The cup that is won at the end of a Rugby world cup final is called The "Webb-Ellis Cup" Which is named after the great rugby player and the founder of rugby William Webb-Ellis. Some Biographist wrote "Whilst playing football, William caught the ball up in his arms, and instead of retiring back or punting forward, he rushed forward with the ball in his hands." This was at Rugby School and was the birthplace of the game.

The Webb Ellis trophy, or Rugby World Cup trophy, is named after William Webb Ellis, who is often credited with inventing the sport of Rugby.

One football match at Rugby University in Warwickshire, England, Webb Ellis decided he was bored with kicking the ball around, picked it up and ran with it. This rule-breaker had just laid the base foundations for the sport of Rugby Union, and thus the trophy is named after him.
