Both teams have won two Rugby World Cups after '95, but never against the other, and to understand the meaning of New Zealand vs. South Africa this weekend at Stade de France in Paris, think Brazil vs. Argentina in a soccer World Cup final. Then add lots more.

Personally, I can't wait for this Final. I can't split them - the two best teams in the world. But to suggest it is bigger worldwide that an Argentina v Brazil football WC final would be, may be a bit of a stretch!

Yeah, this is huge. There of course have been controversies in the past between these two teams, but there is so much respect there as well. Whichever team wins is thoroughly deserving. I’ll be up for it… I expect my wife will get up for this one too… she does enjoy the RWC more than she tries to let on.

I often think some of the other countries were just there as fillers.

Fighto!

The rivalry has a longer history than the Argentina v Brazil football WC rivalry.
