It will be a different year for the All Blacks in 2020 as they are unlikely to take on the World Champions South Africa, due to restrictions with travel.
Instead, it looks like the men in black will play an extended version of the Bledisloe Cup against Australia. It is not the big match everyone hoped for against the Springboks, but we can all hopefully look forward to that in 2021. This player we are sure will be raring to go at the Springboks next year.
