Rugby World Cup 2019 - Australia V Fiji 21.9.2019

 

Australia VS Fiji

Australia’s Rugby World Cup 2019 campaign gets underway with a game against Fiji in Sapporo.

Australia are difficult to read going into the tournament, with some very mixed performances coming into the finals in Japan. Their stay in the tournament could be largely dependent on the fitness of David Pocock.

The Fijians certainly can’t be taken lightly, having pulled off a notable 21-14 win over France in the Stade de France in Paris in November 2018. Although they suffered a loss to Japan in the Pacific Nations Cup, they’ve since gone on to beat Canada, Samoa and Tonga in the build-up to the Rugby World Cup and should be full of confidence. 

This is clearly a dangerous game for the Wallabies, but the Australia v Fiji prediction is a win for Michael Cheika’s men, albeit odds of 1.18 with Unibet don’t appeal. On the Handicap, Fiji +16 at 1.91 with bet365 looks attractive. 

As the date of the game nears, additional betting markets will become available and there should be plenty of Australia v Fiji free bets to be snapped up.

Australia v Fiji Prediction: Fiji +16 @ 1.91 with bet365
