New Zealand vs Wales Live

New Zealand vs Wales Live | Wales have flattered to deceive so far this autumn. They wasted far too many opportunities in defeat to Australia and that was followed up by a very unconvincing display against Tier 2 nation Georgia.

Presently the All Blacks move into Cardiff. They were ran near to Scotland in Edinburgh a weekend ago, and Steve Hansen will be sharp for his side to put in a greatly improved execution in Cardiff as he goes head to head against Warren Gatland out of the blue since the Lions Tour.

Group News:

Warren Gatland rearranged his group against Georgia, yet the enormous names have been reestablished to the XV for the standoff against the All Blacks. Alun Wyn Jones comes back to commander the side in a forward pack that is unaltered from Wales’ thrashing to Australia a fortnight prior. Scott Williams and Rhys Webb are the main survivors from the side that scratched past Georgia a week ago.

All Blacks captain Kieran Read will miss New Zealand’s last Test of 2017 – a hip issue sees him pass up a major opportunity. Venturing up to chief the side out of the blue is bolt Sam Whitelock, who advances beyond Beauden Barrett and Sam Cane. While Read is out, Rieko Ioane gives better news to the All Blacks – the winger begins subsequent to making a startling recuperation from a shoulder issue endured against Scotland. New Zealand vs Wales Live

Wales: Halfpenny, Amos, S. Williams, O. Williams, S. Evans, Biggar, Webb; R. Evans, Owens, Francis, Ball, A.W. Jones, Shingler, Navidi, Faletau.

Substitutions: Dacey, W. Jones, Brown, Hill, Tipuric, Davies, Priestland, Roberts.

New Zealand: McKenzie; Naholo, Crotty, S.B. Williams, Ioane; B Barrett, Smith; Hames, Taylor, Laulala, Tuipulotu, Whitelock, Squire, Cane, Whitelock

Substitutions: Harris, Crockett, Tu’ungafasi, S Barrett, Todd. Perenara, Sopoaga, Lienert-Brown

Key match-up: Hallam Amos vs. Rieko Ioane

No-one expected Ioane to play against Wales, but his presence is going to provide a huge boost for the All Blacks. It remains to be seen whether his shoulder causes him any jib come Saturday, but New Zealand’s star winger strikes fear into any opponent that he faces.

Battling against Ioane will be a stern test for Amos, a rising star in his own right. Tries against both Australia and Georgia have seen the 23-year-old handed a starting spot against the All Blacks, and the New Zealanders will certainly be keeping an eye on the Dragons wing. With Liam Williams injured, it will be crucial for Wales that Amos continues his great form.

Key Stats

* Wales have not beaten New Zealand since 1953 — the same year that saw Sir Edmund Hillary climb Mount Everest.

* The All Blacks are looking for their 30th consecutive victory over Wales.

* Four of Wales’ starting XV — Rhys Webb, Ken Owens, Alun Wyn Jones and Taulupe Faletau — have already beaten New Zealand this year, with the British & Irish Lions in Wellington.


Cloudy with sunny spells in Cardiff, but cold.


Both sides have had unconvincing autumns. The All Blacks have not been at their free-flowing best and Wales have been far too error prone. Steve Hansen laid into his players after their display against Scotland, and with his words ringing in the player’s ears, they should have far too much for a Wales side in transition.

Wales vs New Zealand

Wales vs New Zealand | WARREN Gatland, the former New Zealand hooker who coaches Wales, doesn’t believe the All Blacks are ever vulnerable.The flatterer also said this week they could put out a fourth, fifth or sixth best side and still beat most other teams.

Gatland was purring because he didn’t want to rile up New Zealand before their rugby Test in Cardiff on Saturday (Sunday 4.15am AEDT).Wales has lost 29 successive Tests to New Zealand, including 10 on Gatland’s watch.

But if he had said they were vulnerable, nobody could argue with him. Since beating South Africa 57-0 in mid-September, when some observers believed the All Blacks were occupying another universe, the team has come back to earth. Wales vs New Zealand

Wales vs New Zealand

The All Blacks have been vulnerable, and lost two tTsts this year for the first time since 2011. But even in the face of yellow cards, penalties, and a welter of handling errors, the All Blacks have still proved tough to take out.

Newcomers have had an immediate effect, even when teamwork has taken time to gel.

That’s been the positive for coach Steve Hansen.

“I thought 2016 would be a tough year (after the post-Rugby World Cup retirements) but we got through it pretty well and unscathed from an adversity point of view, apart from Chicago,” Hansen said. Wales vs New Zealand

Australia vs Scotland

Australia vs Scotland | Scotland scored six splendid tries in their first match, so why are fans stressed over confronting Australia? All things considered, the way that their adversaries that day, Samoa, scored five doesn’t look good for Scotland’s guard.

Following a weekend ago’s thrashing to New Zealand, Scotland mentor Gregor Townsend has rolled out four improvements, drafting in Simon Berghan, Grant Gilchrist, Sean Maitland and Ryan Wilson.

Wallabies hooker Stephen Moore will begin his 129th and last test coordinate as he plans to resign from rugby.

“It’s vital that we give him the send-off into retirement that he merits,” said captain Michael Hooper of Moore. “He’s held in such high respect by every one of us here and every one of the players back in Australia who have played with him. It would be incredible for us to turn out this end of the week and show the amount we’ve enhanced since the late spring.” Australia vs Scotland

What are they saying?

Gregor Townsend on Australia 

“It’s moving on – we play the current No 3 team in the world – arguably the best attacking team in the world.

“Australia beat New Zealand a few weeks ago. They were very good against Wales and had a lot of the game on a wet day against England, so we know we are playing one of the form teams in the world right now. If we drop our standards, we are not going to win.

“We’ve got to have the same endeavour [as the All Blacks game], the same mindset, the defensive performance in the first half especially, and what we did in the second half attack-wise – and then take it to another level.

“That’s the benefit of having another game this week. It is great for our guys that they get to go again. Yes, they are disappointed that they didn’t get the win, but we have another opportunity as a group to play a brilliant side and work to find a way to win.” Australia vs Scotland

“They have improved a lot since then. They are a team on the up. The longer they have been together has helped them. They have excellent coaches. Michael Cheika being one, Stephen Larkham being another.

“Their fitness has improved a lot. I know that was something Southern Hemisphere commentators were talking about with Super Rugby. They look a very fit team. It’s the last game of their tour. They are probably hoping for dry weather given how wet it was last week [at Twickenham]. Australia vs Scotland
