The Rugby World Cup final just finished a few minutes ago, and Australia narrowly lost it… 😥
The Australian team did themselves proud tonight, twice coming back from behind and eventually forcing play into extra time. Every time England nudged ahead, Australia managed to pull back the difference. In the end, it was the halfback Jonny Wilkinson’s kicking that made all the difference, kicking a final drop goal seconds from the end of extra time. It was certainly a nerve-racking game right through!! Final score: Australia 17, England 20.
England has made history tonight, being the first northern-hemisphere to hold aloft the Rugby World Cup.
