New Zealand ended a 24-year World Cup drought when they edged France 8-7 in an epic Final in Auckland on Sunday.
In a game of inches the teams scored one try each, but a Stephen Donald penalty trumped a Francois Trinh-Duc conversion.
And then the curse of the flyhalves struck again, as Aaron Cruden injured his knee late in the first half and Donald stepped up to slot what turned out to be the winner.
The French had their chances, such as a missed penalty by Trinh-Duc with just over 10 minutes to go, but in the end the scoreboard will reflect on the All Blacks as the victors.
We bring you some of the best pictures from the game!
