1 The second rows Kane Douglas and Rob Simmons have been great line-out defenders for Australia and will need to be on top of their game to deny Sam Whitelock and Brodie Retallick the clean ball that is so important for their attack. No one has really managed to get into New Zealand in this area. Retallick is getting back to the form that made him World Player of the Year last season. 2 Dan Carter v Bernard Foley Goal-kicking is an area of advantage for New Zealand; Carter is the best in the business. He has a bit more distance to offer than Foley, who has had some real highs in this World Cup, notably against England, but he has also had a couple of rough patches. He did so against Scotland yet then hit the winner. Called The Iceman for his ability to nail pressure kicks, as he did for Michael Cheika’s Waratahs to clinch the 2015 Super Rugby title. Carter is in prime form, even knocking over a dropped goal against South Africa at a critical time. 3 Sekope Kepu v Joe Moody The scrum has not been known as an area of strength for Australian rugby, but the All Blacks have had to summon loosehead prop Joe Moody into action following the hamstring injury to veteran Tony Woodcock and a groin problem for Wayne Crockett. A great deal will rest on his ability to deal with the pressure of a World Cup final in what will be just his 11th Test appearance.
