RWC Match Day Programme New Zealand vs South Africa

RWC Match Day Programme New Zealand vs South Africa

In a tournament where the praises of the north were sung far and wide. Echoes of a first Northern Hemisphere victory since the heroics of Johnny Wilkinson's Engand side in 2003. However, much like most of the previous world cups, the south rose to the occasion and dominated the knockout stage. After suffering a defeat in the pool stages at the hands of France and Ireland, South Africa and New Zealand woud bounce back with an emphatic run to the final. The pitch in St Dennis has been watered, the kits have been laid out. Ladies and gentlemen, the time has come to begin a new era in World Rugby, the final is here. Thank You for Joining us, this is Ultimate Rugby Match Day, the Rugby World cup edition.
