Tonga lost for the third game in succession as they were beaten by South Africa but they produced some decent moments once again and will be content with their efforts at this Rugby World Cup.


Romania were nilled for the second game in-a-row in what was a hammering against Scotland. The Romanians conceded 84 points without reply and their defensive resilience will be of concern ahead of this final pool game.


Tonga have done relatively well at the RWC and despite losing all of their games, they have produced some good attacking play. They will fancy their chances of getting off the mark here as they take on a woeful Romania outfit and they should win this comfortably.

BETTING TIP: Tonga -18
