Official Review featuring the best of New Zealand vs Australia semi-final and final in full.
“Outstanding!” roared All Blacks coach Graham Henry as his New Zealand side put nearly a quarter century of pain behind them to finally, FINALLY, regain Rugby World Cup by beating an impassioned France by a single point, 8–7, in a gut-wrenching Final.
Twenty-four long years after winning the inaugural Tournament the wait was over and captain and leader, Richie McCaw, raised the beautiful Webb Ellis Cup towards a proud New Zealand nation.
The All Blacks had marched imperiously to the Final despite losing the great man, Dan Carter, to injury after the pool stages. Les Bleus had surprised many to get to the Final; beaten by Tonga and New Zealand in their pool and with a narrow victory over 14-man Wales in the last four.
So to Eden Park and an immense, brutal final; with just moments left France had one last chance – a penalty kick to break 4 million hearts. It missed; as a nation we breathed again.
