All Blacks vs Japan

All Blacks vs Japan

A TEST against Japan which initially seemed one of the most inconsequential of New Zealand’s 2018 season has become more significant and contentious because of coach Steve Hansen’s approach to All Blacks selections.

Hansen has selected eight new caps in his squad for the match in Tokyo on Saturday (4.45pm AEDT), the most rookies in one All Blacks squad since 1986 when the so called “Baby Blacks” beat France while most leading players were suspended for their part in a rebel tour to South Africa.

The 23 players selected were part of a squad of 51 picked for New Zealand’s five match tour which began last weekend against Australia in Yokohama and will continue with matches against England, Ireland and Italy.

Hansen’s rationale for playing a second string lineup this weekend, in a Test squeezed into the existing schedule, is to spare his top players for tougher Tests against England and Ireland. Most of the regular All Blacks starters have already left Japan.

Critics argue that handing out test caps to players who aren’t considered among New Zealand’s best cheapens the jersey and the All Blacks’ heritage.

Hansen and his backers have hit back angrily against those claims, saying such measures are necessary in modern rugby because of the workload international players face in a season that runs from February to December.

“We play so many Test matches now and we play so many Super Rugby games that it is a nonsense when you hear people say that they didn’t give Test caps away like this years ago,” Hansen said.

“Well, they only played four or five test matches and probably six or seven provincial games.

“Today we are playing 14 or 15 Test matches and you just can’t ask the same people to do it all the time and expect them to play to the level we expect them to.”

Hansen’s comments have been widely debated.

All Blacks teams in the era he referred to took on tours to Britain and Europe or South Africa which comprised 18 matches and three Tests, or 24 matches and four Tests, and which involved midweek and weekend matches.

They undertook those tours, some lasting three months, usually with only 26 players.

In past eras during the domestic season, some players played for the All Blacks one day and their provinces the next.

Those players also played club rugby and many worked fulltime.

The impression for some in New Zealand remains that Hansen has been profligate with the All Blacks heritage and disrespectful toward Japan, which they’ll meet for only the seventh time in Tests.

Hansen has also framed the match as a selection exercise with relevance to next year’s World Cup in Japan.

“This is a young side, there is no disputing that,” Hansen said.

“But, as I said, the expectation is that they go out and play really well.

“That puts a bit of pressure on them, but you get to see how they perform under that pressure which then gives you an opportunity to make some sound judgments when you need to about the selections that are coming up next year.”

Japan (15-1): Ryohei Yamanaka, Jamie Henry, Will Tupou, Timothy Lafaele, Kenki Fukuoka, Yu Tamura, Yutaka Nagare, Hendrik Tui, Kazuki Himeno, Michael Leitch (c), Wimpie van der Walt, Samuela Anise, Hiroshi Yamashita, Atsushi Sakate, Keita Inagaki

Reserves: Yusuke Niwai, Masataka Mikami, Asaeli Ai Valu, Uwe Helu, Isileli Nakajima, Fumiaki Tanaka, Rikiya Matsuda, Ryoto Nakamura

New Zealand (15-1): Jordie Barrett, Nehe Milner-Skudder, Matt Proctor, Ngani Laumape, Waisake Naholo, Richie Mo’unga, Te Toiroa Tahuriorangi, Luke Whitelock (c), Dalton Papalii, Vaea Fifita, Jackson Hemopo, Patrick Tuipulotu, Angus Ta’avao, Dane Coles, Ofa Tuungafasi

This will be the first time the rwc tournament is to be held in Asia, and also the first time that the event will take place outside the traditional heartland of the Rugby. Tokyo Stadium in Chōfu is considered for the opening match of the 2019 Rugby World Cup, and the final match will be held at International Stadium Yokohama in Kanagawa. Hit the subscribe button now. Or watch free rwc live stream here.

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.

Tony Ward: November Tests are as important as Six Nations in terms of next year’s World Cup

by Robar Toni 0 Comments
Tony Ward: November Tests are as important as Six Nations in terms of next year’s World Cup

Last season was the greatest in the history of Irish rugby. Not only did we succeed in doing what we thought was the impossible – a Grand Slam in an even year – but over the course of the eight months from November through to June we won 10 of the 11 Tests, coming up short in just the second of the three matches in Australia.

It was a remarkable season with Paris, and that drop goal, and Twickenham on St Patrick’s Day, delivering incredible highs given the context of each.

We finished that campaign as we started – not knowing how to lose.

I’m not sure there’s ever been a colder March 17, it was Arctic that day in London, but it didn’t matter a whit.

We are where we are because of the remarkable talent we have at our disposal but also because of the efficient running of professional rugby by the governing body in this country.

The IRFU are still on another planet when it comes to duty of care.

