11 Twitter Accounts to Follow During #RWC2011

With the 2011 RWC finally here, we thought it would be a good time to put together a list of our suggestions for who to follow on Twitter during the World Cup.

The All Black players have been banned from tweeting in their personal capacity, but you can follow their group twitter account, which seems like it’s going to be pretty accurate.

Catch the Springbok updates with our two favourites SA rugby twitter accounts, one official, one unofficial. We’ve included the Official Wales, Irish and Wallabies accounts and the Russian team’s Twitter account  (since it’s their first World Cup), as well as the Real NZ Festival, official RWC and Auckland pages for good measure!
