London - Bookmakers have slashed the odds on New Zealand defending their Rugby World Cup title after their thrashing of France in their quarter-final in Cardiff on Saturday.

The All Blacks put France to the sword, winning 62-13 at the Millennium Stadium.

Local bookmakers Sportingbet have cut the odds on Steven Hansen's men lifting the Webb Ellis Cup to 8/13.

Australia are next best at 5/2, while the Springboks, narrow 23-19 victors over Wales at Twickenham on Saturday, are 6/1 to win a third World Cup title.

Argentina are seen as 12/1 outsiders for a first ever Webb Ellis triumph.

The All Blacks and Springboks clash in a mouth-watering semi-final at Twickenham on Saturday at 17:00 SA time, while the Wallabies and Pumas clash at the same venue a day later (also 17:00 SA time)
