Wallabies won't have our flair: Fiji coach

Wallabies won't have our flair: Fiji coach

Lealiifano is moving to Japan permanently after the World Cup, having left the Brumbies, and will be keen to stand out.

"When your previous performance was a World Cup final, that is everyone's expectation", she told the Sydney Morning Herald in comments published Thursday, despite mixed fortunes so far this year for the Wallabies, who have won three and lost two of their five Tests to date in 2019.

He had been preferred by coach John McKee at centre since making his rugby union test debut against Georgia past year.

"All that accumulated experience probably counts more than caps".

In what is arguably the biggest match of the pool stages, New Zealand take on South Africa, who will look towards several European-based players as they try to beat the defending champions.

But when Cheika was asked by AFP in Sapporo on Thursday if Castle's remarks had created extra pressure for him and the team, replied: "You should know me well enough by now that there's not much pressure".

"For us, that type of game can suit us as well".

A young Vunipola was in the crowd when his father Fe'ao Vunipola played for Tonga against England in London at the 1999 World Cup, a game that finished 101-10 to the home side.

"It's unbelievable, it's absolutely flawless conditions to play rugby".

"We're aiming for the final", Mata said.

Since then, fortunes have been up and down for Jones and England but they enjoyed a strong World Cup warm-up, highlighted with a thumping win over world No 1 side Ireland.

"For us it'll be a game of limited opportunities and we have to make sure that we nail opportunities and turn them into points". The difference here is that we're on grass, which we prefer.

While the team won't be formally named until Thursday, it us understood both will start against Fiji, with Hooper at openside flanker and Pocock at blindside.

"But it's still a work-on for us, the discipline side of the game".

Namibia is participating in its sixth World Cup and scrumhalf Eugene Jantjies will feature in his fourth if he comes off the bench against the Italians in a Pool B game on Sunday at Hanazono Rugby Stadium.

Explaining his analogy, Jones said: "We are at the top of the ride now, we are looking down ― everyone's nervous, everyone's excited. (They have) a lot of guys who have had some good time in Europe playing and we're very aware of the threats that these guys have across the park: big forward pack, fast, fit athletic men so definitely ready for what they have to offer and it's definitely going to be a great challenge to kick-off where we're at".
