South Africa v New Zealand Rugby Championship Preview and Predictions - All Blacks to sign off in style

Gary Emmerson 6 Oct 2017
  • New Zealand secure a record 57-0 victory in the reverse fixture
  • That was only the third time South Africa had been kept scoreless

New Zealand should complete another perfect Rugby Championship season with a sixth win of the campaign when they take on South Africa in Cape Town on Saturday.

The All Blacks have been unbeatable once again, winning all five games including a record 57-0 demolition of South Africa in the reverse fixture, and they should be too good again in the final game.

Match Preview


New Zealand's All Blacks are assured of another Rugby Championship title, but they can sign off in style with a perfect 6-0 record with victory in South Africa on Saturday.

Steve Hansen's side started the campaign a little slowly in terms of performances, but the results were typical New Zealand - victories. And they can maintain the 100 per cent record in Cape Town.

South Africa will be desperate to post more of a fight than three weeks ago when they were beaten 57-0 in New Zealand, a record defeat in matches between the two sides on what was a night to forget for the Springboks.

They were pushed very close by Australia last weekend in Bloemfontein, and they look unlikely to have the ammunition to trouble the All Blacks and make amends for that embarrassing defeat.

It is a stronger All Blacks side than the one which brushed aside Argentina last week and everything points to yet another New Zealand victory, and a result that could see South Africa finish third in the standings.

Team News


Seven changes to the New Zealand side see the likes of Sam Cane, Liam Squire, Ryan Crotty and Sam Whitelock come back in.

South Africa have named Lood De Jager in their pack, while Uzair Cassiem is an absentee due to injury.

Stats


  • New Zealand secure a record 57-0 victory in the reverse fixture
  • That was only the third time South Africa had been kept scoreless

Predictions and Tips


It isn't the biggest price, but back New Zealand to win by 13 or more.
