RECAP: Australia v Uruguay
READERS’ FORUM: Welcome to the World Cup pool match between Australia and Uruguay in Oita.
The gulf between the teams is large, with Australia sixth in the rankings and Uruguay well down at 18, but Wallabies coach Michael Cheika is taking no chances against a team that handed Fiji a shock defeat.
Prediction: Don’t think there will be any sort of upset, Australia will comfortably win this by 25 points or more!
