The knockout stage of the 2007 Rugby World Cup began on 6 October with a Quarter Final between Australia and England and concluded on 20 October with the Final, at the Stade de Francemarker in Saint-Denis, Parismarker, between England and South Africa, their second meeting in this tournament.

South Africa were the first team to qualify for the knockout stage, when they beat Tonga 30-25 in their penultimate Pool A game.

This was the first Rugby World Cup tournament to have its Semi Finalists coming from only two pools (Pools A and D), and the Finalists coming from just one pool (Pool A). The top two representative nations of each of pools B and C were eliminated in the Quarter Finals.
