I’ve never loved Rugby…always deemed gamed to rough, hence, my rechristening the game as ” Roughgby”. But, I just could not deny or not appreciate the emotions, decdication and passion that was replete in the air as the New Zealand won the Rugby World cup some moments ago. They successfully defended the title they also won 4 years ago.
The All Blacks become the first side to retain the Rugby World Cup and win the trophy three times courtesy of a 34-17 victory over Australia in a thrilling final at Twickenham this evening.
The Trans-Tasman rivals were meeting on the biggest stage in rugby for the first time ever, with history promising to be made whatever the outcome.
It was New Zealand who made the brighter start to proceedings, and their domination of the early territory and possession proved to be a theme of the first half as they kept Australia, without a World Cup triumph since 1999, under pressure.
Viva Naija shares in this moment of celebrating perfection, passion and panache in world Rugby by congratulating the Haka chanters on this memorable win.
