We are now just days away from the Rugby World Cup Pool stage coming to an end, with only a few games remaining before the knockouts begin – with many more big games and talking points yet to come.
This weekend will be no different and Ireland vs Scotland on Saturday will be fiercely contested as both sides still have a chance at going through to the quarter-finals. There is a slim chance that both teams can advance, sending South Africa home, and Jacques Nienaber has already played down the prospect of them colluding in order to achieve that result.
England have already qualified as Pool winners but face Samoa as they look to continue with their positive momentum while also trying out some new partnerships ahead of the quarter-finals, with Tom Curry one of the names expected to be restored to the starting lineup after his suspension.
While Wales will face a rotated Georgian side, as Warren Gatland’s side along with Fiji are set to advance at Australia’s expense – though perhaps surprisingly Rugby Australia have stood by Eddie Jones despite a disastrous World Cup campaign.
