NEW ZEALAND v TONGA BETTING PREVIEW New Zealand's place in the final eight is already assured, but the All Blacks still need to clinch a point against to make Pool C's top place theirs. The Kiwi have won all three of their matches but they haven’t hit anything like to gear to date. They emerged victorious with a 26-16 victory over Argentina in their opening fixture and hammered Namibia 58-14 and Georgia 43-10. Anyway, all their displays were riddled with handling errors.

The All Blacks will be without injured captain Richie McCaw after picking up a hip injury in the win over Georgia and he will not be risked. Sam Cane takes his place in the XV, while No. 8 Kieran Read takes the captain's armband. Milner-Skudder also gets a start and Sonny Bill is on the bench.

Tonga lost a niggling encounter with Georgia in their opening fixture before a strenuous win over Georgia and then another heavy 45-16 loss at the hands of Argentina. They are currently third in the Pool C standings and they would need a miracle to qualify for the quarter-finals. They must beat the New Zealand and hope Argentina loses to Namibia in their final game

Tonga have made just one change from the team that failed against Argentina with inside centre Latiume Fosita replacing Sione Piukala while six Tongans will make their fourth start at the RWC 2015.
