All 600 Rugby World Cup players in just over two minutes

The Rugby World Cup is all about it's diversity, and with 20 different countries taking part, there's a fair mix of people, characters, and cultures. This video gives us a quick look at the 600 players that arrived in New Zealand for the tournament.

The guys at Brandspank have done a fantastic job with the titles and on screen graphics for the feeds coming out of New Zealand. They dropped me a mail on the weekend to let me know about this vid, and I've finally had a chance to check it out and now share it with you on the site.

Part of their work for the tournament included photographing all 600 players from the 20 teams.

They shot around the country to make this happen, and as you can see here, they've mashed them together to create a very cool video that features every player in just over two minutes of footage.

Feel free to hit pause as they go through the teams, just to make sure every player is there. If they've missed out on anyone, let us know and we'll ask them to start the process again.

Since Wales team seem to practice choir singing on their time off from training, thought I would suggest a couple from them to work on this week, singling like cats with their tails caught in a door. It is a long time to the semi after all. Anyway, here they are, the first sang by a yank old group, the second by a recent Irish group, via Barry Manilow... Enjoy. The words are on the net somewhere.

Since the Wales squad is all pug ugly, unlike me, ahem!, I do not know who will be Fogerty singing "looking out my back door". Leigh ha'penny maybe?
