All Blacks vs Italy Match preview
The All Blacks are back in action following a well-deserved week off, and the break has undeniably worked wonders for them as they welcome back a fully fit squad. Returning to the lineup are Shannon Frizell, Jordie Barrett, and Sam Cane, with the regular skipper set to make his appearance from the bench, joined by another returning force, Tyrel Lomax.
Meanwhile, Italy is riding a wave of optimism after securing two impressive victories to kick off their campaign. However, the true litmus test of their recent progress under Kieran Crowley awaits them in the upcoming week. The Azzurri have never advanced to the World Cup knockout stage, but a triumph over New Zealand on Thursday night could mark one of the most remarkable upsets in tournament history.
Despite Italy’s evident improvement, it remains a challenging task to envision them securing their first-ever victory over the All Blacks. Italy certainly demonstrates flashes of strong play and has notably enhanced their attacking prowess under Crowley. However, they have yet to consistently maintain the high intensity required to compete with New Zealand. To defeat the All Blacks, even when facing a New Zealand squad that has experienced two losses in its last three matches, teams cannot afford to drop their intensity or physicality for even a moment. The three-time world champions possess the capability to strike from any position on the field.
NEW ZEALAND Beauden Barrett; Will Jordan, Rieko Ioane, Jordie Barrett, Mark Telea; Richie Mo’unga, Aaron Smith; Ofa Tu’ungafasi, Codie Taylor, Nepo Laulala; Brodie Retallick, Scott Barrett; Shannon Frizell, Dalton Papali’i, Ardie Savea (captain)
Replacements: Dane Coles, Tamaiti Williams, Tyrel Lomax, Samuel Whitelock, Sam Cane, Cam Roigard, Damian McKenzie, Anton Lienert-Brown
