The All Blacks come up against Italy on Sunday morning (NZDT) as they continue their end of year European tour.
The venue is in Rome at Olympic Stadium and the forecast is looking good at this stage for fast running rugby.
Mostly clear skies are expected at kick off with light easterly breezes.Temperatures during the day should be in the high teens but by evening it’ll be down to about fourteen degrees.
These conditions should be ideal for both sides and the All Blacks are putting their rotational policy back in place against the Italians.
Surpringly last weekend against Scotland temperatures were on the mild side and about seven degrees above normal and the high scoring game was aided by the pleasant conditions.
Next weekend the AB’s match is against Wales in Cardiff under cover so no matter what the weather brings the men in black will continue to be on fire!
