New Zealand Tri Nations 2012 Rugby Union

A nation obsessed by rugby, New Zealand's passion for this great sport is mirrored by its players performances on the pitch, as they are currently ranked number one in the world by the International Rugby Board.

The All Blacks have dominated the Tri Nations Results in recent years, winning four championships before it was South Africa who picked up the title in 2009, they will go in as favourites this year in the Tri Nations Odds and on form it is hard to argue with that assessment. In recent weeks they have demolished both Ireland and Wales and look to be ready for a big tournament, Dan Carter looks at his brilliant best while Joe Rockocoko looks very dangerous on the wing once again.

Many supporters would argue that New Zealand should be able to win the 2010 Tri Nations with some ease but as South Africa showed last year they will not have it all their own way. The manner of defeat in the 2007 Rugby Union World Cup Quarter Final at the hands of France also showed chinks in the famous All Black armour but it has to be said that over the past 18 months they have proved to be the best in the world.

The All Blacks are aiming to win the World Cup later in the year on home soil so the 2011 Tri Nations will be crucial as they look to hit form at just the right time.
