Back-to-back World Cups is no mean feat and something the almighty All Blacks have yet to achieve. Could their league counterparts sneak in that achievement first?

It'll be no easy task beating the All Blacks-esque Kangaroos on Saturday (NZT 3am Sunday), made even harder by their bruising encounter with England in the breathtaking semi final last weekend. 

It was even hard for Sonny Bill Williams who reflected after the game it was the toughest match of his career.

The emotional toll of sneaking home in the dying moments will be a hard act to follow too, especially for the pivotal Shaun Johnson who not only scored the last-gasp try, but converted it for the win.

The tough encounter could mean the Kiwis have already played their final, but on the flipside, Australia has had less than ideal preparation with easy games, pub fights and muggings; a few onfield injuries too.

So can the Kiwis do it? Tell us who you think is going to bring home the silverware this weekend and why by hitting the big green button below.
