The day everyone has been eagerly anticipating for so long has now come and gone, and the hosts have got their Rugby World Cup off to a positive start. In this edition of the Rugby World Cup Daily show, the opening ceremony is feature, we hear from the captains, and the next round of games are previewed.
Today there was only the one match to take in, but things get a whole lot busier soon as tomorrow we've got Scotland against Romania,Fiji vs Namibia, France vs Japan, and then what should be one of the closest games of the round, Argentina vs England.
As this is now a daily feature, we'll probably start to keep things brief in the write-up's from now on. The videos speak for themselves and it's meant to just be a quick catch up anyway.
Unfortunately highlights of the match aren't included in it, for rights issues no doubt, but if you hop across to the official RWC website you can watch on there, as the IRB appear to be controlling things quite strictly.
Don't forget that if you're in the UK you can watch the matches live and on demand on ITV's website, on Supersport's in South Africa, and on Fox Sports' site in Australia. There's a few other places but the official site does a good enough job for now when it comes to highlights.
Enjoy the weekend.
