The Rugby World Cup Begins
On Friday the 9th os September, the Rugby World Cup Kicked off. It was also the night to celebrate ten years of the 9 11 attack in America. The opening ceremony was awesome. It got separated in to four parts. I reckon that it looked better on T.V, then live at Eden Park.
To kick off the tournament, the MIGHTY ALL BLACKS took on TONGA. I had a feeling that the All Blacks were going to have high points. But the score ended up being 41 - 10 to the All Blacks. Of course we knew that they were going to win, but it wasn’t the score that we were expecting it to be.
The crowd was awesome when they were cheering for their teams. When the teams were doing the HAKAS, the crowd went berserk. People supported really well and some people even dressed up.
Although the city struggled with the huge crowd, some people agreed that the opening ceremony was a huge success.
