Just two nations remain in the hunt for the Rugby World Cup this year, and the final is set for Paris on Saturday. New Zealand and South Africa will both be chasing history this weekend, as both nations will be looking to win the competition for a record-setting fourth time.

Before Betting On New Zealand vs South Africa

A thrilling World Cup final in France awaits this weekend, as the two standout nations in the competition collide. It will be a second final between the nations, with South Africa landing a historic victory back in 1995 against the All Blacks, with Nelson Mandela handing over the prestigious trophy following a last-gasp drop goal in extra time.

The Springboks have been sensational throughout the tournament, with their only defeat being suffered against Ireland in the group stage. It could be argued that the fatigue could play a role this weekend, as South Africa come into the showpiece match after testing clashes against France and England across the last two weekends. But, that isn’t likely to be an excuse that they will readily use.

New Zealand are also in the hunt for history this weekend, as they target a third World Cup in four editions of the tournament. The All Blacks fell in the semi-finals in Japan in 2019, but they have progressed through this year’s tournament in excellent fashion. New Zealand have bounced back well since defeat against France on matchday one, beating Ireland and Argentina in the quarterfinals and semi-finals, respectively.

The All Blacks will have a point to prove on Saturday after they suffered their heaviest ever defeat against South Africa in the summer. But, their confidence ahead of this final will be sky high based on the fact that they have won each of the previous three World Cup meetings between the nations.
