Does anybody know where I can find match highlights or replays from the last World Cup. I am getting fired up about the upcoming tournament and would like to watch PNG's near upset of England and some of the other pool matches again. I found Samoa v. Tonga on YouTube, but that was the only one I could find.

 

As an alternative, does anybody actually have the video files? Surely the people who made the "Big Hits" and "Best Try" compilations have the original match videos.

there was an official dvd of the tournament which you can probably find for a couple of quid. Mine's still sealed - will be unwrapped in the coming week or two!

There was a hits video doing the rounds. Best one being Hayne v Lockyer

Edit- Just read again - the organisers made the hits video iirc

Watched my 2008 video a few months back to help get me in the mood. The PNG match, Ireland v Samoa, and the England shocker at Newcastle with Paul Sykes playing!!

Whatever you might think of this year's England squad, when you look at some of those who made the 2008 squad, you can see there has been a massive improvement in the young players coming through in the past five years.

Tonga v Ireland was a cracker too.

Just dug our three out of the attic! I'll dust one down and wear it at the Fiji v Rochdale match, although I appear to be in the Fiji end, so might have to support them instead!

If there are "plenty of highlights" on YouTube, they are well hidden. I've seen a "best tries", a "best hits" and match highlights from the final. I couldn't find match highlights from any pool matches except Fiji v. France. I especially wanted to find highlights of PNG v. England; the first half of that game was great.
