The Rugby Championship 2018 Edition: Week Six Predictions

rugby-championship-logo-806

Argentina vs Australia

This game will come down to see who will get the wooden spoon of the competition as both sides here will be playing for pride. That being said though, Argentina has shown how good they can be and have been very impressive. They might have lost to New Zealand last week, but they have already beaten Australia in this tournament and probably will use that to their advantage. The Wallabies on the other hand played well in their contest against South Africa, but the Springboks proved to be too much as Australia lost 23-12. Things are seemingly trending down for the Wallabies, but watch them come back and fight hard against the Pumas.

Predictions

James Rowe: Argentina. I really have been impressed by the Pumas and with the Wallabies floundering, I just think Argentina has this in the bag.

 

South Africa vs New Zealand

The two bitter rivals face off in the last week of the season, but the Springboks won the first contest 36-34 and hope to use that to their advantage. They are after all coming off a victory from last week so they have a lot of momentum. The All-Blacks could play this lightly as they have already clinched the title, but this will be against one of their nemesis so don’t expect them to hold anything back. They are going to play hard and they are going not only want to win, but also have bragging rights. It could be a great one to watch.

Predictions

James: South Africa. While I think New Zealand will make a game out of this, if they get any whiff of a possible injury, they will not keep any of them in. Plus the Springboks have a lot of momentum coming into this matchup, I expect this to be great to watch.
