Tournament favourites New Zealand face a tough test in their opening game of the 2019 Rugby World Cup , as they play South Africa in Pool B.
Between them the two sides have won five of the previous eight World Cups, with the All Blacks looking to retain their 2015 title in Japan.
The two nations have a fierce, deep-rooted rivalry, and there is little to choose between them – with one draw and a win each from their last three encounters.
New Zealand coach Steven Hansen has opted to play Beauden Barrett at full-back, while Richie Mo’unga comes into fly-half.
Meanwhile South Africa will be looking to inflict the All Blacks’ first Rugby World Cup defeat in 15 matches.
Fans will hope for plenty of fireworks when these two rugby-heavyweights collide in Yokohama.
