After losing the opening game of the tournament to hosts France, New Zealand have got better every game and now look like the team to beat in this final. They were far too good for Argentina last week and while this will be a much tougher assignment, their level of performance has been a joy to behold the past couple of weeks.


South Africa are now just 80 minutes away from defending their world title after they edged England in a bruising contest last week. The Springboks will feel like they got away with one in that game as they failed to take control and only took the lead for the first time in the dying stages. A much better performance will be needed here and questions may need to be asked about their physical condition after two energy-sapping encounters in succession.


New Zealand and South Africa will lock horns as they do battle for the title of world champions. The All Blacks come into this as slight favourites but there is very little to split the two teams. They have shared three wins apiece in their last six encounters to highlight how closely matched they are but with New Zealand looking extremely strong with the ball as the tournament has progressed, they are the preference to lift the Webb Ellis Cup.

BETTING TIP: New Zealand to win
