Australia take on Fiji in an intriguing Pool C fixture

Fiji are coming off a heart-breaking narrow defeat against Wales in their opening game last Sunday, losing 32-26 in a game that could easily have gone the other way.

On the other hand, the Wallabies won their opening match of this year’s Rugby World Cup last week, beating Georgia by 35-15. It was head coach Eddie Jones’ first victory of his second Australia tenure. It was a must-needed victory for Australia after five defeats in a row coming into the Rugby World Cup.

Fiji will look for their first victory against Australia since 1954. After a defeat against Wales, the Pacific Islanders must come up with a victory in this match to keep their hopes alive to reach the quarter-finals for only the second time.
