spar store in Coventry Road.

The trophy will be available for viewing tomorrow (Friday, August 14) between 7.30 and 10.15pm as part of a 100-day tour in the lead up to the Rugby World Cup 2015.

Spar manager Tracy Wilson said: “We are very proud to welcome the Webb Ellis Cup to our store and would like to invite all members of the local community to join us for a chance to have their photo taken with the Trophy. This is a real opportunity for us to bring people of all ages together to celebrate the occasion and we are counting down with excitement to the Trophy’s arrival.”

The Trophy will arrive at Twickenham on September 18 ahead of the Rugby World Cup opening ceremony.
