13-08-2021 Daily Prediction Rugby Championship South Africa vs New Zealand

South Africa vs NZ

The home team will be looking to make it two wins from two when they face the All Blacks at Ellis Park. The Springboks easily brushed aside the visitors 26-10 in the first test and will again fancy their chances against the All Blacks. The visitors have responded to that defat by selecting Richie Mo’unga at ten and it remains to be seen if that makes a difference.  

TIP: The All Blacks will be desperate to avoid losing four matches in a row for the first time since 1998 when they lost five in a row. Another defeat for them could see the end of the road for Coach Foster. The Boks have no such problems as they welcome back stalwart Duane Vermeulen back into the team. The bookies have the Boks as favorites and I’m also tipping them for the win. These are the best odds for this bet: Worldsportsbetting 1.50, Playabets 1.47 and Sunbet 1.46


South Africa vs NZ

  • The last five matches between the sides have seen two wins apiece with one draw.
  • The Springboks have won the last two matches between the sides.

Latest results for both teams

The Boks beat NZ 26-10 in their last match


This match will be a make a break situation for NZ as another loss could see heads rolling. They will be facing a daunting task at Ellis Park while the Springboks will be again counting on their powerful pack to take them to victory. They were dominant in the scrum but will hope to enjoy more success with their driving maul. I am predicting another Springbok win by more than 10 points.
