2019 Rugby World Cup Bronze Final: New Zealand vs. Wales October 31, 2019 by Marc Jerbs

On Friday, New Zealand will face Wales in the Rugby World Cup bronze final.

Game time is set at 8:00 PM AEST and will be played in Nissan Arena, Japan.

Both teams are suffering from heart-breaking losses in their semifinal matches.

They were almost there for Rugby World Cup final but they could not get over the hump.

This bronze final match is a consolation for both teams but their scar could take time to heal until the next Rugby World Cup.

This will be the last tour of duty for Wales' head coach Warren Gatland as he will end up his 12-year coaching tenure for the team.

But before his exit, he has one last game and one last lineup changes for team Wales.

His final lineup is a mix of veterans and youngster that may finally win over New Zealand on its 12th head-to-head game.

New Zealand is itching to play in the bronze final match.

They want to atone their dismal performance in their semifinal match against England.

New Zealand could do much better from what they have showed in their 19-7 semifinal loss.

This is a statement game for Wales and New Zealand.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed New Zealand as the favorite to beat Wales on Friday night's Rugby World Cup bronze final.
