Two time world champions New Zealand and Australia will lock horns this Saturday at Twickenham, London for the coveted Webb Ellis Cup, the trophy that will be awarded to the winner of the Rugby World Cup.
Here is a look at the Journey of the All Blacks and the Wallabies at this world cup.
Reigning world champions and the number one ranked team in the world, the All Blacks competed in Group 3 and were under-defeated in all 4 games and made it to the Semi Finals where they faced against the mighty Springboks, South Africa.
The All Blacks opened their Rugby World Cup campaign against Argentina, a game that many thought would be an open and shut case.
However, the Puma’s put a tough game for the All Blacks, despite losing 26 – 16.
New Zealand next met Namibia , and crushed their opponents 58 – 14.
The All Blacks over-powered Georgia 43 – 10 at the Millennium Stadium and then went on to destroy Tonga, 47 -9.
The game against Tonga became one of the most spectacular matches to watch as it also saw the battle of Warrior Dances, the All Black Haka and Tonga’s Sipi Tau.
World number two , Australia locked horns against Fiji, Uruguay, England and Wales respectively at the 2015 Rugby World Cup and went on to be dubbed as the most competitive team.
Australia won against Fiji 28 – 13 and made an easy win against Uruguay 65 – 3 , which comprised of 11 tries.
Eleven tries is incidentally the highest number of tries recorded at a single game at the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
Australia defeated the great English 33 – 13 and maintained their undefeated streak with a 15 – 6 win over Wales.
