On Gold Beach, New Zealand And South Africa Close Date 6 Rugby Championship 2021 In a lot of promising fights. The All black, Led Ian Foster They are already champions of the tournament but now they want to be undefeated. For their part, Springbox From Jax Ninaber They want to finish a party and destroy the whole party for the party team. They will meet live on Saturday at 6:50 p.m. Star + and ESPN 2.

How they get here: It was not a comfortable situation for the last world champion, as he had three consecutive defeats, two against the Wallabies and 19 to 17 against the All Blacks last weekend. Negative line 2016, which did not occur continuously from four consecutive falls, against Wales, Italy, England and New Zealand.

All Blocks, on the other hand, regained the championship title they lost in a reduced match in 2019, before winning the World Cup in Japan with Springbox. They are unbeaten this year against Tonga, Fiji (two), Australia (three), Argentina (two) and South Africa. They are going for the tenth win of a record season in which they will play 15 Tests (they still have to face the US, Wales, Italy, Ireland and France).

For South Africa, the rematch against New Zealand is a major challenge. They do not want to repeat the negative lines of 2016, with four consecutive falls. The purpose of Springbox is to impose conditions from the beginning with a pack that has proven to be at the same level as the Kiwis.

Keys: The fight of styles was clearly reflected in the opening minutes of the first test in Townsville last Saturday. The All Blocks showed tremendous fluidity in their manipulation, in their quest to break the deadlock by running the ball and taking advantage of their many attacking options. With 25 attempts they lead the figures widely, and have surpassed South Africa with 15 wins. Of the quality shown in the rankings appointed by Ian Foster, the absence of Richie Mounga, Aaron Smith and Samuel Whitelock was not noticed.

South Africa showed how well they use their feet to hurt their rivals. This was confirmed by his attempt to score against New Zealand, which led to Bridge’s welcome error and Nkosi’s conversion. However, Ninaber’s team is called for more courage and is not only dependent on creating kicks and precursors to be loaded, they are also a machine for production breaches to transfer points to Pollard. If you want to return to the farewell victory of the Springbox competition you will have to face more risk.

Background: After playing game number 100 in history, the South Africans and New Zealand meet again to finish the Rugby Championship 2021. This is the fifth match at the neutral ground since the other four World Cups. Cardiff 1999, South Africa won the third place match 22-18; In New Zealand, Yokohama was 23 to 13 in 2019, in London 2015 the semifinals were 20 to 18 and in Melbourne it was 29 to 9 in the quarterfinals from 2003 to 29 to 9.
