These challenges include giving a passionate rendition of a Rugby World Cup team’s national anthem, offering some words of inspiration and advice to one of the nations’ captains or telling Land Rover how they would welcome a visiting Rugby World Cup nation to England for the Tournament.

They will be judged by Rugby World Cup 2003 winners Moody and Jason Robinson.
