The Rugby World Cup is just around the corner, which means the best teams in the game are ready to battle it out for glory.
The 2023 edition takes place in France and a nation will leave with the Webb Ellis Cup.
South Africa are the current champions and are big favorites to win again.
But New Zealand, the hosts and Ireland are likely to have their say on this.
The final is one of the best events in sport and this year’s will certainly be no different.
When is the Rugby World Cup final?
The 2023 Rugby World Cup kicks off this week, with France taking on New Zealand in a blockbuster opener.
The tournament then lasts seven weeks before the final on Saturday 28 October.
It should be held at the Stade de France in Paris.
