The All Blacks will open their 2019 Rugby World Cup campaign with a plum match against the Springboks and could face a semifinal with Eddie Jones’ England as they strive to become the first team to win three successive titles.

Kieran Read's All Blacks will play their traditional rivals, the Springboks, in the opening pool game at the 2019 Rugby World Cup tournament in Japan.
Steve Hansen’s team – ranked number one in the world in 2017 – is in Pool B with South African (ranked 5), Italy (14), the Africa 1 qualifier and the repechage winner.
