Default Swing low 2003 success

England Rugby World Cup Success back in 2003 carried with it the official theme song, Swing Low by UB40 & The United Colours of Sound, I'm making it the unofficial theme song for the 2015 Rugby World Cup which starts in 2wks.....come on England, carry them home....SWING LOW.

Should have gone to number 1 after the final but as i recall Virgin didnt make enough copies.A few weeks later i was amazed to be sat 6 feet from Martin Johnson at the NEC for the UBs Homegrown tour.