Given the raw material, allied to the processes put in place, where we now are in terms of status was only to be expected.

When Joe Schmidt took up the Ireland reins in 2013 we were at our lowest world ranking in history. We were ninth and lucky to be there.

Now, five years on, with three Six Nations titles, a Grand Slam, a win against New Zealand, a victory in South Africa, plus that landmark series success in Australia, for only the second time, and we are ranked second behind New Zealand with just over two percentage points in it.

Pinch yourself. That’s little old Ireland, where rugby is at best fourth in the national psyche, closing in on New Zealand where the game is an obsession.

We will not lose the run of ourselves because there is a very dangerous schedule coming up. And I’m not referring to the Aviva and the drama set to unfold in less than three weeks’ time when Steve Hansen, Kieran Read and the All Black machine rolls into town.

Other than the odd ‘made-up’ trophy there is nothing tangible over the next four weeks.

Yes, the ranking points do matter but the real incentive, albeit psychological, is in building on the self-belief engendered over the course of 2017/’18.

Schmidt is the best thing to happen Irish rugby and by a distance the best overseas coach ever to come our way.

He knows the relevance of what may seem relatively meaningless internationals against the Italians on Saturday in Chicago and the US Eagles in Dublin three Saturdays on.

This November series is not about the fireworks on November 17, it is about all four matches.

The target for next month must be four wins from four.

Do I believe we will achieve that? If I’m honest, no because even on our home patch, in what is guaranteed to be a very special occasion, the All Blacks are still operating in another gear.

Standard

Outside of the Test and Super Rugby arenas, the standard of play in the Mitre 10 Cup – the third tier in New Zealand – has to be seen to be appreciated.

Can we win? Of course we can given the coaching genius at the helm. And I use that term deliberately and conservatively.

I will be astonished if the Ireland head coach is not already earmarked for the New Zealand hot-seat post-Hansen and Japan 2019.

Back to Soldier Field and the kick-off to a hectic Test year embracing 14 international matches before we pitch up to face the Scots in Yokohama on September 22.

This November series matters every bit as much as the defence of our Grand Slam come the Six Nations in February.

However strange that might seem, the psychological build-up to Japan – where the knock-out draw, should we make it through, is horrendous – begins now if we are to add a few more substantial bricks to what was achieved on the trip Down Under back in June.

Indeed, of all the Test games scheduled over the next 11 months, the last few warm-ups in August/September against the Italians, Welsh and English will be the least important.

A couple of issues also cropped up over the weekend.

In the summer World Rugby CEO Brett Gosper suggested that the power of the Television Match Official (TMO) to interject would be pared back. Unfortunately that is not proving to be the case.

How often do we see referees getting caught up in conversation with the TMO while the game is live.

Apart from the referee being unable to concentrate fully on what he is seeing, it is shifting rugby ever closer to the stop-start nature of American football.

In the Munster/Glasgow game at Thomond the interjection regarding the grounding of the ball for a breathtaking Warriors try was frustrating but sadly typical of what is developing.

The same afternoon I watched Ross Byrne’s younger brother Harry deliver a masterclass for Lansdowne against Cork Con in the AIL. He’s now ready.

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.

Otherwise, you can always count on us. Here at The Roar we will have live scores and a blog of the match.

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.

Prediction
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.

FIERCE enemies Australia and New Zealand have both endorsed the All Blacks’ use of the haka after the tradition Maori war dance came under fierce criticism.

Ahead of the first Bledisloe Cup – the Rugby Championship opener – reported comments in a rugby book questioned the value of the haka in the modern era.

The All Blacks will perform the haka as usual

But support from the All Blacks was matched by the Wallabies, who are also looking for a more extensive indigenous recognition for their jersey in future.

Said New Zealand flanker Sam Cane: “From an All Blacks point of view we love doing the haka.

“We’re well aware of the strong history that it has and it’s part of who we are as All Blacks – it’s as strong and powerful as ever, in my opinion.”

Wallaby halfback Will Genia jumped to the All Blacks defence saying he didn’t believe the haka was over-commercialised.

He said: “They don’t do it for commercial purpose. They do it because it is something that is important to them in terms of their culture.

“From our perspective, we have an incredible amount of respect for it.”

But All Blacks star Sonny Bill Williams is still ruled out

The squad, trimmed down from 36, includes only two uncapped players in outside backs Tom Banks and Jack Maddocks.

That’s after Rory Arnold, Curtis Rona and Sefa Naivalu were cut from the preliminary training squad.

All Blacks centre Sonny Bill Williams has been ruled out for both Tests against Australia to continue a horror injury run that also saw him miss the entire France series on home soil.

Williams missed the first two Test against France with a knee injury and hasn’t played since damaging a shoulder joint in the third Test.
