This match up will likely determine the outright No. 2 spot in world rankings, so both teams will be desperate to win. While the Africans seemingly lift against the All Blacks, they have struggled to hit top form against the Wallabies and will look to remedy that on home soil at Newlands, where they have a long unbeaten record against Australia. I feel the Boks will find their inner mongrel and outmuscle the Aussies, who are still looking unsettled in both team selections and performance.

With Argentina improving every match, and always a greater danger on home soil, this will be no easy game for the All Blacks, especially after some inner turmoil following Cruden's sacking for disciplinary reasons. The AB's do, though, have the depth to cover him with Barrett, and will also welcome back a few injured stars including Kaino and Messam. I expect the fresh faces will lift the AB's, and while the Puma's will push them at home, I am tipping a win for the All Blacks.
