Venues

The 1995 tournament was the first Rugby World Cup that was being hosted by just the one country, and thus, all the venues are within the one country. In total 9 stadiums were used for the World Cup, most being owned by the domestic rugby unions, and the majority of the venues were upgraded prior to the tournament. Six of the 9 stadiums were South African Test grounds. The four largest stadiums were used for the finals, with the final taking place at Johannesburg's Ellis Park. Ellis Park Stadium is a stadium in the city of Johannesburg, Gauteng Province, South Africa. ...


There were games originally scheduled to have been played in Brakpan, Germiston, Pietermaritzburg and Witbank, but the game were reallocated to other venues. This reduced the number of venues from 14 to 9. The reasons cited for this change were to do with facilities for both the press and spectators, and security. The change in the itinerary occurred in January of 1994. Further changes occurred in April, so that evening games were played at stadia with good floodlighting. It is also thought that Potchefstroom was an original venue. Brakpan is a gold and uranium mining town in Gauteng, South Africa. ...

Format

The tournament was contested by 16 different nations, and in total 32 matches were played. The competition commenced on May 25, when the hosts South Africa defeated Australia 27-18 at Newlands in Cape Town. The competition culminated with the final between South Africa and the All Blacks at Ellis Park in Johannesburg on June 24, in total, the tournament running for around one month. The nations were broken up into four pools of four, with each pool consisting of two teams that were automatically qualified and two that went through the qualifying tournaments. Pool winners are drawn against opposite pool runners-up in the semi-finals, for example the winner of A faces the runner up of B, and the winner of B face the runner-up of A. The whole finals stage adopts a knock-out format, and the winners of the quarter-finals advance to the semi-finals, where winner 1 faces winner 2, and winner 3 faces winner 4. The winners advance to the final, and the losers contest a third/fourth place play-off the day before the final.


Final

The final was contested by the hosts, South Africa, and the All Blacks of New Zealand. Both nations finished at the top of their respective pools, both 3-0 undefeated in the pool stages. South Africa defeated Western Samoa in the quarter finals, and then France in the semi-finals to reach the final; the All Blacks defeated Scotland in the quarter-finals, and England in the semi-finals, a game in which Jonah Lomu famously scored four tries. The final was played at Golden Lions' Ellis Park in Johannesburg and refereed by Ed Morrison of England. Many of the New Zealand team were alleged to have been struck down with a mysterious illness just prior to kick-off. This was later alleged to have been deliberate food poisoning, using "Indian Trick"(colloq.), a tasteless odourless powder that can be added to food which causes the victim to experience symptoms similar to that of gastroenteritis. However this was not proven, and is disputed. Former All Black Iain Jones who played in the final has said on New Zealand television that none of the players were ill pre-match. Jonah Tali Lomu, MNZM (born May 12, 1975) is a New Zealand rugby union footballer who has played 73 times (63 caps) as an All Black after debuting in 1994. ...

South Africa led 9-6 at half time, but the All Blacks levelled the scores at 9-all with a penalty goal in the second half. Though Andrew Mehrtens almost kicked a late drop goal, the score remained unchanged at full time, forcing the game into extra time. Both teams scored penalty goals in the first half of extra time, but it was Joel Stransky who landed a drop goal to win the final for South Africa. Andrew Philip Mehrtens MNZM (born 28 April 1973 in Durban, South Africa) is a New Zealand rugby union footballer who has been one of the top fly-halves (or first five-eighths) in the world since the advent of the sports professional era in the mid-1990s. ... Joel Theodore Stransky (born 16 July 1967) is a former South African rugby union footballer, most notable for scoring the winning drop goal in the 1995 Rugby World Cup final. ...


What happened after the match would go onto become an iconic moment in the history of the sport. Nelson Mandela, wearing a Springbok rugby shirt and baseball cap, presented the William Webb Ellis Cup to South African captain Francois Pienaar to the delight of the capacity crowd. The moment is thought by some to be one of the most famous finals of any sport.[4] Mandela's presentation was listed as one of the 100 Greatest Sporting Moments on a British television programme.

The behavior of Derek Bevan the referee of this semi-final is highly controversed. He grants a try to South-African player Ruben Kruger, who admitted himself that his try was not valid. He refused two tries to France, especially to Abdelatif Benazzi, although perfectly valid. In the second half-time, French scrum was more powerful than his opponent and forced South Africa to collapse many scrums. This should result in a penalty-try for France but Bevan decided in another way. In the name of History.
