Lineups for all of this weekends World Cup matches

If last night’s France vs. Uruguay match is anything to go by, this weekend’s set of second-round World Cup matches is going to be electrifying.

The World Cup has been a fascinating spectacle so far, from the electricity of the opening night through to the ‘Tier 2’ nations demonstrating sublime play that has shown just how far the nations have moved forward from four years ago.

This weekend will have spectators glued to their sofas, stadium chairs or simply wandering around, too nervous to sit down as their team faces the biggest challenges on the largest of stages.

New Zealand vs. Namibia

First up we have the mighty All Blacks take on Namibia tonight in a must-win match for both sides after each were on the receiving end of a pretty heavy battering.
