Two teams, one must-win match. Pool C’s second-placed team Fiji have Rugby World Cup quarter-final qualification on their minds. Fourth-placed Georgia, who are still in the last-eight running, more realistically have third place, and automatic qualification for the 2027 tournament in Australia on theirs. Meanwhile, the Wallabies, who play on Sunday, will be watching with interest.

The Eastern Europeans’ enthralling 18-18 draw against Portugal in Toulouse last weekend leaves them needing bonus-point wins in both of their last two matches to maintain an outside chance of reaching the knockout phase.

Head coach Levan Maisashviki has made seven changes to his starting 15, including the half-back pairing, with scrum-half Vasil Lobzhanidze and fly-half Luka Matkava in for Gela Aprasidze and Tedo Abzhandadze respectively.

Fiji’s win over Australia last time out, and their losing bonus-point against Wales puts them in the box seat for the second qualification slot in Pool C. A win here would consolidate their position, with a final match against Portugal to come.

With that in mind, Fiji head coach Simon Raiwalui has named a strong squad, featuring just one, injury enforced, change to his starting line-up, as Selesitino Ravutaumada comes in for Jiuta Wainiqolo.
