Bakersfords, CA (CNN) — The Super Rugby final against Wales in Chicago is not only about the national team, but also about two of the game’s top teams, the All Blacks and Wales.
The two teams are competing in the final of a Super Rugby tournament in which both teams are seeded from the lower seed, the top seeded team from each of the six countries participating.
The winner of the final will advance to the 2019 World Cup.
The game starts at 8 p.m.
CT (3 p.c.
ET) and is televised by ESPN.
The two teams that are seeded lower than Wales in the semifinal are the All Black and the British and Irish Lions.
The Lions are seeded 10th in the world and the All Blues 12th.
This is the second semifinal game between the two teams, which also have played in the semifinals before.
The All Blacks beat Wales, 23-10, in the second round of the tournament in 2015.
In the first semifinal, the hosts won 24-20 against the Lions.
That game was the first in which the All-Black and Lions faced each other.
This time around, both teams have played the Welsh, who were seeded 12th in last year’s World Cup and are the No. 3 seed in the World Rugby rankings.
This means they will face off against the defending champions.
Wales will play England on Saturday in their semifinal.
A few things to watch for: The All Blacks will be the only team that can take down the Lions on Saturday.
The reigning champions won’t be able to match that performance.
Bakersfield’s Josh Jackson will be back at his best on Saturday, as he helped the Bakersdons upset the All Whites in the first round of this year’s competition.
Jackson scored a goal and was credited with the game-winner as the Bakerdons beat the All Blanses 31-13.
This year’s final is also the first Super Rugby championship for Wales, and it will be Jackson’s first trip to Chicago since 2013.
He had a big game in the semi-final win over the All Stars.
He has scored at least five goals in five games this year.
There is a chance for the Lions to clinch a berth to the World Cup for the first time since their last appearance in 2019.
Wales defeated England 29-26 on the road in Cardiff in the championship game.
Another chance for Wales to make history.
Wales won the first meeting between the teams in this tournament.
The teams met in Cardiff last year, where Wales won 34-22.
The last time Wales beat England in the Super 14 was in 2012.
