Pool A of the 2011 Rugby World Cup began on 9 September 2011 and was completed on 2 October. The pool was composed of hosts New Zealand, as well as the fourth-placed team from 2007, France, and Canada, Japan and Tonga. One of the biggest shocks in the history of the tournament came when Tonga beat France by 19 points to 14.[1] On October 3, it was announced that New Zealand winger Richard Kahui had been voted official Player of Pool A.[2]
