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.
