Rugby World Cup 2023 odds: All Blacks and Springboks collide in final

Holders South Africa and New Zealand will meet in the Rugby World Cup final at the Stade de France on Saturday.

The Springboks edged England while the All Blacks cruised past Argentina in their respective semi-finals.

Ahead of the showpiece, we’re taking a final look at the Rugby World Cup 2023 odds.


New Zealand booked an unprecedented fifth World Cup final appearance after blowing away Argentina 44-6 at the Stade de France.

A week after successfully emerging from a thunderous quarter-final against Ireland, this resembled more of a training ground exercise for the All Blacks against opponents who were a shadow of the side that edged out Wales.

Instead, this was the Argentina that laboured through Pool D in a poor advert for the weaker half of the draw and the World Cup in general as a muted atmosphere watched New Zealand plunder seven tries.

Wing Will Jordan claimed a hat-trick of tries, making him the deadliest finisher at France 2023 on eight touchdowns.

It also placed him in the company of all time-greats Jonah Lomu, Bryan Habana and Julian Savea, who jointly hold the record for highest number of tries scored at a single World Cup.

Jordan, 25, said: “The World Cup win is what we all came over here to do. I will be perfectly happy to take a zero on the scoresheet if it means we get the job done.

“It’s a team game and the group is really focused at the moment around what we want to do. Hopefully I can play my part in that.

“It is pretty humbling to be included alongside those guys. They were all huge legends of the game and, particularly in the position I play, really trail-blazed the way to play the game as a winger. So that’s pretty cool.”


Handre Pollard kicked a 78th-minute penalty as South Africa overcame England 16-15 to move one game away from retaining their crown.

England led by nine points in the final quarter but their wet-weather masterclass began to fade as the ‘Bomb Squad’ made their presence felt for the Springboks, especially in the scrum.

It was on the back of their set-piece ascendancy and the generalship of replacement fly-half Pollard that the tables turned in a sodden Paris.

RG Snyman barged over for the only try of the match in the 70th minute and Pollard nailed a tricky conversion, setting up a heart-stopping finish to a Test that was enthralling throughout.

The world champions were still two points behind but up stepped man-of-the-match Pollard to land the killer blow with two minutes left, nailing a penalty from just inside England’s half.

Springboks head coach Jacques Nienaber said: “I pay a lot of credit to England. They were outstanding on the night.

“They had a very good tactical plan and they put us under pressure. We will have to improve because it took us some time to get to grips with it.

“But the strength of this team is that even if we’re not playing well we find a way to get the result. It took 80 minutes to get a foothold in the game. The team refused to give up and fought until the end.”
