The Rugby World Cup has begun....
New Zealand and Tonga have  just started to playing and every one is still buzzing from the amazing opening ceremony that took place :)
New Zealand PM John Key made a speech welcoming the 20 teams and supporters. A whopping 100,000 people will come to New Zealand for the tournament in total.
He finished his speech with, "Have a great night, enjoy the rugby and go the mighty All Blacks!"
Although the first match has just started we are waiting patiently in anticipation for Ireland v USA on Sunday.  The Pool C opener kicks off at 7am Irish time. Declan Kidney earlier this morning announced the chosen team to take on USA. The Ireland coach opted to give Munster's 22-year-old Conor Murray from Limerick, the starting scrum-half berth ahead of Leinster duo Eoin Reddan and Isaac Boss. Tomás O'Leary missed out on a place in the World Cup squad after a lacklustre warm-up series.
For all the latest information on the Rugby World Cup RTE Sport have a fantastic live stream of information being uploaded to their site. http://www.rte.ie/sport/rugby/worldcup/2011/0909/live_newzealand_tonga.html
