Rugby Championship 2023 Overview
The rapid improvement of Argentina and the concurrent unraveling of New Zealand means the southern hemisphere nations have never been this well-matched before. It sets up a captivating 2023 Rugby Championship, the only pity being that the competition will officially comprise just three rounds – but as far as consolation prizes go, the upcoming World Cup is a doozy.
Confusingly, an additional round of fixtures has been scheduled for the weekend immediately after the Rugby Championship ends. However, while the second New Zealand vs Australia clash will count towards the outcome of the Bledisloe Cup, that and the second Argentina vs South Africa clash won’t be considered part of the Rugby Championship. Not officially, at least.
Despite losing to both the Springboks and Pumas last year, Ian Foster’s beleaguered All Blacks just about managed to retain the trophy because the Wallabies were able to take points off the reigning world champions. However, it was a victory that was very hollow, with New Zealand’s shaky performances costing them their sheen and paving the way for a humbling slide down the world rankings.
Despite finishing a distant third and fourth, Australia and Argentina appear to have used the competition as a launchpad for better things. With Eddie Jones at the helm, you wouldn’t rule out a sudden shake-up of the pecking order, and if Michael Cheika can get a handle on the Pumas’ disciplinary issues, they could certainly ruffle a few feathers too.
