Rugby. Perdu depuis 15 ans, le trophée de la Coupe du monde féminine retrouvé dans un grenier
© MICHAEL BRADLEY / AFP La Coupe du monde de rugby féminine est une copie de celle qui avait été égarée.

Le trophée originel de la Coupe du monde de rugby féminine, égaré depuis quinze ans, a été retrouvé par hasard dans le grenier des parents d’un ancien administrateur.

Une histoire pour le moins rocambolesque. Le trophée de la première Coupe du monde de rugby féminine a été retrouvé dans un grenier, après avoir disparu pendant quinze ans, a annoncé jeudi la fédération anglaise de rugby. Le trophée avait été exposé dans un musée londonien entre deux tournées, avant de se volatiliser.

« La coupe a circulé, a été au musée, puis est repartie en tournée. Et quelques années plus tard, nous avons commencé à dire, eh bien, nous ne savons pas du tout où est passée la Coupe du monde », a raconté Gillian Burns, vainqueure du Mondial en 1994 avec l’Angleterre, dans une vidéo postée sur Twitter par la Fédération anglaise de rugby.

After 15 years it’s finally been found!

La coupe a été retrouvée par un ancien administrateur qui nettoyait le loft de ses parents « il y a quelques semaines », et qui est tombé sur des cahiers de notes, des posters et la récompense, au chaud dans sa boîte.

Elle avait été remplacée par une copie lors des dernières éditions.

Back to Twickenham

Le tout premier Mondial avait été remporté par les États-Unis en 1991, puis par l’Angleterre en 1994.

« C’est vraiment très émouvant de la retrouver après tant d’années », a confié Gillian Burns. « Je savais qu’elle n’avait pas disparu ! », s’est enthousiasmée Sarah Hunter, l’actuelle capitaine du XV de la Rose.

Cette coupe originelle sera à nouveau exposée au musée World Rugby de Twickenham, et ne devrait pas remplacer l’actuelle. La prochaine édition du Mondial aura lieu en Nouvelle-Zélande en 2022 (8 octobre – 12 novembre 2022).

L’Angleterre est candidate pour accueillir le tournoi en 2025.
