All Blacks Lift The Cup

As the game was just 5 minutes away, Mel Gibson (Former Rugby Player) and some other legends in the RWC predicted how that game would go. With just everyone saying that the french side were going to get hammered, the world were soon going to find out whether the All Blacks will lift the cup for the second time, or will France upset them in this highly matched game.

The referee blew the whistle and the game was underway with Morgan Parra(France Fly-half) starting the game off. With just seconds into the match, everyone could feel the tense as the two finalists collided. The All Blacks got off to a good start. They marched there way up and booted the ball in France Territory. How will the French side attack was the question now as the Full Back came running at pace into the defence line of the All Blacks.

As the game carried on, The All Blacks had a line out. In the 22 area in France territory, Tony Woodcock ran and caught the Frenchmen offguard and scored the opening try. It was 5-0 with Piri Weepu missing the kick. With the boot of Piri Weepu not going so sweetly, it cost the All Blacks crucial points. Aaron Cruden was injured and the French crossed over and was leading 7-5.Their lead lasted for a little bit of time when Stephen Donald banged over the winning penalty kick.All the All Blacks had to do now was to hold their defence line and try not to give penalties in certain areas near the post.

In the final 4 minutes, the All Blacks had possesion and with the ford pack doing all the work, the All Blacks was sure to win the game. Brrrrrrr....the whistle blew and the crowd held their breathe and then breathed a huge sigh of relief after the penalty was awarded to the All Blacks. With just seconds away from victory, Brad Thorn took a risky jump from the line out and now the All Blacks was making a maul. 10.....9....8....7....6...5...4...3...2...1.. BRRRRRRR the siren went and when Andy Ellis went to kick the ball out, the French player tackled him without the ball and the ref awarded another penalty to the All Blacks and kicked the ball out.

For the 2 time now, the All Blacks have lifted the cup .Now the All blacks can rest in peace and forget all about the 24 year drought!!!! We already know who are going to be the 2015 champs in England......THE ALL BLACKS!!!!
