The Rugby Championship 2022: Round 5 Predictions
Don’t get caught out by the early start to this round, with Australia v New Zealand taking place on Thursday.
Here are my Rugby Championship predictions for Round 5.
Australia v New Zealand
New Zealand are firm favourites for this one after appearing to bounce back to form by thrashing Argentina in Round 4. It might be a little closer than some people expect, but I’ll be backing the All Blacks. New Zealand by 7
Argentina v South Africa
These teams have been hard to predict so far, one minute looking like world-beaters, the next like a disorganised rabble. This pick is no easier, but I’m leaning towards home advantage to give the Pumas the edge, and disregarding the Round 4 thrashing by the All Blacks. Argentina by 4
