Overview

<b>Strengths:</b> Exciting, explosive backline led by Carlos Spencer that is capable of running in tries from all areas of the field, coupled with a mobile, technically proficient pack. <br/> <b>Weaknesses:</b> Spencer's goalkicking, inconsistent lineout, can be dominated by larger packs from England and France. <br/> <b>Prediction:</b> Unlikely to be troubled before the semi-finals but face tough opposition from England and France, one of whom should be waiting for them in the final. <br/> <br/> <b>World Ranking:</b> 2 <br/> <br/> <b>Nickname:</b> All Blacks <br/> <br/> <b>Captain:</b> Reuben Thorne
