It’ll be the first time the tournament’s been staged outside of the games traditional strongholds and with less than two years to go excitement is growing right across the country. Local hero a youmu guru Maru was just one of the home stars and attendants along with former World Player of the Year Wells as Shane Williams who finished his playing career in Japan.

There are some mouth-watering clashes on the opening weekend including the heavyweight contests between France and Argentina and New Zealand and South Africa. Host Japan kicked the tournament off in Tokyo on the opening night against the top European qualifier which looks likely to be Romania Tyson.

The tournament will want the hosted it to do well but from personal experience sometimes that doesn’t happen. So we’re but I think the Japanese would be great hosts. As a host country, we hope Japan will laugh will reach the peak that they did in 2015 but to be playing at home now the fans know when their team will be playing, who they’re gonna be playing against and what venues are gonna be out.

Jonny Wilkinson says..

There is definitely as you got to the last rung it was kind of like which group do you want and okay the one that England of landed in is the one that the conventional view would be the most challenging but at the same time there are serious arguments for why that would be one of the best ones to be involved in you’ve got to go there realizing that you take on the best you just got to be defensively, offensively, spirit wise, tactically, technically phenomenal in every area. if you want to win.


Bryan Habana says..

I think we’ll be relatively happy with the pool drop obviously Australia is the tough one and probably the favorites in that group. However, Georgia very good side that progressed massively over the last few years it is going to be tough but you look at some of the other groups. I think wheels would be relatively happy with the way it’s come out.


Shane Williams says..

I’m really excited with the prospect of playing the host nation Japan who will be rooming with the excitement of the way they played in the last World Cup and how they’re gone you know since then and you know rugby is growing in Japan. there’s a lot of excitement building around this. You know I’m excited about the prospect of hopefully being you know a member that squad because over I think everyone will probably be calling pool C.

Rugby: Bledisloe Cup 2018 – kick-off time for All Blacks and Wallabies first test

Rugby: Bledisloe Cup 2018 – kick-off time for All Blacks and Wallabies first test

Rugby: Bledisloe Cup 2018 – Late change in kick-off time for All Blacks and Wallabies first test

The kick-off for the first Bledisloe Cup test between the All Blacks and Wallabies has been brought forward.

The first match of the Rugby Championship, and the first of three Bledisloe Cup tests, will get underway at 9.45pm (NZT), 20 minutes earlier than initially publicised.

It is understood that the change was requested six weeks ago, but Sanzaar made the decision midweek. Rugby Australia were still reporting the game as getting underway at 10.05pm NZT earlier this week, while New Zealand Rugby were promoting the game as a 10.05pm kick-off on social media this week as well.

So, rugby fans be aware – make sure you don’t miss the first 20 minutes of the game when you tune in to watch on TV follow the New Zealand Herald’s stellar live coverage online.

The Black Ferns, who play beforehand, will still get underway at 7.15pm.


Wallabies vs All Blacks live stream: How to watch Bledisloe 1 online and on TV


The Wallabies have yet another chance to break their Bledisloe Cup drought when they host the All Blacks tonight in the first Test. This is The Roar’s guide to watching the game online and on TV.

The match is scheduled to begin at 7:45pm (AEST) tonight, August 18 at ANZ Stadium.

The Wallabies trimmed down their squad to 28 on Sunday, with captain Michael Hooper and senior players Scott Sio and Dane Haylett-Petty set to overcome fitness concerns for tonight’s clash.

And, if history is anything to go by, they will need the trio if they are to stand any chance of taking down the All Blacks.

While the Australians won the last meeting between the two sides, it was only their second victory in their last 19 matches against New Zealand.

The All Blacks travel to Sydney confident of overcoming the Wallabies having won seven of their last ten games at ANZ Stadium.

In preparation for the Bledisloe Cup opener, they played two 40-minute trial games, beating Otago 32-0 and Canterbury 40-5.

How to watch the match on TV

The match is being broadcast on TV in Australia through two networks.

The first option is Foxtel, who will be broadcasting every Wallabies international game this season.

Channel 501 will be covering Saturday night’s game, with a pre-game show beginning at 7pm (AEST), after the Wallaroos game finishes.

