One week after New Zealand claimed a historic victory in the Rugby World Cup final, we reflect on what may have been the greatest rugby tournament ever.

There were so many highlights - Japan's opening game heroics against South Africa, the the Tongan Sipi Tau going toe-to-toe with the All Black Haka, Ian Madigan's tears against France, Argentina blitzing Ireland in the quarter finals, Scotland's last minute heartache against the Wallabies and Dan Carter's superb dropgoal in the final.

This video relives many of the moments that made the 2015 Rugby World Cup great. Many will argue it was the greatest rugby tournament of all time, while others will say it is up there with one of the best international tournaments of any sport.

Spine-tingling stuff.
