The opening ceremony of the
2007 Rugby World Cup

The competition will be contested over 44 days between 20 different nations, over 48 fixtures. The tournament began on 7 September at the Stade de France with a match between the host nation, France, and Argentina. The tournament culminates at the same venue on 20 October for the Final between England and South Africa to decide who wins the Webb Ellis Cup.

Pool stage

The 20 nations are split up into four pools, designated A through to D, each comprising five teams. Each pool has one semi-finalist and one quarter-finalist (automatic qualifiers) from the 2003 tournament, with the other three places filled via the qualification system. Each nation plays every other team in their pool once; each nation will therefore play four matches during the pool stage.


Classification within each pool is based on the following scoring system:

  • four match points for a win;
  • two for a draw;
  • zero for a loss.[31]

Bonus points, contributing to a team's cumulative match-point score, are awarded in each of the following instances (one match point for each event): The Rugby union bonus points system is a method of deciding table points from a Rugby union match. ...

  • a team scores four or more tries (regardless of the match result);
  • a team loses by seven points (a converted try) or fewer.[31]

At the end of the pool stage, teams will be ranked from first to fifth based on cumulative match points, with the top two nations proceeding to the quarter-finals. This article refers to the use of the word Try in rugby football terminology. ...


If at the completion of the pool phase two or more Teams are level on Match points, then the following criteria shall be used in the following order until one of the Teams can be determined as the higher ranked: [31]

i. The winner of the Match in which the two tied Teams have played each other shall be the higher ranked;
ii. The Team which has the best difference between points scored for and points scored against in all its pool Matches shall be the higher ranked;
iii. The Team which has the best difference between tries scored for and tries scored against in all its pool Matches shall be the higher ranked;
iv. The Team which has scored most points in all its pool Matches shall be the higher ranked;
v. The Team which has scored most tries in all its pool Matches shall be the higher ranked;
vi. Should the tie be unresolved at the conclusion of steps (i) through (v), the Team that is higher ranked in the updated Official IRB World Rankings on October 1, 2007.

By elevating head-to-head results (rule i) above points difference (rule ii), a notable difference is created to other sports competitions, in which points difference usually determines rank for teams with the same number of match points (table points). These rules allowed the winners of Pools A, B and C to be determined by the results of the third pool matches on the weekend of September 22 and 23.[32] Although other teams could theoretically draw level on table points with South Africa, Australia and New Zealand and exceed their points differences at the end of the pool stages, head-to-head results by that time ensured these teams could be declared winners of their respective pools, with a match to spare. This also illustrates the fact that the pool tables do not tell the whole story.


Knockout stage

From this stage onwards, the tournament adopts a knockout format comprising eight fixtures: four quarter-finals, two semi-finals, a bronze medal match, and the final. The winner and runner-up from each of the four pools advance to the quarter-finals. Pool winners are drawn against opposite pool runners-up in the quarter-finals, e.g. the winner of Pool A faces the runner up of Pool B, and the winner of Pool B face the runner-up of Pool A. The third place playoff (sometimes called the bronze medal game or consolation game) is a single bout that is included in many sporting knockout tournaments to decide which competitor or team will be credited with finishing third and fourth. ...


Each match in the knockout stage must conclude in a victory. If, after eighty minutes of normal play, a match results in a draw, further play is made to determine an outright winner. Initially, there will be two periods of extra time, 10 minutes each way; if there is no winner after this, then play proceeds to a single 10 minute period of 'sudden death' play. If the contest is unresolved after a total 110 minutes of open play, the winner will be determined by a placekicking competition.[31] Extra time is an additional period played at the end of some games of football (soccer) if the score is tied after the two standard periods (halves) of play. ... Sudden death (or a sudden death round) is a way of providing a winner for a contest or game (typically a sport) which would otherwise end in a tie. ...


Effect on 2011 qualification

In a change from the format of the previous tournament, the top three teams in each pool will qualify for the 2011 World Cup in New Zealand;[33] previously, only the eight quarter-finalists gained an automatic place in the following tournament. For the 2011 Rugby World Cup there are 16 places available in the finals tournament, held in New Zealand. ... The 2003 Rugby World Cup was the fifth rugby union world cup. ... The 2011 Rugby World Cup will be the seventh time that the Rugby World Cup (RWC) has been held. ...

Jerry Collins[38] (New Zealand player)

There has been some controversy over the post match citings by IRB Citing Commissioners with all players not being cited for seemingly similar offences or receiving lengthy bans when other players are only sin binned (yellow carded).[37][38][39] Jerry Collins (born 4 November 1980 in Apia, Samoa) is a New Zealand rugby union footballer and currently plays for the national team, the All Blacks. ...


Examples of inconsistencies include the citing of Schalk Burger against Samoa in the same game Brian Lima executed what seemed to be a late tackle. Lima wasn't cited in that instance, but later received a three week ban following an almost identical tackle on England's Jonny Wilkinson.[36] For other persons named Schalk Burger, see Schalk Burger (disambiguation). ... Brian Lima (born 25 January 1972 in Apia, Samoa) is a Samoan rugby union footballer. ... Jonathan Peter Wilkinson OBE (born 25 May 1979 in Frimley, Surrey) is an English rugby union player and member of the England rugby union team. ...


England's Phil Vickery received a two week ban for tripping an American player, while Christophe Dominici only received a yellow card for the same offence in the 2003 World Cup.[36] Other examples of players being sin binned, but not receiving further punishment include Australia's Drew Mitchell for his spear tackle on a Welsh player and New Zealand prop Carl Hayman for punching (a serious offence) an Italian opponent.[40][39] Philip John Vickery MBE (born 14 March 1976) is an English rugby union footballer who plays prop for Wasps and England, and was part of the England side that won the 2003 Rugby World Cup. ... Christophe Dominici (born May 20, 1972 in Toulon) is an French rugby union footballer. ... Drew Mitchell (born 26 March 1984 ) is an Australian rugby union player. ... Carl Hayman (born 14 November 1979 in Opunake, New Zealand) is an international prop from New Zealand. ...
