New Zealand vs South Africa Prediction
The two sides played out a 16-16 draw over the summer, with Rassie Erasmus’ men showing how far they’ve come in recent months. That result, along with the defeat by Australia, appeared to puncture New Zealand’s aura of invincibility.
It’s going to come down to the wire this one, with little to separate the two teams, but I think the All Blacks remain psychologically superior – despite their recent setbacks. Victory for New Zealand, but only just.
Predicted Score: New Zealand 21 South Africa 18
