It's almost here! The semi final's of the Rugby World Cup 2011. Wales are in the semi finals for the first time since 1987. They are up against France who have had a bit of a mixed competition, with a couple of losses but also a few wins. Wales will have their work cut out to beat the French as they are a team never to be written off. It all depends what French team turn up, although I am confident of a Welsh victory as Wales are playing so well that it's surely their game to lose! 
New Zealand vs Australia is a bit of a guess at this stage of the competition. NZ have been consistently number one in the World for a reason, but the Aussies are always a danger. Local derby's don't come much bigger than this!
To celebrate the wonderful weekend of rugby I've added a few illustrations from my iStock portfolio below. Enjoy and feel free to let me know what you think.
