Rugby World Cup – Day Five Preview

After a frantic weekend with six games across two days, the Rugby World Cup 2019 settles pace slightly through the week. Tuesday sees Russia the first team to take a second run-out.

Russia have the quickest turnaround of all teams after featuring against tournament hosts Japan in the curtain-raiser only on Friday, a game which offered little encouragement.

Samoa, meanwhile, are fresh and rarely to go with their customary powerful pack, while the fleet-footed Tim Nanai-Williams will offer some impressive attacking play from the backline.

Russia v Samoa – Kumugaya Rugby Stadium – Pool A

In Tuesday’s one and only fixture, Russia and Samoa lock horns, with the latter seeking to get their campaign off to a flying start.

Russia are in survival mode and hoping to salvage something to write home about, but their 30-10 reverse to Japan on Friday offered little in the way of promise.

 Samoa, having seen Scotland bruised by Ireland, will be holding onto their ambitions of a quarter-final berth, starting out with a strong display against a fledgling Russian side.

Samoa win by 15 points
