Rugby Player Numbers - Part 2

How many players does it take to win a world cup?

Based on the ruggerblogger data, lets have a closer look at the player numbers from the various counties, but particularly the 4 countries which have won a World Cup or two, how do these nations compare in terms of volume of players?

From the viz below you can get a feel for the numbers and in particular we can spot that England has far and away more resources in terms of pure player numbers than any of the other World Cup winning nations. Maybe this is what it takes for a Northern Hemisphere side to win the World Cup, pure weight of numbers, draw your own conclusions.
