On Day Two of the IRB Americas Rugby Championship the Canadian and American National Teams, along with everyone in attendance at Westhills Stadium, took part in a moment of silence for Chantal Maclean and Cody Kehler.

Maclean and Kehler, two young and talent rugby players from the lower mainland of Vancouver, recently passed away from a tragic car accident on Thanksgiving weekend.

The moment of silence took part before the signing of the national anthems and was an important part of the evening’s proceedings.

Chantal represented BC at the U18 level. She was a member of the BC U18 team that won the Las Vegas Invitational Sevens earlier this year. She also represented BC at the Nationals this year in July. She played with the Howlers U-17 Howlers 7’s team that toured Germany in June and was scheduled to travel with the Dog River Howlers 7’s side to Colombia in December as part of their U-18 tour.

Cody was part of the Canada U17 development team in 2013 and was invited to the Canada West Camp that year at Shawnigan Lake School. He was also a part of the BC Team that won gold in Calgary at National Festival.

He was Male Athlete of the Year in 2013 at Clayton Heights Secondary School.

The Wallabies squandered a 14-0 lead to become the first Rugby Championship team to lose to Argentina since the Pumas entered the competition in 2012, going down 21-17 in Mendoza.

The All Blacks are also coming off a loss after South Africa flyhalf Patrick Lambie kicked a 79th-minute penalty goal to score a 27-25 victory in Johannesburg. The defeat ended New Zealand’s 22-Test unbeaten run.

All the talk is that McKenzie has lost the support of his players, well we’re about to find out. The All Blacks thumped the Wallabies 51-20 in Bledisloe II at Eden Park the last time these two teams met in August. If the hosts are a team divided and they allow the Beale-Patston saga to distract them, the margin will be even greater.

The New Zealand All Blacks have announced their team to face an under-siege Wallabies outfit on Saturday.

The Wallabies have endured a distraction-filled preparation for the final Bledisloe Test match of the year, but New Zealand have assured the media they won’t be taking them lightly at Suncorp Stadium.

Coach Steve Hansen has made a number of changes, forced and otherwise, to the team that lost to South Africa at Ellis Park two weekends ago.

Cory Jane comes onto the wing in the place of the recovering Ben Smith, while Brodie Retallick has recovered from concussion concerns that saw him miss the Springboks clash. His return is a big boost for the side, as he has been one of the most dominant forwards in the Rugby Championship this year.

Liam Messam returns in the blindside flanker position in place of Jerome Kaino, and the front row sees the return of Dane Coles and Wyatt Crockett to the starting team.

Aaron Cruden continues to be ignored for the fly half spot, with Beauden Barrett starting and Colin Slade deputising, as well as covering fullback.

Hansen will be desperate to bounce back from a loss to their arch rivals, the ‘Boks, and said that although the Bledisloe Cup had been retained, they will be playing to win on Saturday.

“Anyone who has played sport will know there’s no such thing as a dead rubber. Your pride doesn’t allow that for a start. You’re playing for your country.

“There’s not a lot of love lost between Australia and New Zealand in any sport… we want to belt them and they want to belt us.”

Hansen says the off-field problems for the Wallabies will only mean the Aussies will show more steel on the field.

“As we know there’s a few things happening there so that will galvanise them to want to go out and play well.”

All Blacks team to play the Wallabies: Israel Dagg, Cory Jane, Conrad Smith, Malakai Fekitoa, Julian Savea, Beauden Barrett, Aaron Smith, Kieran Read, Richie McCaw (c), Liam Messam, Sam Whitelock, Brodie Retallick, Owen Franks, Dane Coles, Wyatt Crockett.

Reserves: Keven Mealamu, Ben Franks, Charlie Faumuina, Patrick Tuipulotu, Sam Cane, TJ Perenara, Colin Slade, Charles Piutau

New Zealand will be aiming to make it five straight wins when they take on South Africa in their final 2014 Rugby Championship fixture at Ellis Park on Saturday.

The All Blacks have already secured the overall title after they followed their draw with Australia on the opening weekend with four straight victories.

Even though the Springboks have no hope of topping the table they will be keen to avenge last year’s defeat to the All Blacks in Johannesburg.

On that occasion the Rugby Championship crown was at stake and New Zealand prevailed 38-27 after a nine-try thriller. In their only clash since, New Zealand won 14-10 earlier in this year’s tournament.

South Africa are sweating on the fitness of No 8 Duane Vermuelen, who has been named in Heyneke Meyer’s starting XV but faces a race against time to recover from a rib cartilage injury. Schalk Burger will take his place if he misses out.

