The third place play off match is the most pointless game in World Rugby.
Not for the all blacks with something to prove apparently!
Dont know if anyone would have seen it over that side of the world but 3 rugby league tests that finished just prior to world cup final kick off.
Fiji defeated Samoa 44-18, New Zealand defeated England 12-8 and what is arguably the biggest upset in international Rugby League history Tonga defeated Australia 16-12.
First time the Aussies have lost to a team other than New Zealand or England in 41 years. The Aussies werent at their best but Tonga were just brilliant. Fantastic for Rugby League to have another country that can match it with the best. Tonga have now defeated Australia New Zealand and England in the last 12 months all as a result of player choosing to play for Tonga over Aus or NZ. Over half the team are eligible to play for other countries but have declared their allegiance to Tonga.
