Rugby world cup fever!
The lead up to the Rugby World Cup 2011 in New Zealand has started.
With just over 10 weeks and less than 100 days until the event starts, the final preparations are being put into place.
The event officially kicks off on September 9th, with the all blacks facing Tonga in the very first game. The last of the volunteers are being picked for the opening ceremonies and they are calling for participants of all abilities. There will even be a dedicated performance events village in the recovering area of Christchurch.
