The Wallabies are all set to take on the battle against the all blacks. The much awaited battle of Oceania is scheduled to happen on Oct. 31 as New Zealand will meet neighbor, Australia, in their first ever World Rugby Final clash, notes the Bleacher Reports.
New Zealand will start as the favorites to clinch the World Championship title yet again. However, Australia wont lag behind to inflict brute force in order to sway the momentum in their favor this time. Their defense has been impenetrable which was evident in their battle against Argentina.
The Wallabies will go into this clash with nothing to lose. They have already proved it in the tournament after knocking out England and holding their nerves against the Argentinians. After getting on the brink of crashing out of the tournament, the Wallabies pulled themselves back to make it into the finals of World Rugby.
The Sydney Morning Herald notes that it is more of a mental defeat against New Zealand. The raging favorites of the tournament is any team’s worst nightmare especially in a World Cup Final. On one hand, Australia will take a lot of confidence coming into this match having defeated Argentina in style. On the other hand, the All Blacks should keep in mind that this is Twickenham and not Eden Park.
Good news for Australia is that David Pocock is in sublime form and is expected to repeat himself in the final clash. Followers of rugby have been waiting for this clash since the beginning of the tournament it is expected to provide all the thrills in the World when both teams come under the lights at Twickenham.
