Rugby World Cup: Savea to try goggles in All Blacks vs Canada

From Checkpoint, 5:27 pm on 1 October 2019

All Black Ardie Savea will look even more like a super hero in Wednesday night's Rugby World Cup match against Canada, with the flanker set to wear goggles for the first time.

In a bid to protect his deteriorating eyesight, Savea will sport the World Rugby-approved eyewear in the pool B match in Oita after trialing them at training.

Rugby reporter Joe Porter joins us live from Beppu, where Savea has been putting the goggles to the test.
