05-10-2023 Daily Predictions Rugby World Cup 2023 New Zealand vs Uruguay

New Zealand vs Uruguay

New Zealand close out the pool stage of the tournament with a match against Uruguay. The All Blacks have been back to their devastating best in the last two matches, scoring an incredible 25 tries. They crushed Italy in a 96-17 last time out, a victory that would have send shivers to the Uruguay team. Los Teros are fresh of a win after beating fellow Tier 2 nation Namibia. The All Blacks have made several changes and rested a number of first team regulars’ but still manage to name a team that can easily put 80 points on the board.

TIP: Uruguay have made seven changes to their team with halfback pairing Felipe Etcheverry and Santiago Arata playing their fourth straight match together. New Zealand have brought in Damian McKenzie at fullback in place of Beauden Barrett, a move that actually improves their attack. Rather surprisingly star playmaker Richie Mo’unga has been retained for this match which means Uruguay can expect an onslaught from the first whistle. The bookies have New Zealand as favorites and I’m also tipping them for the win. The best odds on this bet are as follows: Betway 1.01, Gbets 1.01 and Hollywoodbets 1.01

HEAD-TO-HEAD STATS

New Zealand vs Uruguay

  • This is the first ever meeting between these sides.

Latest results for both teams

NZ beat Italy 96-17 in their last match while Uruguay beat Namibia 36-26 in their last match.  

PREDICTION

The All Blacks team have looked brilliant in attack in the last two matches as they prepare for a quarter final clash against the number one ranked Ireland. These easy wins could backfire on them as they are not been tested, especially in the forwards. Players like McKenzie will be pushing for a first team place while Captain Sam Kane will be looking to get back to full match fitness after his injury. Will Jordan will be odds on favourites to continue his incredible try scoring tally in international rugby. Uruguay have never conceded over 50 points in a World Cup match but that stat will surely change in this match. I am backing the All Blacks to win by 75 points.
