Xi, who has unleashed a spate of industry and societal reforms this year in the name of "common prosperity", has made clear that the excesses of decades of breakneck growth powered by a relentless rise in property prices and debt must be brought to heel.

The match at Townsville in north Queensland state in Australia features a stark contrast of styles between the All Blacks’ free-flowing, high-paced style which relies on skill and keeping the ball in hand and the Springboks’ less adventurous game which focuses on kicking and assertive forward play.
