Best Answer

Supposedly, third? most watched after soccer (of course), and the Olympics. But I'm not positive.

Rugby is the 2nd most popular sport in the world statistically in support and participation followed by cricket and then tennis.

The Rugby World Cup is the 3rd largest sporting event in the world behind the Olympics and Soccer World Cup.