Coverage will wrap up at 10pm after a 30-minute post-game show.

For free-to-air viewers, Channel 10 will be broadcasting Saturday night’s match.

Their coverage also begins at 7pm and is scheduled to finish at 9:45pm.

The match can be viewed in high definition on Channels 13 and 210 for both free-to-air viewers and Foxtel customers.

Alternatively, you can catch the game in standard definition on Channels 10 and 110 respectively.

How to live stream the match online

If you wish to watch the clash online, there are two ways to do it.

The first is available to Foxtel subscribers. They can stream the coverage of the match through the Foxtel App. This app is free to download and can be used if you have a valid login.

Alternatively, if you are not an existing Foxtel customer, you can still watch the game online. You will need to use Foxtel Now instead. Foxtel Now is a streaming-only option, with subscription packages available for purchase.

You can also tune into the game on the Tenplay website, where you can stream the game for free.

Wallabies vs All Blacks Bledisloe Cup Game 1 preview and prediction

It is roughly 9:45pm on the 3rd of August 2002.

(Most of) ANZ Stadium is standing, with bated breath, as Matt Burke stands over an 81st minute penalty. The siren has sounded, and his Wallabies are down by a point, 14-13.

If he kicks true, the Bledisloe Cup will be retained. True to script, the original Ice man steadies himself, before slotting the Bundaberg branded rugby ball straight through the middle of the posts.

Away from the ground, Prime Minister John Howard is elated, and quickly sets the alarm on his spanking new Sanyo SCP-5300 (the first ever flip phone with an in-built camera) for 7am, at which point he will wake up and go for a leisurely stroll, dressed head-to-toe in a Wallabies tracksuit.

All is well in the world.

Fast forward to the 18th of August 2018.

It has been more than 16 years since the Wallabies last held the Bledisloe aloft. In that time, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram have all been invented. Australia has seen four Prime ministers come and go, and John Howard’s Sanyo hasn’t seen the light of day for more than a decade.

Every year, rugby fans around Australia entertain the thought of the Bledisloe returning to our shores.

It begs the question…

Could the 2018 Bledisloe be different?

Starting fast: Not an if, but a must
First and foremost, it is worth noting that Australia has won Game One of the Bledisloe only once in the last 10 years. It doesn’t take the most astute of observers to realise that it makes wrestling the cup back from the All Blacks awfully difficult if they fall behind 1-0 this evening.

It would appear that Michael Cheika has tipped his hat to this point. His internal trial at Leichardt Oval in the build-up was a more than useful hit out for his non-Waratahs squad members.

Whether it translates into a fast start come tonight remains to be seen. However, you’d be hard pressed to find any fan that didn’t like the concept.

The battle of the forwards
Cheika has gone all-in on the set piece with his selections 1 through 8. Izack Rodda and Adam Coleman start in the second row, and both are the lineout generals for their respective Super Rugby sides.

Rob Simmons, the caller for the Waratahs, has also won a spot on the bench.

The back row of Lukhan Tui, Michael Hooper and David Pocock is an interesting prospect. Pocock’s on-ball ability is undeniable, and it is a mobile trio.

With Pete Samu providing back-up from the bench, the battle at the breakdown will be extremely intriguing.

The questions arise in the front row.

Scott Sio’s shoulder niggle sees Tom Robertson start, alongside the returning Tatafu Polota-Nau and veteran Sekope Kepu.

Robertson was outstanding for the Waratahs in 2018, particularly in their finals run, and he thoroughly deserves his start.

However, his battle against Owen Franks is as tough as they come. It could be telling.

Taniela Tupou and Tolu Latu will be electric off the bench, expect decent minutes for both.

For the All Blacks, Sam Whitelock and Brodie Retallick are one of the best lock pairings in the world, whilst the evergreen Kieran Read returns from injury to skipper his side.

Desperation and suffocation in defence – the recipe for success
The Wallabies primary issue is not scoring points, it’s in not conceding them. Their attack is at its best, electric, and in Israel Folau and Kurtley Beale, they have two of the form attacking weapons in world rugby. The return of Will Genia should also be a timely boost.

