The 2011 IRB Rugby World Cup has come to an end. On Friday Wales played against Australia in the 3rd place / 4th place play-off match. The match was an intense one. Wales played outstanding rugby but in the end Australia proved to be to strong for the Welsh team, narrowly winning the match by 21 to 18 points.
On Sunday the 2011 IRB Rugby World Cup final was played at Eden Park in Auckland. It was a close match. Both the French and the All Blacks showing why they deserved to be in the finals. The All Blacks were hungry for a win and were leading by 5 points to 0 at half time. In the end New Zealand was just too strong for the French. The All Blacks won the 2011 IRB Rugby World Cup final by 8 points to 7. The match was a repeat of the 1987 IRB Rugby World Cup final 24 years ago (a match which the All Blacks also won). It was the 2nd time that the All Blacks have won the IRB Rugby World Cup and Webb Ellis Trophy.
The All Blacks were not the only winners this weekend though…
Robbie Wessels visited the Junk Mail head office on Friday to judge the competition. Besides the main prize in the competition, an Apple iPad 2 (which also included a “Robbified” hamper) there were also Rugby is Groot hampers for the 2nd and 3rd place winners.
The judges in the Bokke Jive competition were Robbie Wessels, Louise van der Merwe, Angelique Robbertse, Ismail Mohlala and Adrian Kirsten.
In the end, there could only be one! The competition was stiff and following the judges decision Junk Mail is proud to announce Milly Spies as the overall winner with her Bull Bokke Terrior and Baby Bok entry.
