All three the other Southern Hemisphere teams in action this weekend were announced this morning, with changes all over the place as the coaches use one last match to tinker before the World Cup squads need to be selected.

South Africa’s opponents Argentina have made 7 changes to the team that won in Durban. Bear in mind that the team that humiliated the Boks had 11 changes made to it from the previous weekend, so do not think that changes count in our favour at all.

Looking at the backline, out go Horacio Agulla, Marcelo Bosch, Jeronimo De La Fuente (Injured) and Tomas Cubelli, in come Santiago Cordero, Matias Moroni, Nicolas Sanchez and Martin Landajo. Sanchez will take the flyhalf reigns from Hernandez, who shifts into the midfield.

In the forwards, out go Guido Petti Pagadizabal, Pablo Matera and Leonardo Senatore, in come Benjamin Macome, Tomas Lezana and Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe.

Argentina: 15-Joaquin Tuculet, 14-Santiago Cordero, 13-Matias Moroni, 12-Juan Martin Hernandez, 11-Juan Imhoff, 10-Nicolas Sanchez, 9-Martin Landajo; 8-Juan Manuel Leguizamon, 7-Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe, 6-Tomas Lezana, 5-Tomas Lavanini, 4-Benjamin Macome, 3-Nahuel Tetaz Chaparro, 2-Agustin Creevy (captain), 1-Marcos Ayerza

Substitutes: 16-Julian Montoya, 17-Lucas Noguera, 18-Juan Pablo Orlandi, 19-Matias Alemanno, 20-Pablo Matera, 21-Tomas Cubelli, 22-Juan Pablo Socino, 23-Lucas Gonzalez Amorosino

Over in New Zealand we have a rematch of the match of the weekend last weekend, with New Zealand hosting Australia in Auckland. We can again expect fireworks so be sure to get up early on Saturday morning and watch what should be a World Cup Final, but sadly will not happen thanks to the powers that be at the IRB.

The All Blacks have made three changes to the team that lost the Rugby Championship ‘final’ last weekend, including Ma’a Nonu, Victor Vito and Sam Whitelock. They replace Sonny Bill Williams, Jerome Kaino and Luke Romano.

On the bench there are further changes, Codie Taylor, Ben Franks and Beauden Barrett are replaced by Keven Mealamu, Wyatt Crockett and Colin Slade.

New Zealand: 15 Ben Smith, 14 Nehe Milner-Skudder, 13 Conrad Smith, 12 Ma’a Nonu, 11 Julian Savea, 10 Dan Carter, 9 Aaron Smith, 8 Kieran Read, 7 Richie McCaw (captain), 6 Victor Vito, 5 Sam Whitelock, 4 Brodie Retallick, 3 Owen Franks, 2 Dane Coles, 1 Tony Woodcock.

Substitutes: 16 Keven Mealamu, 17 Wyatt Crockett, 18 Nepo Laulala, 19 Jerome Kaino, 20 Sam Cane, 21 TJ Perenara, 22 Colin Slade, 23 Malakai Fekitoa

Their opposition has made six changes to the team that won the Rugby Championship last week. The entire 9/10/12 axis is new with Nic White, Quade Cooper and Matt Toomua starting in place of Nick Phipps, Bernard Foley and Matt Giteau. The other change to the backline sees Henry Speight starting ahead of Drew Mitchell.

Amongst the forwards, Will Skelton starts ahead of Dean Mumm while David Pocock sits on the bench allowing Wycliff Palu a start at the back of the scrum.

Australia: 15-Israel Folau, 14-Adam Ashley-Cooper, 13-Tevita Kuridrani, 12-Matt Toomua, 11-Henry Speight, 10-Quade Cooper, 9-Nic White, 8-Wycliff Palu, 7-Michael Hooper, 6-Scott Fardy, 5-James Horwill 4-Will Skelton, 3-Sekope Kepu, 2-Stephen Moore (captain), 1-Scott Sio

Substitutes: 16-Tatafu Polota-Nau, 17-James Slipper, 18-Greg Holmes, 19-Dean Mumm, 20-Kane Douglas, 21-David Pocock, 22-Matt Giteau, 23-Kurtley Beale

  • This looks roughly like the no. 1 All Blacks’ side. Good team…

  • So this is what rotating your players looks like so that everybody gets a shot to show what they can do. Not select the same failing team week in and week out and just make injury enforced changes

  • If the All Blacks decide Ben Smith is their 1st choice Full Back… Which I think they will… Then I’m sure Hansen will take Slade and Barrett to the WC instead of Dagg… I’ve heard them discuss it on Breakdown the other day and I’m sure I heard Hansen actually say it… That after their first choice in each position they look for players that can cover multiple options. IMO Dagg is limited in that department compared to Slade and Barrett

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 147) : They lull you into expecting one attack platform and as soon as you shuffle ranks they adjust and they hit you with the real plan. Too bad our style is so rigid. There should be enough room for one off crashball high ball and expansive play in 40 minutes and a good team knows how to alternate anticipate and fool their opposition into expecting one form of attack and then varying it. I hate the all blacks but they are definitely a professional outfit. Makes our games seem like luck and brute force in comparison.

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 178) : Which I think is Meyer’s gripe with kicking too. Sure you can kick but know when and which kicks to use. We get a small results with a grubber and suddenly try it every move after that same with box kicks. Predictable. That doesn’t cut it against clever opponents, only the ones you outweigh in experience or raw talent or sheer physicality. But a clever opponent not so much.

  • Ironically, in that first half the Aussies did also show what makes the All Blacks vulnerable. Pit them under pressure and keep it tight and even the All Blacks look shaky!

  • I predict that there will be shaky moments for the All Blacks at the World Cup! It just depends whether any team can keep that pressure up on them for 80 minutes…

  • @pastorshark (Comment 232) : Strangely the Aussies did not play that badly for most of the game. Towards the end the pressure got to them. All Blacks just made the most of each little mistake.

  • @Bokhoring (Comment 237) : Well, the break by Milner-Skudder and the yellow card that followed basically meant 4 tries in 8 minutes. That makes the All Blacks so dangerous! But for the rest, the Aussies did expose those areas in the All Blacks armour that everyone else will have to aim to exploit if they want to dethrone the deserved world champs!