However, if the Wallabies are to win, they need to approach Game One in Sydney with the defensive intensity and line speed they displayed in Game One against Ireland at Suncorp Stadium a couple of months ago.

On that occasion, David Pocock was immense at breakdown time, and the Irish had literally no answer to the ferocity of the wall that was the Wallabies defence that night.

For 80 minutes, Cheika’s men out-enthused, out-tackled, and out-thought a very impressive rugby outfit.

Anything short of that performance will spell defeat for the men in gold.

Why the Wallabies can win
Form. The last time the Wallabies clashed with the All Blacks, they came away victors.

While that doesn’t (and shouldn’t) translate to them starting as favourites in Game One as Steve Hansen facetiously suggested mid-week, it certainly should instil the belief in the Wallabies playing group that they have the ability to win, and win well.

Why the Wallabies can’t win
Form! The All Blacks are still the absolute gold standard in world rugby, and they have a scarcely believable record in recent years.

Since Steve Hansen took over from Graham Henry in 2012, they have won 76 games from 85 starts at a respectable 89.5 per cent win rate. Ridiculous.

They have a clinical, accurate forward pack, which so often lays a winning platform for an enigmatic and highly damaging backline.

I think the All Blacks starting XV isa better-rounded and more complete side. However, Cheika’s bench has a few weapons, particularly in the front row. If used properly, it could make for a frenetic last 20 minutes when bodies start getting tired.

I think it will be an extremely close fixture, however the experience and X-Factor of the All Blacks should just be enough to get the job done at a bumper ANZ Stadium.

Live of All Blacks v France rugby (NewZealand) Test at Paris’ Stade de France ,Live Score,Update ,blog

NEW Zealand captain Kieran Read wants his team to honour the country’s war dead with a performance befitting world champions against France on Armistice Day.

The All Blacks tackle hosts France at the Stade de France in Paris on Sunday (6.45am AEDT), 100 years since more than 13,000 New Zealanders were killed and another 35,000 injured in fighting on the Western Front during the First World War.

“It’s a great day to be playing rugby — Armistice Day — and it’s really important for us to put in a good showing,” said Read of the day in 1918 when the Great War ended on the Western Front.

“A lot of New Zealanders lost their lives and a lot of them are still (buried) here in France. We really want to respect that and we’re looking forward to it.”

More than 100,000 New Zealanders out of a then population of just one million served in some capacity in the First World War, with almost 17,000 dying in total across the different theatres with more than 41,000 injured.

Quite apart from marking that special occasion, Read is simply keen for his teammates to put on a good showing, particularly coming just three weeks after their second defeat of 2017, 23-18 to Australia in Brisbane.

“Our main objective is going out there and playing well,” said the 107-times capped 32-year-old loose forward.

“You’re not necessarily going to score heaps of tries or blow teams off the park, but you’ve just got to have a really good attitude and if we can see that I’m sure we’ll do well.” Read acknowledged that France will pose a very different challenge to that which they faced in the recent Rugby Championship against South Africa, Australia and Argentina, in which they won all six matches with four-try bonus points before their surprise defeat to the Wallabies in a third encounter this year.


— Physical challenge —

“We’re certainly going to have to front up physically. Against northern hemisphere teams our forward pack’s going to be crucial — it’s a given — and then from that, just to execute our skills, which is important.

“And being able to adapt as well, the French will certainly put pressure on us in different ways.” New Zealand have not lost to France since a 27-22 defeat in Dunedin in 2009, winning 10 straight since.

In fact since the 2007 World Cup in France, the All Blacks have only lost four times to northern hemisphere sides: to France in Dunedin, then to England at Twickenham in 2012, Ireland in Chicago last year and the British & Irish Lions in July.

After this match they will go on to face Scotland and Italy, two teams against which they have never lost.

France will have their work cut out after a spate of injuries weakened their playing resources, forcing head coach Guy Noves to pick a new and untried halfback pairing with 20-year-old scrum-half Antoine Dupont making his first start and 21-year-old Anthony Belleau given his debut at fly-half.

“It’s an unknown in terms of some of their personnel but the team over the last couple of years has probably improved in how they’re playing the game,” added Read.

“They’re certainly showing some of their old flair and willingness to throw the ball around.

