Guinness World Records will be broken during the Rugby World Cups final between Ireland and England on Tuesday.
Irish Rugby announced that Guinness World Record holder Jason O’Sullivan, whose record was set by the team that won the 2008 Rugby World Series, will become the first person to beat the previous record of 45,852 set by former Ireland captain Michael O’Connor.
The record was broken on Saturday in New Zealand, when an 18-year-old named Conor Cummins beat the world record for most tries in a game, at 11,838.
The Guinness World Team confirmed the news on Twitter, saying that the Guinness World Book of Records will soon announce the Guinness Record for Most Number of Points scored in a World Cup Final, after Ireland beat the New Zealanders 4-3 in Cardiff on Saturday.
The Irish beat the team who had the best record at the time, Wales, 4-0.
However, the Irish record for the most tries scored in the World Cup is still a world record.
In 2007, the U.S. beat the U-23s of Australia, which had won the previous three Rugby World Championships.
