Rugby World Cup 2011 Dates & Fixtures
Rugby World Cup 2011 Dates & Fixtures:
One of the biggest event to be held in September/October is the Rugby World Cup which will held in New Zealand and there is alot of anticipation and hype regarding this event. New Zealand last hosted the World Cup in 1987 and they went on to win the World Cup that time but since than even being tagged as outright favourites to win the every World Cup, they never really lived up to the expectations. Therefore they are labeled as the biggest underachievers in Rugby, just like Cricket. They play their first match against Tonga in the world Cup on 9th September at Eden Park, Auckland.
2011 Rugby World Cup has 20 teams and they are divided into 4 pools of 5 teams each. Every team will be playing 4 matches, 1 against every other team in the group while Top two will get into the kncokout stages where 8 teams will be fighting it out in the Quarter Finals and than 4 in Semifinal. They final match will be played in Auckland’s Eden Park which will become only the first Rugby Stadium to host two finals. Final of the Rugby World Cup 2011 will be played on 22 October 2011.
