The 2003 Rugby World Cup was the fifth rugby union world cup. It was won by England. Originally planned to be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand, all games were shifted to Australia following a contractual dispute over ground signage rights between the New Zealand Rugby Football Union and Rugby World Cup Limited. The pre-event favourites were England and New Zealand, with France, defending champions Australia and South Africa all expected to make strong showings.

The teams were divided into four pools of five nations, with the top two in each pool moving on to the knockout quarter-final stage. For the first time, a bonus point system was implemented in pool play. This system is identical to that long used in Southern Hemisphere tournaments, and was soon adopted in most European competitions (though not in the Six Nations): The Southern Hemisphere is the half of a planets surface (or celestial sphere) that is south of the equator (the word hemisphere literally means half ball). On Earth it contains five continents (Antarctica, Australia, most of South America, parts of Africa and Asia) as well as four oceans (South...

Summary

First Round

The opening game at Telstra Stadium between Australia and Argentina.
The opening game at Telstra Stadium between Australia and Argentina.

The ARU's main promotion for the event was "Show Your True Colours". The Australian media criticised the competition early in the tournament as the smaller nations were crushed by the rugby superpowers by 60 points or more. However, some of these smaller, third tier nations, such as Japan, acquitted themselves well in their opening matches. The South Pacific island countries of Fiji, Tonga and Samoa were reported as being handicapped as several of their key players who play abroad being warned by their clubs that their contracts would not be renewed if they played in the competition. Image File history File links World_Cup_Telstra_stadium. ... Image File history File links World_Cup_Telstra_stadium. ... This page is for Telstra Stadium, Sydney. ...


In the event, the group stage of the competition played out largely as expected, with some tension as to whether some of the "developing" nations would overtake some of the weaker major countries for the second quarterfinal qualification place in each pool — in pool A, Argentina lost to Ireland by only one point, which would otherwise have carried them into the quarterfinals in Ireland's place; similarly in pool B Fiji lost to Scotland by only two points, while Italy put up a good performance in pool D. In pool C, Samoa gave England a fright with an adventurous approach that allowed them to take an early lead. However, England's superior fitness saw them through.


The big clashes ran mainly to form. A disappointing South Africa limped through the pool, eventually capitulating to England to relegate them to a difficult quarter final against New Zealand. Australia just beat Ireland to top their group, whilst Wales pushed the All Blacks to the wire, after adopting an outgoing style of play with a fringe selection. France beat Scotland to round out the quarter finals.

There were numerous accusations of spying between various nations during the tournament.[2] So-called paranoia was at its peak in the lead up to the Scottish-Australian clash, when head Scottish coach Ian McGeechan and assistant coach Alan Tait even waved to what they believed were hidden cameras in the buildings surrounding their training venue at the University of Queensland. The Scottish team finished the session back at the hotel away from any potential cameras. Some believe that it is widespread in professional rugby, as there is so much riding on a game. The Scotland on Sunday newspaper reported that a cameraman and another person with a a still camera were spotted in the stands during a secret Scottish training session.[3] Wallabies head coach Eddie Jones was skeptical of Scotland's claims, saying "I can honestly tell you I don't even know where they're training".[4] Image File history File linksMetadata Download high-resolution version (1131x485, 138 KB) This work is a copyrighted publicity photograph. ...

Knock-out stage

The knock-out quarter final stage produced the widely predicted set of semi-finalists, although England again made heavy weather of defeating a resurgent Wales. England were widely rated the world's best team, but they struggled against a Welsh side full of belief after their game against New Zealand. France destroyed an Irish side who had gone into the match hopeful of a win, scoring 31 early points to put the game out of reach. In the other quarter-finals, a disappointing South Africa fell to New Zealand and Australia defeated the Scots.


The first semi-final produced an upset, when Australia defeated the hugely fancied New Zealand to become the first defending champions to reach the following championship final. The match was decided by a Stirling Mortlock interception try, after a loose pass from highly-rated All Blacks fly-half, Carlos Spencer. Unfortunately, it was probably the last match for Australian star Ben Darwin, who injured his neck in a scrum. Although Darwin never played rugby again the actions of Kees Meeuws -who immediatly stopped exerting pressure when he heard the call "neck neck neck"- may well have saved his opponent's life and certainly prevented further injury. The second semi-final saw France face England. The boot of Jonny Wilkinson was the difference between the two sides, with England coming out victors, but rain and France's willingness to give away penalties to prevent tries ensured that it was a dour game. Ben Darwin (born 17 October 1976) is a former Australian rugby union footballer. ... Look up scrum in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...

Final

The final between Australia and England was played at Sydney's Telstra Stadium in front of a crowd of 82,957. Security at the final was the tightest ever for a Rugby World Cup final. Australia opened the scoring after they decided to run a penalty instead of kicking for touch. Lote Tuquiri beat England's right wing, Robinson, to a high cross-field kick and went over for the first try, but Elton Flatley was not able to add the conversion. This page is for Telstra Stadium, Sydney. ...


England dominated the rest of the half, opening up a 9-5 lead after Australian indiscipline gave away several penalties, but were unable to capitalise on their dominance. They nearly crossed the line on one occasion, when the Australian defence was stretched after a mistake and Ben Kay was given a potential try-scoring pass. He fumbled the ball over the line. Television replays showed Kay's reaction in four-letter words. Towards the end of the first half, England stretched their lead further. Lawrence Dallaglio made a break and popped the ball inside to Jonny Wilkinson, who drew the defence before putting Robinson away in the corner for a try. The conversion was missed, but England went in at halftime leading by 14-5, a resounding riposte to the Australian media, which had questioned England's try-scoring abilities.

In the second half Australia tightened their discipline, and solid play forced mistakes from England. The game swung from end to end, with both sides having try-scoring opportunities, but neither able to take them. Australia managed to get points on the board and Elton Flatley scored two penalties to make the score 14-11 to England. In the 79th minute, Australia were putting pressure on England in their half. England had a scrum and just needed to keep hold of the ball until time elapsed. Several scrums were reset after the front rows failed to engage properly and finally, the referee, André Watson, gave a controversial penalty to Australia, despite England's scrum dominating the rest of the game. Flatley converted it with the last kick of normal time to tie the score 14-14 and take it to 20 minutes' extra time. Elton Flatley is an Australian rugby union footballer. ...


England opened the scoring in extra time with another Wilkinson penalty, but with two and a half minutes of extra time remaining Australia were awarded another penalty, which Flatley kicked successfully. With 21 seconds left before sudden death, England's Wilkinson scored a drop goal to win the match and with it the world championship.

Celebrations at Trafalgar Square.

Three days after the final, the new World Champion England team landed at Heathrow Airport in the early hours of the morning, emerging from their plane to a huge reception, despite the time.[5] Scrum-half Matt Dawson described the reception at the airport as "mindblowing". On December 8 a national day of celebration took place in the form of a massive victory parade in the streets of London.[6]An estimated 40,000 international spectators travelled to Australia during the World Cup. A tourism boost was noted, for example bars in Adelaide experienced an increase of revenue by 30% over the duration of the World Cup. Officials in Melbourne estimated that AUS$100 million was injected into the Australian economy. In April 2004, the International Rugby Board released a review of the tournament, which saw records in almost all aspects of the World Cup. The Australian Rugby Union said that revenues exceeded all expectations and it was announced that it had received a tournament surplus of AUS$44.5 million.[7] The hosting of the World Cup in Australia also saw an increase in Super 12 crowds and junior participation.
