The Rugby Championship 2018 Edition: Week Three Predictions

rugby-championship-logo-806

New Zealand vs Argentina

The All-Blacks are coming off two consecutive victories against the Wallabies and did so convincingly with a 40-12 victory including getting four tries from Beauden Barrett. They really have shown why they are the best in the entire world. Argentina on the other hand played really well against the Springboks and because of how well they played, they won 32-19. The Pumas might have to use all of their momentum from Week Two to play against New Zealand as this will be a hard fought and gritty match to watch.

Predictions

James Rowe: New Zealand. While I think it will be fun to watch, the All-Blacks are just simply a better side plus it will be played in front of an All-Blacks crowd.

 

Australia vs South Africa

This match couldn’t be more of one where two demoralized squads will face off against one another. The Wallabies are coming off two straight losses to New Zealand and the Springboks lost badly to a squad that they are decidedly better than. That being said you will see the two teams play in an epic clash in which could be one of the best you will ever see as they don’t want to fall deeper into a hole.

Predictions

James: South Africa. While it was not an easy loss for the Springboks against Argentina, they aren’t trending down like the Wallabies are. Plus South Africa’s forwards are brutal to play against and that will be hard for Australia to keep up with.
