The matches scheduled for this Sunday.
Romania, ranked 19th and runner-up in Six Nations B, has already lost to Ireland in the first round (82-8) and to South Africa in the second (76-0). However, they have a chance to achieve their first victory when they face Tonga next Sunday, October 8.
A day before, Ireland and Scotland will be rejoicing in the duel they have yet to finish.
Here is a summary of the Scottish victory:
Is Fiji leaving Australia?
Fiji today took a significant step towards the quarterfinals of the France 2023 Rugby World Cup. They defeated Georgia 17 to 12, after losing the first half 9 to 0, and reached second place in group C, very well positioned to advance to the next round even with one game left to play.
This result complicates the continuation of Australia, which is already in 3rd place, four points behind Fiji. Meaning, the Wallabies are forced to beat Portugal by a bonus point (tomorrow at 12:45) and hope that Fiji will lose without a defensive bonus against the Portuguese on Sunday, October 8.
If the standings are tied, Fiji will be favored as they beat the Wallabies 22 to 15.
Tonight at the Stade de Bordeaux stadium, in the city of Bordeaux, the islanders had a bad start that Georgia took advantage of to effectively test the axes.
Luka Matkava (5m. and 80m.) and Davit Niniashvili (19m. and 31m.) were responsible for converting three of those penalties in the first leg.
However, perhaps overconfident and not sticking to the strategic attitude, Georgia changed and in the second half chose to play with the advantages they had instead of continuing to kick, looking for safe points and time management .
But he collided with a Fijian defense which caused him to lose several possessions and by the time he reacted, Fiji were ahead 10-9 in 65m. Waisea Nayacalevu’s try (51m.) plus Frank Lomani’s conversion and penalty. Vinaya Habosi then upped the numbers with a try on 68m, despite Lelos’ desperate attempts to score, to one last incredible play.
In any case, the Georgians have the possibility to aim for the 3rd place, which will qualify for the next World Cup. But it will be titanic: beating Wales and hoping for an Australian defeat without a bonus against Portugal.
Look at the kindness of Fiji’s success that leaves them almost in the quarterfinals, a chance where they will cross against the 1st in the group of Los Pumas:
