The two matches this weekend are as follows

New Zealand v South Africa, Wellington 0.835am BST

New Zealand were made to work incredibly hard for their 46-24 bonus point victory over a spirited Argentina team in Nelson last Saturday.

The All Blacks took an 18-7 lead into half-time, with Nehe Milner-Skudder and TJ Perenara dotting down after Ramiro Moyano scored the first try of the game. However, the visitors were first on the board in the second half, making it 18-14 with 30 minutes to play. The All Blacks scored two more tries, through Kieran Read and Perenara, to lead 32-17, before Emiliano Boffelli ran a good support line off Nicolas Sanchez to reduce the All Blacks’ lead to eight points with ten minutes remaining. The All Blacks, as they so often do, found another gear as Shannon Frizell and Jack Goodhue went over to make the margin of victory far more comfortable than the game had been.

The All Blacks could be missing Retallick and Laumape through injury for this match

The Springboks lost 23-18 in Brisbane on Saturday.

Sloppy defending from both sides saw two tries apiece in the first half, with South Africa going into the break 18-17 ahead after Bongi Mbonambi and Makazole Mapimpi crossed the whitewash and Australia responded through Michael Hooper and Matt Toomua.

The Boks were unable to add to their tally in the second half, Toomua slotting two penalties to take his side five points ahead. Australia dominated the second half as the South Africans could not put sustained pressure on the hosts.18 South Africa possession turnovers will be heavily punished if repeated in Wellington as the All Blacks thrive off such ball.
New Zealand are -22 points on the handicap at 10/11 and whilst of course this is a chunky line we would have to consider that they are more likely to cover than not

Australia v Argentina, Gold Coast 11am BST

Argentina were brave against New Zealand in Nelson and scored three tries in their 46-24 loss. They were first on the board in the second half, making it 18-14 with 30 minutes to play. The All Blacks scored two more tries, through Kieran Read and Perenara, to lead 32-17, before Emiliano Boffelli ran a good support line off Nicolas Sanchez to reduce the All Blacks’ lead to eight points with ten minutes remaining.

The Wallabies resisted a late surge from the Springboks to win 23-18 in Brisbane on Saturday.
Sloppy defending from both sides saw two tries apiece in the first half, with South Africa going into the break 18-17 ahead after Bongi Mbonambi and Makazole Mapimpi crossed the whitewash and Australia responded through Michael Hooper and Matt Toomua.

This Australian win was achieved despite the absence of star players Folau and Pocock and the withdrawal of Coleman on the morning of the match.

They should have too much for the Argentinians and the -10 point handicap at 10/11 isn’t excessive. I will be backing them to cover
