3N Game 6 – Australia (25) vs (20) New Zealand F/T

What better way to start a Saturday than with a Tri Nations deciding match between top opposition. And what a cracker of a game this should be with both teams eager to add another Tri Nations victory to their names.

The All Blacks, after losing to South Africa in South Africa last weekend, have come out with an almost completely changed team and will be at full strength to take on Australia in their own back yard. Richie McCaw is back to lead his team, and the magician that is Dan Carter is back in the pivot position to make Quade Cooper’s life hell again.

Quade had a torrid time against Carter the last time these two met in an international, somehow fading into the background as Carter player a truly magnificent game. This time Cooper and his team mates are on home soil and in the last match before the World Cup, will be eyeing a confidence breaking/boosting (depending which way you see it) victory here.

This game is a hard game to call, but I will have to say that my heart says that the Wallabies will surprise and take the Tri Nations title. The game kicks off at 12h00.

Australia: 15 Kurtley Beale, 14 Adam Ashley-Cooper, 13 Anthony Fainga’a, 12 Pat McCabe, 11 Digby Ioane, 10 Quade Cooper, 9 Will Genia, 8 Radike Samo, 7 David Pocock, 6 Rocky Elsom, 5 James Horwill, 4 Dan Vickerman, 3 Ben Alexander, 2 Stephen Moore, 1 Sekope Kepu.

Replacements: 16 Saia Fainga’a, 17 Salesi Ma’afu, 18 Rob Simmons, 19 Ben McCalman, 20 Scott Higginbotham, 21 Luke Burgess, 22 Rob Horne.

New Zealand: 15 Mils Muliaina, 14 Cory Jane, 13 Conrad Smith, 12 Ma’a Nonu, 11 Zac Guildford, 10 Daniel Carter, 9 Piri Weepu, 8 Kieran Read, 7 Richie McCaw (captain), 6 Adam Thomson, 5 Samuel Whitelock, 4 Brad Thorn, 3 Owen Franks, 2 Keven Mealamu, 1 Tony Woodcock.

Replacements: 16 Andrew Hore, 17 John Afoa, 18 Ali Williams, 19 Victor Vito, 20 Andy Ellis, 21 Colin Slade, 22 Isaia Toeava
