For your information the Wallabies of Australia had beaten the All Blacks of New Zealand and knocked them out of the tournament back in 1991 and 2003 in the semi-final stages of those tournaments, but the All Blacks got their revenge as the beat France in Auckland for the 2011 Final. Also an important point is the Wallabies of Australia are the only team that has defeated the All Blacks of New Zealand, and the Australian team is the only team that has never been beaten on soil in the United Kingdom in a Rugby World Cup.

As we look at the games played previously between these 2 Cup finalist a rivalry that has gone on for some 112 years and the All Blacks of New Zealand have won 105 of the 154 matches that were official, and the experts expect New Zealand to win this Final and make it their 155th win. In the ultimate 6 years the All Blacks have been at the top of the rankings for the Rugby World and won their last title in their homeland back in the 2011 season. Actually the All Blacks won the 1st Rugby World Cup that took place back in 1987 and since they have become known as chokers as they have had struggling losses, like losing to Australia in the 2003 semifinals, then lost 2 times to France in the 1999 semifinals and 2007 in the quarterfinals. Then they revenged their name by beating France in 2011 in a tough match to take the Title.

So now in the Saturday final the All Blacks get the opportunity to prove to the Rugby World that the can win on the big World Cup Stage.