“They’re the team that generates the most offloads in world rugby and there’s some great quick ball as well so their ruck speed is really fast.

“Look, we’ve just got to be prepared to defend for a long period of time and when we get our chances we can put them under pressure.”


France (15-1): Nans Ducuing, Teddy Thomas, Mathieu Bastareaud, Geoffrey Doumayrou, Yoann Huget, Anthony Belleau, Antoine Dupont; Louis Picamoles, Kevin Gourdon, Judicael Cancoriet, Paul Gabrillagues, Sebastien Vahaamahina, Rabah Slimani, Guilhem Guirado (c), Jefferson Poirot

Reserves: Clement Maynadier, Raphael Chaume, Daniel Kotze, Paul Jedrasiak, Anthony Jelonch, Baptiste Serin, Francois Trinh-Duc, Damian Penaud.

New Zealand (15-1): Damian McKenzie, Waisake Naholo, Ryan Crotty, Sonny Bill Williams, Rieko Ioane, Beauden Barrett, Aaron Smith; Kieran Read (c), Sam Cane, Vaea Fifita, Sam Whitelock, Luke Romano, Nepo Laulala, Dane Coles, Kane Hames

Reserves: Codie Taylor, Wyatt Crockett, Ofa Tu’ungafasi, Scott Barrett, Matt Todd, TJ Perenara, Lima Sopoaga, Anton Lienert-Brown

RLWC Live Preview: Kangaroos v Cedars (Australia v Lebanon)

by Jon Shon 0 Comments
RLWC Live Preview: Kangaroos v Cedars (Australia v Lebanon)

Australia v Lebanon
Sydney Football Stadium
Saturday, 8pm

Rugby Live

It was the chip and chase that stopped the nation, but Lebanon will need a lot more from Mitchell Moses and his teammates if the Cedars are to pull off a monumental upset against Australia in a World Cup that has already seen a pronounced rekindling of the international game.

Brad Fittler’s men will head into Saturday’s clash as rank outsiders, but having already accounted for France and shown plenty of fight against England, the Cedars won’t be overawed by the occasion.

A win or draw would guarantee a spot in the final eight, while a loss – coupled with an English victory over France – would see them face the winner of the New Zealand-Tonga match in the quarter-finals.

It was business as usual for the Kangaroos last week as Mal Meninga’s revamped line-up took care of the French with Wade Graham bagging four tries on the left edge.

Top spot in Pool A is all but assured, with Australia likely to take on Samoa in Darwin in their final eight showdown.

The Kangaroos have made a stack of changes to the side that downed France with Valentine Holmes replacing Billy Slater at fullback while Tom Trbojevic and Cameron Munster make up a new-look centre pairing. James Maloney will partner Cooper Cronk in the halves while Boyd Cordner and Matt Gillett return in the back row.

Lebanon have also made a few changes with Chris Saab (concussion) cleared to return in the back row while Anthony Layoun and James Elias will feature in the backline.


Why Australia can win: Unlike Marmelo, this is a favourite you can back with plenty of confidence. The Aussies showed last week that you can miss the start and still win by 46 lengths and you get the feeling something similar could be brewing once more. The form of Cameron Munster on debut was eye-catching and you can expect a repeat performance from the premiership-winning playmaker when he makes the move to the three-quarter line. His centre partner, Tom Trbojevic, was kept quiet by the French last week. That should spell trouble for the Cedars.

Why Lebanon can win: Spurred on by what should be a boisterous crowd at Allianz Stadium, the Cedars have little to lose. So long as England beat the French, they will make the playoffs. In theory, they can even top Pool A if they beat Australia by 35 points and hope the French keep it close in the other match. Their best hope lies with star trio Mitch Moses, Robbie Farah and Michael Lichaa. If the likes of Alex Twal and Tim Mannah can hold their own in the middle then that will give their talented playmakers a chance to work their magic. It’s a long shot, but anything is possible in a two horse race.

The history: This will be their first meeting.

Match officials: Referee: James Child. Touch judges: Chris Sutton and Belinda Sleeman. Video referee: Bernard Sutton.

Televised: Channel Seven – Live Coverage from 7:30pm.

