2015 Rugby World Cup: Best moments from the tournament
A look at some of the best moments from the 2015 Rugby World Cup in England, which saw New Zealand beat Australia in the final to become the first three-time champs in history.
Last Saturday, New Zealand beat Australia in the final of the 2015 Rugby World Cup to become the first three-champs in history. And after a thrilling final, the IRB came out and declared that this edition had been the best World Cup in the history of the sport. And not just in viewership, but in quality too, for we witnessed some brilliant rugby and the best teams made it through to the latter stages of the tournament. As we bid goodbye to England 2015 and look forward to Japan 2019, here are some of the best moments from this latest edition.
#12 Nonu breaks Australia\'s back
Ma’a Nonu was one of those retiring at the end of the final and he could not have signed off in any better style as he possibly scored the try of the tournament in the second half of the final clash against Australia.
Within minutes of the restart, Nonu latched onto a superb offload from replacement Sonny Bill Williams and he broke through the Australian defence, going past four Wallaby defenders to score his team’s second try and really push the lead up, giving his team an 18 point advantage.
