It's been a pretty rubbish Rugby World Cup from a home nations perspective. England bowed out unceremoniously in the group stage and Wales, Scotland and Ireland all followed suit in the quarter-finals.

So if you need a rugby-related pick-me-up, or even if you've simply struggled to get involved with the ongoing tournament, we think we've found just the thing - the Kitten World Cup.

A fierce contest between the New Zealand 'All-Cats' and 'Prance' (France), shows the teams fighting over a wind-up mouse in a gloriously commentated and edited short.


Highlights include great performances from Richie McClaw and Brodie Cat-allick - it's just a shame Keven Meow-lamu didn't feature.

The video was made by comedians and presenters on the New Zealand television network TV3, Jono and Ben, and has been shared over 8,500 times from their Facebook page.
