There was lots of excitement in the Stadium at Eden Park. Everyone came to watch the opening ceremony. There were fire works and celebrations. John Key and Jonah Lomu were also there. There were lots of face paints and there were lots of flags and banners. After that my family were biting there nails because they were nervous. When the All Blacks got there first try, they screamed and I had to cover my ears. France and New Zealand played the final game. It was a close match. The points were 7 – 8 to the All Blacks. All Blacks won the Rugby World Cup and the 4 million people of New Zealand were happy!
