Tongue in cheek, judging by games so far and yesterday's ABs Uruguay game, yellow cards are a joke and most are completely unwarranted , maybe we just get rid of on field referees and just use wanna be refs 'in the box'.
It is becoming ridiculous, just watch the stop start NFL. JUST SAYING

Who Will Win?

New Zealand will enter this game against Uruguay as the overwhelming favourites. Since losing against France in the opening match of the Rugby World Cup, New Zealand have comprehensively defeated both Namibia (71-3) and Italy (96-17).

Although Uruguay have performed admirably in the tournament so far, defeating the All Blacks would be considered a major upset and would perhaps be one of the greatest shocks in Rugby World Cup history.

Think you know how the upcoming New Zealand vs Uruguay game will pan out? Vote in the poll below.

Head-to-Head

In the history of international rugby, New Zealand and Uruguay have only faced each other once. Way back in 1976, an All Blacks XV took on Uruguay and won the match 64-3.

Keep an eye on our head-to-head records section below. As more New Zealand vs Uruguay games take place, you’ll be able to see details about which team has won the most matches, the average number of points scored, the number of times the first try-scorer has won the game and how many times the home team has won.

Team Form

Below you’ll find a rundown of New Zealand and Uruguay’s most recent results. Despite recent defeats to South Africa and France, the All Blacks have turned their form around and have dished out some painful lessons to Namibia and Italy.

While they haven’t set the tournament alight, Uruguay have enjoyed a successful Rugby World Cup so far and have put in strong showings against both Italy and France.

Beneath our team form guide, you’ll also find lots of additional information about how the two teams have performed in their last five games, including the number of tries they’ve scored and their overall points difference.

New Zealand vs Uruguay 2023: Detailed Match Preview

On Thursday 05th October, 2023, New Zealand will face Uruguay at OL Stadium in Lyon.

A bonus-point win for New Zealand will take them into the knockout stages of the competition. However, unless France slip up against Italy, the All Blacks will likely finish second in the pool.

For Uruguay, qualification for the knockout stages seems unlikely. In order to qualify, they must beat New Zealand with a try-scoring bonus point, and by at least 80 points. On top of this, they also need France to beat Italy.

When he takes to the field in the game, Sam Whitelock will earn his 150th cap for the All Blacks.

When was the first New Zealand vs Uruguay game? When was the first New Zealand vs Uruguay game?
