World Rugby boss Alain Rolland admits to England that Mark Cueto's try in the 42nd was good and should have stood in the 2007 RWC final.

That is all.

Further to this, World Rugby have declared that the Cueto try was worth 10 points, to save having someone go back and take the conversion, and find some extra points somewhere. England are accordingly declared 2007 World Champions.

In other news, WR have decided that Hook's kick went over in the 2011 semi-final. As a result, the Wales and NZ 2011 RWC squads are to assemble in Auckland for a re-play of the final (there's a movie in that ;-) ).

The 1995 RWC is also to be replayed following a confession from Suzy the waitress, though sadly neither Lomu nor van der Westhuizen will be able to take part

Other "corrected" match results announced include:
*The 1905 match between Wales and NZ is declared a draw as Bob Deans' disallowed try is reinstated.
*The 1978 Wales vs NZ match is a win to Wales as McKechnie's penalty goal following the Haden lineout dive is rescinded. WR are urging the ICC to grant McKechnie six runs from facing the underarm ball vs Australia in 1981 in compensation, which would make that match a tie
