What a great Labour Weekend it was. The mighty All Blacks won the 2011 Rugby World Cup yesterday by beating the French in the finals 8-7 at Eden Park, Auckland. This is the second time New Zealand won the Rugby World Cup since its inauguration in 1987, which was then also hosted in New Zealand. The game could have gone both ways but the All Blacks – with the entire nation behind them – played strong and smart, and didn’t let the game slip away. Although it was very nerve-racking at stages. The match-winner was in my eyes Stephen Donald who stepped up to kick a match-winning penalty, after a few kicks were missed. The most valuable player (the MVP) is without question Ma’a Nonu.
