Wales vs New Zealand Predictions


Wales have a horrid record against New Zealand and come into this fixture in poor form. It may however be closer than many people think after Wales put up a decent fight against South Africa in their July 2022 tour.

I am backing Wales to get within 12 points of the All Blacks with a  first win in 33 matches on the cards.

  • Wales have lost 5 of their last 6 matches.
  • New Zealand have won their last 3 matches.
  • New Zealand have won their last 32 matches against Wales.

Head to Head


Wales won three of their first four matches ever against New Zealand but their last victory came in 1953. Since then the All Blacks have won 32 consecutive games against the Welsh.

When they met in 2021 New Zealand won 54-16 away from home. It must be remembered that Wales were depleted with injuries at the time.

Wales Form


Wales have not had a good 2022 as pressure continues to grow on Wayne Pivac. Supporters have not been pleased with the performances at any level, and the union seems to be in trouble as well.

During the Six Nations Wales were poor although they put in some plucky performances, particularly at home against France. However they did suffer a 22-21 defeat to Italy to end their campaign.

Since then Wales have played three matches against South Africa. They lost the first Test 32-29 but bounced back to win the second 13-12. It was against a severely weakened Springbok team.

In the final Test, with South Africa back at full strength, Wales lost 30-14. They will hope at home they can break the 32-match losing streak against the All Blacks.

Wales Injuries & Team News


Wales are at full strength this weekend and will fancy their chances at the Principality.

New Zealand Form


New Zealand have become a very difficult team to predict in 2022. They were in atrocious form from their end of tour last year to the Rugby Championship earlier this year.

Despite winning the Rugby Championship, they put in some very average displays. They also lost a home test series 2-1 to Ireland.

The All Blacks are however still a very strong side, as they proved in winning the Rugby Championship. With a very good record against Wales the confidence will be there that they can build on their more recent performances.

Last week New Zealand just got over the line against Japan, winning 38-31 in Tokyo.

New Zealand Injuries & Team News


Brodie Retallick will miss this match against Wales and next week against Scotland after receiving a red card against Japan last weekend.
