On friday the 9th the rugby world cup is going to be launched in Eden park and there is going to be the first game and a celebration of fireworks. The first game will be against AB and Tonga First it will be haka from the all blacks and then the chant from tonga,My prediction is that the all blacks will win 100 Nil because the ABs got the best players. I think Keven mealamu will score the first try for the hole game.
