Always a popular event on the social calendar, the 2011 World Rugby Classic was held last week, and saw Argentina win the title after beating the Classic Lions 25-19 in the World Rugby Classic Finals on November 12th.

On the first day, New Zealand beat the United States 39-0, and the Classic Lions beat Italy 83-5. On the second day Argentina and Canada won over South Africa and Australia.
