27-08-2022 Daily Prediction Rugby International Sevens Series New Zealand vs Fiji

New Zealand vs Canada

This is the final leg of the Sevens Series being hosted by the USA and this match will see NZ playing Canada. Neither team is in contention for the title but they will be looking for form as the Sevens World Cup is just a couple months away.

TIP: Canada are currently 14th on the table while NZ are in the unusual position of 9th as they missed the opening few legs of the tour due to the Covid pandemic. Despite this they have steadily climbed the table and will be looking to end the tour on a high. The bookies have New Zealand as favourites and I am also tipping them for the win. These are the best odds for this bet: Worldsportsbetting 1.04, Playabets 1.03 and Sunbet 1.04


New Zealand vs Canada

  • New Zealand have won the last nine matches against Canada
  • The last time Canada beat NZ was in 2017.

Latest results for both teams

NZ beat Australia 26-12 in their last match while Canada lost 19-17 to Samoa in their last match.


The NZ sevens team no longer has the out and out pace men like in the past but these days they bring a lot of physicality to the game so the Canadians need to be careful at the rucks as they have the tendency to power their way through the rucks. Canada are in a rebuilding phase and need to avoid turnover ball because this is when the Kiwis are at their best. I am predicting a NZ win by 14 points.
