Competition: Although they were three-time world champions, their biggest win over Japan, 145-17, in 1995, the semi-final against England at the famous Newlands Stadium in Cape Town, is one of the most memorable matches in history. There great Jonah Lomu was a giant against the English, scoring four tries to advance to the final. The XV defeated De La Rosa with a resounding 45-29 win.

Another moment was the first World Cup and John Kirwan’s try against Italy in the opening game of the cup in 1987. The winger launched a long slalom inside his own 22 and avoided nine Italians en route to the try.

Below: France managed him from the 1999 and 2007 World Cups. A 43-31 semi-final defeat against Les Bleus at Twickenham in 1999 was one of the greatest performances in history. At RWC 2007 they went 13–3 in the first half against the home team, fell 20–18 and were out only once in the quarterfinals. Many called for the head of coach Graham Henry, who won the crown in 2011 four years later.

Player: New Zealand captain Jonah Lomu died of kidney failure in 2015. Lomu broke out in 1995 and was a man in 1999, but unusually he did not win the World Championship. Dubbed “the monstrosity” by English captain Will Carling, it was unstoppable at the time due to its size and speed. He scored 15 tries in 1995 and 1999 matches, a feat matched by Brian Habana, in 2015 and only with three World Cups.

Information: New Zealand are the only team to remain unbeaten in the first round of the World Cup. Additionally, it is the team with the most consecutive wins: it won 17 games in a row between the 2011 and 2019 tournaments. The series was cut short in unusual fashion: Japan’s match against Italy was suspended due to Cyclone Hagibis, and Japan finished 0-0 in World Rugby.

“In the first person”: “I’m very proud of the team. It’s a dream come true to win back-to-back World Cups. “It’s a solid team and we’re trying to do something we’ve never done before … It’s a special feeling to be part of such a great team.” Dan Carter was the man of the match in the final at RWC 2015 at Twickenham in a massive win over Australia that gave them their third World Cup.
