It might be the game no one wants to play, but the All Blacks' third-place play-off won't be shown on free-to-air TV.
TVNZ will not screen the All Blacks’ game against Wales in the Rugby World Cup, leaving Spark Sport with exclusive access.
Instead, Kiwi fans will have to watch Coronation Street in its place.

A Spark spokeswoman confirmed that at this stage the game will only be shown on Spark Sport.
"We are considering our options, but a decision has not yet been made.
"I do expect the team to be looking at it. I wouldn’t consider this to be a final decision," she said.
A TVNZ spokeswoman said they were given rights to air 12 matches, but the bronze game wasn’t one of them.
