Poll: Has the Rugby World Cup lived up to expectations?

Some critics suggest the final constitutes an anti-climax, however there have been memorable moments over the course of the tournament.

The Australia-New Zealand game will be looked back upon as one of the tournament's highlights.

THERE HAS UNDOUBTEDLY been some memorable moments in this year’s Rugby World Cup.

The drama and excitement of Wales-South Africa, New Zealand’s consummate defeat of Australia and Ireland’s shock win (also) against Australia are three such moments.

However, there have also been grumblings that the tournament has been somewhat of a disappointment.

While some of the lower-tier nations, most notably Samoa, displayed promise, the quarter-final stages had an all-too-familiar look about them.

Moreover, given the nature of France’s defeat against Wales, many are calling the final an anti-climactic foregone conclusion, in addition to accusing France of being undeserving finalists.

But what do you think? Has this year’s Rugby World Cup lived up to expectations?
