Fiji were given a real scare against Georgia but did what was required in the second half and are on the verge of knocking Australia out of the competition. The Fijians just need a win in this final pool game to finish in second spot in Pool C.


Portugal put up a solid fight against Australia in their penultimate game of the competition but were unable to come away with the spoils. They have performed admirably at the RWC and will now aim to bow out on a high in this clash with Fiji.


Fiji know they cannot afford to become complacent after they had to dig deep to overcome Georgia last time out. They just need a win here to make history and book their place in the knockout stages at the expense of Australia and while Portugal will not lay down for them, they should have the quality to get the job done.

BETTING TIP: Fiji to win
