Wales V Australia Tops Rugby World Cup Ties Today

One of the games of the World Cup so far is in prospect at Twickenham this afternoon. Australia meet Wales, with the winners set to top Pool A and avoid a quarter final with the Springboks. Kick-off is at quarter-to-five. Meanwhile, a win for Scotland over Samoa at St. James’s Park will see them secure second place in Pool B. Hosts England bow out of the tournament with a meeting with Uruguay at Manchester’s Etihad Stadium. Last night the All Blacks ran in seven tries as they beat Tonga 47-points to 9 in Newcastle to make it 4-wins from 4 and finish top of World Cup Pool C. The defending champions will play the loser of Ireland’s game with France. The rugby league Super League grand final takes place tonight. Leeds are attempting to complete a treble, after winning the league leaders’ shield and the Challenge Cup. Wigan are appearing in this match for the third year in a row.
