Rugby Union World CupTested by an impressive Argentina but failing to drop a match, the All Blacks comfortably saw off the rest of their Pool C rivals to book a place in the quarterfinals against ‘bogey’ nation France.

The All Blacks silenced all critics when delivering Le Bleu a demoralizing 62-13 thrashing, before surviving a typically spirited South Africa in the final four to make their second-consecutive World Cup final.

Australia were widely tipped by the greater rugby community to struggle in the ‘Group of Death’, but apparently no one told Michael Cheika’s men, who topped Pool A undefeated thanks to wins over Fiji, Uruguay, host nation England and Wales.

Surviving a real scare at the hands of Scotland in the quarterfinals, the Wallabies produced an impressive and gritty effort to end Argentina’s claims last weekend and set up a dream decider in this weekend’s 2015 Rugby World Cup final.

Australia have already contested their best year in International rugby for the best part of a decade in 2015, capped with success in the recent Rugby Championship and their position in the World Cup final.

A statistic that is sure to add extra spice to the World Cup final, Australia and New Zealand remain tied on one win a piece in 2015; the Wallabies claiming an impressive 27-19 win in Sydney on August 8th before the All Blacks responded well with a 47-13 demolition at Eden Park the following week.

Both sides will have full strength teams from which to select and the match will be undoubtedly won in the forwards; whoever can dominate at the scrum and the breakdown is sure to triumph.
