Well, I can not hide it. I'm disappointed that France has lost the final against New Zealand in the 2011 Rugby World Cup today. And they only lost for one point! Too dab. The French team did play a very good game, so nothing to be ashamed of. And, to be fair, on the whole duration of the competition, New Zealand surely deserves the victory. Congratulations to the All Blacks for having won the 7th rugby world cup. This is the second time that New Zeland wons the Rugby World Cup.
As a tribute to the All Blacks I would like to share with you two souvenir sheets I have received recently. Both are sheets of personalized stamps. The first one is composed of stamps picturing the silver fern, the very well known emblem of the New Zealand rugby team, with labels attached to the stamps picturing All Blacks players. An impressive tribute I think!
The second one contains stamps picturing the emblem of the 2011 rugby world cup attached to label picturing the emblems of all participating countries: Argentina, Australia, Canada, England, Fiji, France, Georgia, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Namibia , New Zealand, Romania, Russia, Samoa, Scotland, South Africa, Tonga, USA, Wales.
I wonder if the New Zealand post will issue a commemorative stamp to celebarte the victory of its team. Well, I will keep you informed!
