Format of the Championship
The format of the Rugby Championship 2017 is the same as it was in the previous five editions of the game. Each of the team will play each other two times, once in a home match and once in an away match. It sums up to be a total of six matches per side and twelve games in total. The winning team gets four league points, a draw gives two points to each team, and loss with a margin of eight points or more will result in zero league points. There are chances for the teams to get bonus points in two ways. The first way to get a bonus point is through scoring a minimum of three tries more than the opponent in a particular match. Another way to earn the bonus point is to lose the game within seven points. The winner of the championship is the team who scores the maximum number of points at the end of the tournament. In case any two teams finish on equal points, the team with more wins is declared as the winner.
The Prediction of the Fourth Round
The tournament has already reached its halfway point, and three rounds have been completed, and the fourth round is all set to begin. In the fourth round, New Zealand will host South Africa and while Argentina is ready to take on Australia. New Zealand and South Africa both are yet to lose in the tournament, but the winner might have a big claim on the title. New Zealand has not been at their dominating best in the first half of the tournament but has two bonus points from their three victories of the season. New Zealand is expected to go all out on South Africa on coming Saturday to register a definite win. On the other hand, Argentina played Australia in the same stadium and lost the match. It would be their second meeting in the same stadium. The performance of Argentina began on a disappointing note but showed a lot of promise in their previous match against New Zealand. Let us wait until Saturday to find out the next.
