Gabriel Clarke's Rugby World Cup video blog
Gabriel Clarke soaks up the atmosphere in Auckland before watching New Zealand overpower Tonga in their opening Rugby World Cup match.
We talk to a number of confident All Black fans ahead of the first Rugby World Cup on New Zealand soil since 1987, before seeing the host nation impress against Tonga, particularly in the first half.
Gabriel talks to Sonny Bill Williams, whose much-talked about off-loading skills were a feature of that first half. Will this be his tournament?
