After over 20 years of drought, the All Blacks finally regained their Rugby World Cup crown.
It wasn’t a clean game, and both sides had bad decisions made against them by the ref. It was however a running game in the style of old where true stamina and determination was needed to overcome the opposition. I think the score of 8 – 7 reflects the tightness of the game, and the total energy both sides put into their respective efforts.
Well done to Richie and the entire All Blacks outfit. There are some VERY happy Kiwis in Hong Kong right now, and some pretty devastated (and even angry) French.
