Rugby World Cup – Day Nine Preview

Following on from another Super Saturday at the Rugby World Cup Sunday sees a Pool D double-header with four of the five teams in action.

Wales face off with Australia in what could prove to be a Pool decider, but first up it is Georgia against the tournament upset-makers, Uruguay.

Georgia v Uruguay
Kumugaya Rugby Stadium – Pool D

Nobody expected much of Uruguay, but they enter round two towards the head of Pool D after causing the first big upset of the competition, defeating Fiji, and they now take on Georgia.

Georgia’s first run-out was less than successful after suffering a heavy reverse to Wales on Monday – and they will hold little hopes of recovery after seeing Uruguay dismiss Fiji, who play a similar style of rugby.

Uruguay may have only edged over the line on the scoreboard, but their performance was impressive and they seem to have a squad capable of claiming another victory.

Matches odds with Coral: Georgia 1/8 Draw 40/1 Uruguay 5/1
Ben’s Prediction: 
Uruguay win by nine points

Australia v Wales
Tokyo Stadium – Pool D

Sunday second fixture is the pick of the weekend in what could prove to be the Pool D decider, with Australia taking on Wales in a clash of the top tier nations.

The Wallabies were hard pressed by Fiji in their opening encounter, but showed strength and resilience to bounce back, while Wales allayed their off-field distractions with a resounding win on Monday.

It has been a mixed run-up to the Rugby World Cup for both squads, but the Wallabies, after coming through a much tougher test, appear the sharper and have a much more well-rounded game, giving them the slight edge.

Matches odds with Coral: Australia 5/4 Draw 25/1 Wales 8/11
Ben’s Prediction: 
Australia win by six points
