Canada vs New Zealand Live :: A win will all but assure Canada a spot in the knockout stage, while New Zealand is going to need at least a point to feel good about its chances of advancing.
Canada: The ladies looked strong in their opening game with 74 percent possession and 16 chances, but only putting one away had the result up in the air for most of the match. The movement was quality, they adapted to what Cameroon did defensively, and the creativity was there. The goals will come.
New Zealand: Heartbreak in the first game, they know have the pressure on them here. Canada is physical and will cause them plenty of problems, so they will need to use their speed down the wings to try and get behind the backline. A win over England before the Cup raise expectations, but zero goals in the last 220 minutes is a cause for concern
The All Blacks are back in Rugby World Cup action on Wednesday in a lopsided looking clash with Canada.
New Zealand are hoping to win their third RWC in a row.
The All Blacks opened in Japan with a solid 23-13 victory over one of their chief rivals, South Africa.
Canada, who have never beaten the All Blacks in five attempts, were battered 48-7 by Italy in their first game.
Can Canada cause an upset? That would be one of the greatest sporting upsets of all time.
More likely, however, is that New Zealand will score heavily in a one-sided victory.

The All Blacks are back in action on Wednesday night (11.15pm NZT), when they play Canada in their second Pool B match at the World Cup in Japan.
Come kickoff in Oita, Steve Hansen’ mob will have had 10 full days to recover from their brutal 23-13 win against South Africa during the opening weekend of the tournament.
Given the All Blacks have a short turnaround between the match against Canada and their match against Namibia in Tokyo Sunday week, don’t expect Hansen to wheel out his first-choice XV.
Canada were dreadful against Italy in their opener on Thursday,
After fending off the Springboks 23-13 in their Rugby World Cup Pool B opener, the All Blacks have silenced many of their pre-tournament critics for the moment. Canada will be hoping to bring New Zealand’s doubters back when they face the world champions at Oita Stadium on Wednesday.
Scott Barrett, Kieran Read, Richie Mo’unga and Beauden Barrett are the only All Blacks to keep their positions from the win over South Africa. Coach Steve Hansen has emphasised the importance of spreading minutes out across the squad as New Zealand prepare for two games in four days.
“Whilst there’s a huge amount of energy and excitement amongst the whole team about what lies ahead, this week there has been a real focus on ourselves and our own standards,” Hansen added, as quoted by RNZ.
“We’ve been working hard. We know we have to keep growing our game. We’ve always been demanding of ourselves when it comes to continued improvement, and that will never change. By doing so, it allows us to have the right attitude, intent and execution.”

Canada were lacklustre in their 48-7 defeat to Italy. While it is unlikely that they will fare too much better against New Zealand in terms of the result, they will at the very least be looking for a significantly improved performance.
Their coach, Kingsley Jones, has made six changes to his own XV. He has made no secret of Canada’s desire to raise their game for this clash.
“We have a tremendous amount of respect for New Zealand,” said Jones, according to Reuters. “We can’t wait to fire against them and see how we come out in comparison to some of the best players in the world.”
“We’ve got some tries in us so we’re not afraid to have a go but of course we’ve got to play in the right areas.”
New Zealand vs Canada: Rugby World Cup kick-off time and prediction
Kick off time: Lunch time delights with kick off at 12:15 on 2 October 2019. It will be live on SuperSport 1.
For the RWC, we’ll be using a prediction algorithm from a New Zealand anorak.
Prediction: New Zealand by over 60.
But the human prediction is this: We haven’t seen too many one-sided games at the 2019 Rugby World Cup, but all indications are that this will be a walk in the park for New Zealand. Their fringe players will be hungry to impress and should lead the All Blacks to a 60-point victory.
New Zealand made a strong start in their bid to win a third consecutive Rugby World Cup as they defeated South Africa in their opening game and that result should see them come out on top of Pool B.
The All Blacks have opted to rotate their side for this game as they look to keep their players fresh ahead of bigger challenges to come and among those changes sees siblings Scott, Beauden and Jordie Barrett all start, becoming just the second trio of brothers to start in a RWC match.
Rieko Ioane is handed a chance on the wing and Sonny Bill Williams is another big name inclusion in the side with both eager to press their claims for a spot in the team come the knockout stages.
Canada were on the end of a heavy loss to Italy but it could have been a different game had they not wasted so many chances with the Canucks blowing numerous chances to cross the whitewash.
Andrew Coe scored the only try of the game for the Canucks in their opening game and will hope to force his way into the starting XV after his impressive cameo from the bench saved his side from being kept scoreless.
The Canadians suffered some injury woe during the loss to Italy and two players have been forced to leave the squad with Nick Blevins fracturing his jaw and Ben LeSage needing surgery on a hand. Guiseppe du Toit and Theo Sauder were called-up to replace them.
All Blacks coach Steve Hansen switched up the starting XV — 11 changes in total — that beat South Africa by 23-13 in the opener in Yokohama, with the return of Rieko Ioane a notable inclusion.
Ioane, who has fallen out of favour with the All Blacks selectors after being one of the standouts in 2017 and 2018, gets his first taste of World Cup rugby — replacing George Bridge, while Jordie Barrett comes in for Sevu Reece on the other wing.
Jack Goodhue also returns from injury to the starting XV, teaming up alongside Sonny Bill Williams in midfield. The All Blacks retain their dual playmaker roles with Beauden Barrett starting at fullback and Richie Mo’unga at first-five.
“Our aim is to win the next two pool matches against Canada and Namibia, as well as continuing to grow our game and manage the workload across the group. With two games four days apart, it’s obvious that we need to use our whole squad,” said Hansen.
“Whilst there’s a huge amount of energy and excitement amongst the whole team about what lies ahead, this week there has been a real focus on ourselves and our own standards.
“We’ve been working hard. We know we have to keep growing our game. We’ve always been demanding of ourselves when it comes to continued improvement, and that will never change. By doing so, it allows us to have the right attitude, intent and execution.
