Rugby World Cup 2003 & 2007 – All Blacks

Rugby World Cup (RWC) 2003 was held on October 10th – November 22nd, 2003 in Australia. In this world cup, All Blacks sat in third positions after beating France 40:13 in the third place match. RWC 2007 was held on September 7th – October 20th in France. This was the saddest moment in the All Blacks history as All Blacks was sent back home after lost to France 18:20 in the quarter-final. Although RWC 2003 & 2007 brought back some sad moments from us, but it was the experiences that bring All Blacks victory in the next world cups. Here are my favourite moment from both RWC 2003 & 2007 (credit to Youtube: Elliot Jack Russell, Cooper Will and Cyril Dobychin). Please check my Flickr here

Rugby World Cup 2011 – All Blacks

Rugby World Cup 2011 was the previous Rugby World Cup (RWC) when All Blacks won the title for the second time (September 9th – October 23rd, 2011). New Zealand was the host for RWC 2011. In the final, All Blacks beat France 8:7. I found all matches from Youtube, Dailymotion and Veoh (credit to Chris Housten, Bounzback14, Martin Kazenaze, Echoz and Rugby World Game). Stephen Donald as one of the heroes of RWC 2011 was also made into a movie called “The Kick”. I watched the movie on TVNZ (and I like the movie and how they visualize Stephen Donald and his mate, Richard Kahui in the movie. Here are my favourite moments from RWC 2011 – Also check my Flickr here
