World Cup Trivia Quiz

Put a quiz together for something else, thought I'd share it here to kill the time between team announcements and games. Don't use google or look at anyone else's answers, your knowledge only please. Entries shut at 4:30pm BST, results out at 5pm.

Round 1: (no negative marking)

1a - Which year had the highest scoring final? (1 point)
1b - What was the exact score? (1 point)

2 - Which is the only team to win a game to-nil and lose a game to-nil? (1 point)

3 - Three matches have occurred twice in the same World Cup? Name all 3 matches with their year (3 points)

4 - Which player scored the first World Cup final conversion this millennium and in what year? (1 point)

Round 2: (negative marking in place)

5 - Name EITHER the youngest try scorer in a World Cup game OR the oldest try scorer in a World Cup game (2 points for correct, -2 for incorrect)

6 - name a country that has only ever appeared in 1 World Cup between 1987 - 2015 inclusive (1 point for correct, -1 for incorrect).

7 - name a country that has appeared at a World Cup and never won a game (2 points for correct, -2 for incorrect)

8 - name a country that has appeared at every World Cup and never qualified from the groups (1 point for correct, -1 for incorrect)

9 - name a country that has qualified for the quarter finals on at least 1 occasion and never progressed further (2 points for correct, -2 for incorrect)

10 - name a country that has appeared in at least 1 World Cup final and never won it (1 point for correct, -1 for incorrect)

Round 3: numbers round (no negative marking)

11 - the record World Cup attendance was for Ireland vs Romania in 2015. What was this attendance to the closest thousand (2 points for correct, 1 either side)

12 - the record for conversions in a match was Simon Culhane vs Japan in 1995. How many did he kick? (2 points for correct, 1 either side)

13 - the biggest winning margin in a World Cup match was Australia vs Namibia in 2003. What was the winning margin? (3 points for correct, 2 point for within 2, 1 point for within 5)

Bonus: (read marking guidelines)

14 - how many times have a team not in the current Rugby Championship or Six Nations beat a team that is in the current Rugby Championship or Six Nations? (you get 5 bonus points if you get the answer exactly correct, you get 0 if you leave it blank and if you get it wrong you will lose points. You will lose 1 point for every game away you are)

Tiebreaker

If there is a tie with the winners of the quiz, then the tiebreaker will be used. Closest to the pin wins. Answer this now but it will not be used unless necessary.

15 - What was the attendance at the first Rugby World Cup final?

Assuming you're on the desktop version, there's an icon with a notepad and a yellow exclamation mark in the 3rd cluster of options in the formatting thing above the box where you type out your post

Type your answers between the two sets of square brackets

I can't give you the correct answer to 11 but I can say I was there and by the end of the evening I feel I was freinds with every single person who attended.
Also drank a very small pub dry of Guinness after. Well me and a few hundred other Irish men. And one cute Portuguese girl

You're the true winner of this quiz.

A little bump for this before the deadline as well, 16 is the current score to beat.

Tigertattie - 16
Fluxy - 15
LondonTiger - 14

The tiebreaker wasn't needed, but as it happens Tigertattie was also closest.
