World Cup 2023: Day 25 Preview

Yesterday, the All Blacks progressed to yet another Rugby World Cup final as they cruised past Argentina in what proved to be a very comfortable evening in Saint-Denis. Today, in a semi-final that neutrals will hope to be slightly more competitive, England face South Africa in a repeat of the 2019 final.

Rugby World Cup Day 24 results:

🇦🇷 Argentina 6-44 New Zealand 🇳🇿
Result predicted by 96% of Superbru players
🎯 Exact margin predicted by 0.3% of Superbru players

Argentina were always massive underdogs as the data above shows, but the Pumas will have been disappointed not to have made more of a game of this. Nevertheless, take nothing away from the All Blacks who continue to look very strong as they scored 7 tries with Will Jordan bagging a hat-trick.

In addition to the final, don't forget that the final round of our Predictor and Fantasy games will also include the 3rd place playoff so there is still a remaining fixture for Argentina.

Kick-off at 21:00 local time
🏟 Stade de France, Saint-Denis

There's a similarly strong majority backing South Africa in this semi-final as the Springboks are undoubtedly heavy favourites. England are in need of a near perfect performance if they're to stand a chance in Paris, with South Africa showing their quality last weekend in that superb quarter-final against France.

Quite surprisingly, the Springboks have named a completely unchanged squad for this game (it's only the second time this has happened in 64 Tests under Nienaber and Erasmus), while England have brought Freddie Steward, George Martin and Joe Marler into their starting XV.

Whether you're a neutral hoping for a more competitive semi-final, a South African dreaming of a final against the All Blacks or an England fan praying for a big upset, we hope you enjoy the match this evening and good luck with your predictions!

Can England win? YES but its unlikely and will need a perfect performance and need to bring something else to the field. Good luck to both teams.