Bryan Habana has been named on the wing despite suffering a blow to the head in the 28-10 victory over Australia last time out.

Players List:

South Africa: 15 Willie le Roux, 14 Cornal Hendricks, 13 Jan Serfontein, 12 Jean de Villiers (c), 11 Bryan Habana, 10 Handrè Pollard, 9 Francois Hougaard; 1 Tendai Mtawarira, 2 Bismarck du Plessis, 3 Jannie du Plessis, 4 Eben Etzebeth, 5 Victor Matfield, 6 Marcell Coetzee, 7 Tebo Mohoje, 8 Duane Vermeulen/Schalk Burger.

Replacements: 16 Adriaan Strauss, 17 Trevor Nyakane, 18 Marcel van der Merwe, 19 Bakkies Botha, 20 Schalk Burger/Warren Whiteley, 21 Cobus Reinach, 22 Pat Lambie, 23 JP Pietersen.

New Zealand: 15 Israel Dagg, 14 Ben Smith, 13 Conrad Smith, 12 Malakai Fekitoa, 11 Julian Savea, 10 Beauden Barrett, 9 Aaron Smith; 1 Joe Moody,  2 Keven Mealamu, 3 Owen Franks, 4 Jeremy Thrush, 5 Sam Whitelock, 6 Jerome Kaino, 7 Richie McCaw (c), 8 Kieran Read.

Replacements: 16 Dane Coles, 17 Ben Franks, 18 Charlie Faumuina, 19 Steven Luatua, 20 Liam Messam, 21 Tawera Kerr-Barlow, 22 Colin Slade, 23 Ryan Crotty.

Argentina host New Zealand on Sunday, September 13 at 11.10am (NZT)

What: Argentina v New Zealand
When: Sunday, September 28 – 11.10am NZT
Where: Estadio Ciudad de La Plata, Argentina
I can view it on: Sky Sports

New Zealand kept up their victory streak, earning the team’s 21st consecutive win in the game against South Africa. But it wasn’t an easy victory for the world champions. At half time, the Springboks were up 7-6 but a joint effort try by captain Richie McCaw at 45 minutes put the home side up. A penalty for each side brought the score to 14-10 to the All Blacks at full time. It was a tight game and both sides persistently fought for possession.

Even a late surge of energy from Argentina was not enough for the team to earn a victory against Australia. The 32-25 defeat could easily have been a larger margin for Australia, but the home side was unable to bring the total try count to four due to a persistent Argentine side.

The All Blacks will be looking to extend their 21-match unbeaten streak and edge closer to their own 23-win world record with a win over Argentina. Argentina will be looking to make an international statement by defeating the world champions. With these two psychological advantages coming against one another, it will be a fascinating game.

Hooker Dane Coles, who was expected to start in this Sunday’s game and then travel home for the birth of his first child, has instead left early. Coles’ wife is expecting the baby shortly, which has meant the hooker is leaving space for Kevin Mealamu to start and Bay of Plenty’s Nathan Harris to travel over for his black jersey debut.

Argentine coach Daniel Hourcade has cut his squad ahead of the match against the All Blacks. Two players – injured flanker Juan Manuel Leqguizamon and hooker Santiago Iglesias Valdez – have been dropped from the team that played Australia and New Zealand earlier in September. It seems the Pumas are doing everything they can to defeat the All Blacks and to earn their first win in 16 games.

National and international media alike threw up their arms in horror at Aaron Cruden missing the flight to Argentina due to a late night in Auckland town. But Cruden’s mistake, which resulted in a reprimand from coach Steve Hansen and cost the player his next two test matches, may just be the perfect opening for Beauden Barrett. The number 10 started in the last match-up in round three against Argentina, filling in for an injured Aaron Cruden. The opening has also allowed Canterbury’s Tom Taylor to travel over to Argentina as backup for the next two games. It was a disappointing mistake for Cruden, but could mean some great rugby from the visiting side, showcasing the depth of New Zealand’s kickers.

Argentina’s morale might be low, but the last 20 minutes of the game against South Australia was proof that if the team gets fired up, they have the potential to steal a win. The All Blacks have a few key players out – Dan Carter still missing from the line-up from injury, Aaron Cruden out due to a missed flight and a bad decision, Dane Coles returning back to New Zealand for his child’s birth. The team will need to work together to continue to the winning streak. We predict an All Blacks win by 17 points.
