The New Zealand All Blacks have created history, by becoming the first nation to win back to back world cups after they defeated the Australian Wallabies 34 -17.
The Kiwi’s led at half time, by a narrow four points but a drop goal from Daniel Carter in the second half was the turning point in the Rugby World Cup Final.
The highly anticipated Rugby World Cup final featured one of the great rivalries of world sport, between the New Zealand All Blacks and the Australian Wallabies.
The All Blacks were first to post points from a penalty, where Daniel Carter made no mistake giving New Zealand an early lead.
The first try of the match saw clever play from Aaron Smith and Conrad Smith which created an opportunity for Nene Milner to cross over for the All Blacks.
Just minutes later the All Blacks scored again through Ma’a Nonu who picked up an offload from Sonny Bill Williams to extend New Zealand’s lead.
A reckless tackle from Ben Smith saw him yellow carded which gave the Wallabies a perfect opportunity to score which they took, when David Pocock barged over for a try.
Ten minutes later, a clever kick from Will Genia gave the Wallabies enough space for Tevita Kuridrani to score; seeing Australia get right into the contest.
With a narrow four point lead, the experience of Dan Carter allowed him to nail a field goal which would in the end seal the match for the All Blacks.
In the final minutes of the game, Ben Smith’s line break saw Barret add the icing to the cake for New Zealand as they claimed back to back the Rugby World Cup.
Gutted Wallabies Captain Stephen Moore, gave full credit to the deserving All Blacks on the victory.
Ritchie McCaw, a proud captain praised his team’s effort by claiming the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
