All Southern- Hemisphere Semi-Finals

As Scotland come to terms with their Rugby World Cup Quarter-Final exit, we look forward to the all Southern-Hemisphere Semi-Finals.

After an impressive demolition of France in the quarters, New Zealand will want to ascertain their dominance in this competition against an immensely physical South African side. The kiwi coach has given his team extra motivation by claiming South Africa want to “Rip off our heads!”

The other semi-final between Australia and Argentina is almost guaranteed to have running rugby from start-to-finish. Both teams like to play with width and imagination so should an absolute cracker of a match.

The only question that remains is…

Who do you think will be in the final?
