All Blacks Next Game: Latest Odds & Analysis on England vs New Zealand

All Blacks Next Game: Latest Odds & Analysis on England vs New Zealand

Are things looking up for the All Blacks? Betting sites seem to think so, as they head to Twickenham for their final test of the year. 

Less than 12 months out from the Rugby World Cup, this game against England will be an important marker for where the team is at after a very contentious year that’s seen historic losses followed up by statement victories.

One thing is for sure though: this will be the largest crowd the All Blacks will play in front of this year.

Twickenham seats 82,000 and will be filled to the brim, creating one of the most imposing atmospheres in the world. 

England have had a scratchy start to their season, so it’s going to be an interesting match.

What Happened Last Weekend

The All Blacks talked up Scotland all week and then absolutely laid them out in the first 12 minutes of their test at Murrayfield. 

They raced to a 14-point lead in arguably their best rugby of the whole season, then conceded a penalty try and yellow card. 

Anton Lienart-Brown’s foolish act impeding Stuart Hogg scoring handed over all the momentum to the home side, who then led at the break and should have been up by a lot more.

The second half saw the Scots again dominate for large parts, before the All Blacks finally found their rhythm in the last 10 minutes to pull away and keep their unbeaten record against Scotland intact

Was it a perfect game? No, not at all, but the fact that the All Blacks were able to realise what they were doing wrong and correct it on the go was a really encouraging sign.

Once again, the All Blacks scored the first tries, so that’s something to keep in mind this weekend. 

They had a habit of conceding early in the games they eventually lost, something they’ve well and truly broken on this tour.

England, on the other hand, had a comfortable win over Japan at Twickenham. 

It’s hard to read much from that game and the loss the weekend before to Argentina, given that it’s so early in the season for them and the team from last weekend will likely be very different.

England vs All Blacks: What Could Happen This Weekend?

Ian Foster

Out of all the tests played this year, none have had as many question marks hanging over it than this one. 

Ever since the schedule was released and a ball was kicked, the Twickenham fixture was marked down as one that the All Black season would ultimately be judged on, so the pressure around this contest would have been the same no matter how many games they won or lost.

The odds between the two sides are close enough with the best rugby betting sites, as New Zealand are trading at 4/6, while England are available at a bigger price of 11/8.

Simply, this game will be decided up front. The All Blacks will presumably have Brodie Retallick back after his suspension for a reckless charge into a ruck against Japan, which will be a big benefit to the visitors. 

The front row will be bolstered by the fact that Codie Taylor has been in good form - which means that Samisoni Taukei’aho can either start or be on the bench, without any real worry.

The backs have clicked pretty well, although the over-reliance on cross kicks hasn’t paid off due to inaccuracy. So it’s likely something will be done about that, given that the English back three are very good at diffusing high balls.

The loose forward trio has ironically found a real balance over the last couple of weekends, mainly because Dalton Papali’i has been assured of the openside position in Sam Cane’s absence. 

This will lead to a really interesting situation next year if Papali’i continues his good form in Super Rugby, because of course Cane is the incumbent captain.

Another interesting situation is the late change of referee for this game. Nic Berry was supposed to be in control but pulled out during the week, Frenchman Mathieu Reynal will now be the whistleblower. 

If he sounds familiar it’s the same Mathieu Raynal who controversially reversed a call in the dying stages of the Bledisloe Cup test in Melbourne.

That resulted in the All Blacks winning, so it’s fair to say that a few eyebrows have been raised at the appointment.

Key Facts

This is the 43rd test match between the All Blacks and England. The All Blacks have won 33, England eight and one draw. The last time they met was in the 2019 Rugby World Cup semi-final, when England famously triumphed 19-7.

Betting apps have handed New Zealand a -3 handicap at odds of 10/11.

Twickenham has hosted the overwhelming number of matches between these two sides. There have been 23 matches at the famous home of English rugby, with the last a 16-15 win to the All Blacks in 2018.

The sellout crowd at Twickenham will mean the All Blacks have drawn crowds that have totaled 636,000 people this year.
