Hi everyone,
Can anybody help me to identify the font used by the IRB in most of the Rugby World Cups logos?

I found out already that the numbers are a "Dairyland" but the text is another font I haven't found yet...

England is handel gothic

“RUGBY WORLD CUP” looks almost like Frutiger, though not quite.
“ENGLAND” could be Handel Gothic.
The numbers look custom-made, and not very well at that.
[Edit:] Unless it’s available in more weights than the one on MyFonts, the numbers are not in Dairyland. They are too thin.

Should be their corporate typeface simply called "RWC" and, according to this previous discussion, designed by Witekite. It somehow mixes influences from Handel Gothic (as suggested by Mans) and Akagi.
