One of the strongest contenders at the 2015 Rugby World Cup, Australia begins its tournament Wednesday against Fiji.
Moreover, while Japan’s shocking upset of South Africa over the weekend will likely provide even more hope for Fiji, which battled England tough before eventually falling to the hosts, it has also put Australia on notice.
“I think they were going to come hard no matter what and we’re going to try to showcase our type of footy, whatever the occasion,” said lock Will Skelton. “We’d play a smart game with power and physicality. I’m just really looking forward to it, they’re going to be up for it now.”
In what is largely being regarded to as the “Pool of Death,” every match is undoubtedly compelling. Here’s everything you need to know to watch this one:
