Rugby World Cup 2011 - one year on

Thursday 13 Sep 2012 4:05 p.m.

This time a year ago, the rugby world cup was in full swing.

Eight games had been played and 40 games remained.

The country was in party mode, the foreign teams, the foreign fans and the foreign flags were all here.

And the catch cry "a stadium of four million" had somehow become more than just wishful thinking or a marketing cliché, as we collectively embraced the tournament and all taking part in it.

Its chief executive, Martin Snedden, has now written a book, looking back on the rugby world cup and celebrating the way New Zealanders turned out to cheer for Georgia, Romania, and Namibia, even though we couldn't name a single player in their team.
