The 2023 Rugby World Cup Final is finally here, with just two sides left to fight for the ultimate prize in rugby.

After two very different semi-finals, New Zealand arrive as the slight favourites with Ladbrokes at $1.80, but will they be the last side standing in what has been a stunning tournament?

New Zealand arrive for the final as the favourites at $1.80, but reigning champions South Africa are right behind them at $2.00, with the trophy within reach for both sides. 

In the semi-finals, fans were treated to two very different matches. Argentina were blown away by New Zealand in a stunning 44-6 loss that put on full show the difference between the two sides. Ultimately, Argentina looked decidedly second best as they failed to back up their win over Wales. 

In the second clash, South Africa looked to be on the brink of elimination as they trailed an England side that played their game-plan perfectly. However, a late try and an even later penalty from Handre Pollard decided the game as South Africa ran out 16-15 winners. 

The match sees arguably rugby's greatest sides going head to head as they look to secure a record-breaking fourth World Cup crown. 

Heading into the final, New Zealand have an extra day to recover and were not pushed particularly hard in their semi-final. Meanwhile, South Africa had to fight tooth and nail for every yard in their match with England, meaning there will be some sore bodies in the Springboks camp. 

Now, just 80 minutes stand between either side and glory, with the latest iteration of New Zealand vs South Africa likely to be the best one yet. 

Can New Zealand end South Africa's reign as world champions, or will the Springboks make it two in a row?
