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.
Well, someone clearly didn’t tell Eddie Jones and the rest of the England team. England played with heart and targeted New Zealand’s fringes with power, recording one of the biggest upsets in the history of the sport. England will now head to the final against South Africa as worthy favorites to win the tournament. Can they put together another perfect game?
