The All Blacks 5-0 lead in the first half of the match then scored another 3 points due to a penalty in the second half. Seems like it’s an easy victory but France came back strong with sustained attacks where they almost succeeded but still came in short at the final whistle where New Zealand triumphed with 8-7 score.

The Rugby World Cup finals was watched by 61,000 rugby fans inside the Eden Park Stadium.

There were also an estimated 150,000 people who have gathered to watch the final game on giant screens, wild celebrations broke out after the match ended.
