Rugby World Cup 2019 winner predictions

If current history is anything to go by, you’d be foolish to bet against New Zealand this year. The All Blacks have a 77% winning record in test match rugby and have held the top spot in the World Rugby Rankings longer than all other teams combined. Plus, there’s the small matter of them being two-time defending champions in the biggest tournament in international rugby.

ExpressVPN expects the All Blacks to beat South Africa in the opening match and claim a third consecutive world title.
