Australia vs Georgia (9:15pm AEDT)
Australia (-24.5)

The Wallabies final Pool D game at the 2019 World Cup is slated for Friday and they will be eager to record an easy win over minnows Georgia, to tune up for what will be a tough run through the knockout stages of the tournament.

While producing an appalling first half against Fiji, signs looked good for the Wallabies after they managed to change tac and comfortably win that match. They also performed well in the second half of their match with Wales, but it was all too little, too late. A full eighty-minute performances is clearly what is required of Michael Cheika’s men if they are any chance of making the final four, and this looms as the ideal opportunity to try and produce that.

Georgia are clearly outclassed in this fixture and simply put, will not win. I think that they’ll struggle to contain the Wallabies from the opening moment.

The line is only 24.5 points and that looks extremely manageable for the men in gold.
