It took 24 years and, last night, a whole heap of nerves but they finally did it. The William Webb Ellis Cup will now rest in New Zealand's trophy cabinet for the next four years.
Sadly, it wasn't the most scintillating final and Les Blues certainly rose to the occasion. But with the slenderest of margins, the ABs managed to pull it off and are now the rugby world champions.
And I blame them for my stinking hangover...