NRL.com predicts: The form line suggests a big Australian win, and while Lebanon might be the sentimental favourites, it’s hard to see them going the distance against a champion stayer. Kangaroos by 52.

Rugby League World Cup: Tonga-Kiwis clash close to a sell-out

A capacity crowd is expected for tomorrow’s Rugby League World Cup clash between New Zealand and Tonga in Hamilton.

Click Here To Watch Rugby Live Coverage : New Zealand Rugby Live Streaming Kiwis

Tournament organisers report less than 1500 tickets remain available for the highly anticipated match at Waikato Stadium and a sellout crowd of just under 25,000 is expected.

The high interest comes after more than 18,000 fans enjoyed a carnival atmosphere at last week’s Pacific island showdown that saw Tonga outclass Samoa 32-18 to claim their second pool round victory.

With the Kiwis and Tonga both unbeaten, tomorrow’s game will decide which side finishes top of Pool B to take an easier path into the knock-out stages.

The winner will face the third-placed side from Pool A Lebanon and remain on the opposite side of the draw to reigning champions Australia, while the loser will have a much more difficult assignment against Fiji, the top side from Pool D.

The Kiwis remain favourites but their is a groundswell of support for Tonga who have been the darlings of the tournament so far.

Both teams will complete their preparations today with their final captain’s training runs at Waikato Stadium.

Rugby: Singapore keen on joining new Indo Pacific Rugby Championship

Rugby: Singapore keen on joining new Indo Pacific Rugby Championship

SINGAPORE – The Republic is exploring the idea of forming a franchise to play in the newly formed Indo Pacific Rugby Championship (IPRC), which is slated to start in 2019.

Singapore Rugby Union (SRU) vice-president Sunny Seah told The Straits Times that the national sports association attended a presentation by the new league’s representatives here last week.

Seah said: “It is still very conceptual at this stage, but we see it as an opportunity and are quite excited about it.”

The IPRC is the brainchild of Australian mining magnate Andrew Forrest, who introduced the new competition in September in response to the Australian Rugby Union’s axing of Western Australian side Western Force from next year’s Super Rugby competition.

The 18-team Super Rugby competition, which also featured the Japan and Singapore co-based Sunwolves, will be reduced to 15 sides next season. South African sides Cheetahs and Southern Kings are the other two teams that have been axed.

Billionaire Forrest is based in Western Australia, and a supporter of the Western Force.

According to recent media reports, the IPRC will feature six franchises, including the Western Force, and will start in March 2019. This will bring it head to head with the Super Rugby season, which runs from February to August.

Other than Singapore, the new league’s organisers have reportedly been in contact with countries such as China, Japan, India, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Fiji, Hong Kong and South Korea on forming franchises.

SRU’s Seah said: “The interesting thing is that it’s not just about the men’s 15s; they plan to have competitions for the women’s 15s, as well as the men’s and women’s sevens. It seems like a pretty big deal.”

However, the clash in the Super Rugby and IPRC league seasons would also mean that top players may choose Super Rugby over the new competition if they want to be selected for Australia, especially with the World Cup looming in 2019 in Japan.

With only a few exceptions, the Wallabies’ selection policies dictate that players must play for a franchise in Super Rugby, which features four Australian sides next season, to be considered for selection.

But Seah said: “They have promised us that there’d be marquee players, probably former Wallabies, and they will not be concentrated in an Australian super team that plays against the rest of the world.

“These players will be distributed among the franchises and they will, in turn, help the various teams develop rugby in their respective countries through clinics and training.”

National player Kyle Chong is understandably excited about the possibility of playing in the new championship.

The No. 10 said: “It would be a great opportunity and one that I would relish. As a player, you always want to improve and be better.

“The only way to do that and improve individually, and as team, is to play with, and against, better players.

“The concept is fantastic and I’m keen to hear more plans as it develops with the organisers and SRU.”

Star All Blacks wing Rieko Ioane in doubt for French test with dose of mumps

Star All Blacks wing Rieko Ioane in doubt for French test with dose of mumps

What is it with the All Blacks and mumps? A second unrelated outbreak of the viral disease threatens to throw a serious spanner in the works of their back-three division to face France next weekend.

