Excitement not building for Rugby World Cup

In just one month today, it'll be all-go in England for the launch of the Rugby World Cup tournament.

But is London getting hyped for the occasion?

According to 3 News Europe correspondent Melissa Davies, that's a no.

After speaking to All Black Ali Williams, Davies says in terms of the hype before the New Zealand Rugby World Cup 2011, London doesn't match it at all.

But she says it's not from lack of effort.

"They've got a trophy tour going around, it's not like they're not organising events. There's this big festival of rugby going on but it's not really getting any coverage," she says.
