New Zealand vs Australia Tips


New Zealand come into their second clash with Australia in the space of a week on the back of defending their Rugby Championship crown, retaining the Bledisloe Cup and hammering their opponents.

Australia need to be better this week, with the side allowing a decent first-half to count for nothing against New Zealand last week as they fell off badly in the second 40 minutes.

New Zealand Form


New Zealand were excellent last week as they put Australia to the sword in a strong 38-7 win on the road. 

Their physicality was particularly impressive, while they controlled the game and gave their opponents so little to work with. When a side like New Zealand can play with creativity and discipline, it makes it very difficult to get close to them. 

This was New Zealand's third win in a row and, with a clash with South Africa to come in late August ahead of their opening Rugby World Cup fixture with France on September 8, the All Blacks will be targeting two more wins to keep building on their momentum.

Australia Form 


Australia have started well in their three matches at the Rugby Championship, but they seem to have a real problem keeping the intensity in their game. 

Against New Zealand, the score with 19-7 to the All Blacks at half-time with the Aussies still in the game. However, New Zealand scored 19 unanswered points in the second-half to kill the match off as a contest. 

Injuries and ill-discipline continue to hurt the Australians, and it will be worrying for coach Eddie Jones that he may not get a win with his new side before the start of the World Cup, with only a game against France in late August to come before their first Rugby World Cup outing. 

Verdict

I am backing New Zealand to put on a show and hammer Australia in another defeat for Eddie Jones and his side.
