Coverage starts on ITV1. John Inverdale presenting
The Red Arrows will perform a fly-past just before the start of the match. The Arrows will soar over Trafalgar square at 3.53pm and then over Twickenham as the teams line up for the national anthems.
The haka. The All Blacks have remained tight-lipped about which haka they are to perform. The original - and more famous version - is ka
mate, composed by the Ngati Toa Chieftan Te Rauparaha around 1820. But in the 2011 final against France they opted for their newer version,
kapa o pango,
which was introduced in 2005.
Kick-off. Fans who missed out on a ticket to the final can watch it unfold on giant television screens in the Trafalgar Square and Richmond fanzones. Twickenham itself will be decked out in a “new look” to mark the final, featuring images of the Webb Ellis Cup in celebratory gold colours.
The London Eye will light up in the colours of the Rugby World Champions
ITV coverage finishes, unless the match goes to extra-time.