All Blacks coach Steve Hansen revealed shortly before the team decamped from London to Paris, via train, that star wing and contender for World Rugby’s breakthrough player of the year award, Rieko Ioane, had come down with an untimely case of the mumps.

Hansen confirmed Ioane’s outbreak was unrelated to the earlier case of mumps suffered by young midfielder Jack Goodhue that forced him to delay his departure from New Zealand and miss the chance to make his first appearance for the All Blacks, against the Baabaas at Twickenham on Saturday.


The coach is also confident the right steps have been taken to ensure there is no spread of the virus through the All Blacks camp.

“The doc has done a great job, and we’ve isolated him, so we’re not worried about it spreading.”

But Hansen did admit that Ioane’s now cast-iron spot on the left wing for the first of three tests on this tour, against Les Bleus at the Stade de France on Saturday night (Sunday morning NZT), now had to be in doubt.

“It’s unrelated to Jack Goodhue’s because they haven’t been in contact, but it has obviously come out of Auckland somewhere,” Hansen said of Ioane’s affliction.

“It will be touch and go though if he is available [to face France]. He trained this morning, so we’ll just have to see how well he comes through the week.”

If Ioane was to miss the French test it would be a major blow for the All Blacks as they look to finish their year on a high point, after already suffering two defeats and a draw through their 2017 programme.

The 20-year-old Auckland has become their principal strike weapon through an outstanding campaign in his first prolonged run of test rugby after being introduced on last year’s November tour.

He has scored eight tries in his eight test appearances this year (he has 10 caps all told) and has been one of the All Blacks’ most consistent performers through an impressive campaign. The 103kg human freight train has not only revealed an outstanding nose for the line, but he has been right up there in almost every other facet of his game.

He is excellent under the high ball, goes looking for work, is sound positionally and has a pretty fair distribution game too when the occasion warrants. He started the year at centre in Super Rugby but has made a fine fist of his shift to the wing and looks entrenched as the first-choice All Black No 11.

So well has Ioane played that the All Blacks coaches have had the luxury of jettisoning 54-test wing Julian Savea (with 46 tries) with the message he needs to have a big off-season and rediscover his enjoyment of the game.

Hansen shrugged off any concerns about his depleted back-three stock being reduced even further – “It’s not too bad,” he said of his options outside Ioane who also missed the third test against the British and Irish Lions with illness – but the reality is that with Ben Smith, Nehe Milner-Skudder and Israel Dagg all unavailable, and Savea unwanted, they have limited options.

Waisake Naholo looks to have the test right wing spot sewn up, and if Ioane were to miss the French clash, Seta Tamanivalu (three caps in 2016) would likely be next cab off the rank. The other specialist wing in the touring squad is North Harbour’s Matt Duffie, though Hansen might be reluctant to pitch him in for an international debut, while utility value players such as Damian Mckenzie and Anton Lienert-Brown could also plug a hole if need be.

The All Blacks have won 10 consecutive tests against France since they lost to them 27-22 at Carisbrook in 2009.

Exclusive: France to play first ever home Six Nations game outside of Paris in Marseille in 2018

France will host a home Six Nations fixture outside of Paris for the first time in their history next year when they move their match with Italy to Marseille.The round three meeting scheduled to take place on Feb 23 2018 will be hosted at the Orange Vélodrome stadium in Marseille, which was recently renovated for the Euro 2016 football tournament.

The venue, home to the city’s football team Marseille, is now the second-largest stadium in France, after the Stade de France in Saint-Denis, with a capacity of over 67,000.

Last year it hosted both Top 14 semi-finals on back-to-back days between La Rochelle and Toulon, before eventual winners Clermont defeated Racing 92.

Toulon will also play a regular season match at the same venue against Montpellier in April next year.

France head coach Guy Noves on Wednesday also announced his squad for the upcoming November international fixtures, when France will face New Zealand on two occasions, in Paris at the Stade de France on Nov 11 and then at the Groupama Stadium in Lyon on November 14.

In total 31 players have been called up for the first fixture with the All Blacks and for the following Test matches against South Africa and Japan, with an additional 14 players named to participate in the mid-week match against New Zealand in Lyon.
