Across the ditch, the Kiwis host Tonga in arguably the most anticipated match of the tournament to date following Jason Taumalolo’s last minute defection.
Both sides have qualified for the next phase but there is plenty of stake with the winner handed a likely quarter final berth with Lebanon and avoiding Australia until the final (on paper at least).
New Zealand have looked impressive so far and should have plenty of confidence heading into this after a couple of crushing wins.
Tonga got the better of Pacific neighbours Samoa last week but I wasn’t totally convinced by their performance and think the Kiwis can cover a fairly modest start.
New Zealand at $1.33
Tonga at $3.45
Tip: New Zealand at $1.33
Line tip: New Zealand -8.5 (1.91)
