Rugby This is another awesome extension!!

England and New Zealand will go head to head this Saturday in the first semi-final of the Rugby World Cup.

This is the first meeting between the two at the tournament in 20 years, with the All Blacks seeing out a 30-16 victory in the group stages of the 1999 edition.

Both sides progressed to the last four on the back of comfortable quarter-final wins.

Whereas Steve Hansen’s men demolished Ireland 46-14 in Tokyo, the English, who are appearing in their first World Cup semi-final since 2007, thumped long-term rivals Australia 40-16 in Oita.

The build-up to the fixture has already seen its fair share of controversy, with England coach Eddie Jones claiming his team had been spied on during a training session earlier this week. He also accused the New Zealand media of being ‘fans with keyboards’. Safe to say we can expect fireworks from Saturday’s showdown.
