Pool C of the 2007 Rugby World Cup began on 8 September and concluded on 29 September 2007. The pool was composed of World Cup debutantes Portugal, Italy, New Zealand, Romania and Scotland.

Overview[edit]

New Zealand were assured of first place in the pool after only three rounds of matches, having secured the maximum of five points from each of their matches. Over their four matches, the All Blacks established a new points record for the pool stage with 309 points.

Italy were unable to carry their strong Six Nations form into the World Cup, and were knocked out. Scotland qualified for the quarter-finals as pool runners-up.
