Rugby World Cup 2007 has started

          Rugby world cup 2007 has officially started on the 07th September 2007 in Paris, France. In the Opening match host France were beaten 12-17 by Argentina. Top 4 teams, New Zealand, Australia, France, South Africa played their first matches and it seems top 3 out of 4 teams (France is current no 2 in IRB rankings) are in good form.

          New Zealand was awesome against Italy who were beaten by 76-14 and this is the best New Zealand World Cup team I have seen after Sean Fitzpatricks team in 1992 world cup. 2nd row Chris Jack, flanker Jerry Collins, No8 Rodney So'oialo, scrum half Byron Kelleher, wingers Sitiveni Sivivatu, Doug Howlett and fullback Leon MacDonald played a great game. RWC is scheduled till 20th October so there are many more actions to come. I hope we can see some good rugby.
