Wales are through to the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals, and today's match will be crucial in deciding who joins them from Pool C
One of four teams is going to progress from Pool C with Wales, but who will it be? You’ll want to watch a Fiji v Georgia live stream to see who’ll have the upper hand going into the final weekend of the competition. This article includes details of how to tune in wherever you are – including information on how to watch for FREE on ITV1 and ITVX in the UK.
Stade de Bordeaux is the venue for this intriguing battle, which kicks off at 4:45pm (BST) on a warm, sunny afternoon in the south-west of France. If you’re watching from outside your country, you can use a VPN to watch Fiji v Georgia FOR FREE from abroad via ExpressVPN.
Fiji were edged out by Wales in a thrilling first round encounter but bounced back with a historic 22-15 victory over the freefalling Wallabies. They’ve arguably been one of the standout teams of the tournament so far, so it’s no surprise that head coach Simon Raiwalui has made just one change to his starting line-up, with Selesitino Ravutaumada coming in for the injured Jiuta Wainiqol on the wing.
Georgia have been a big disappointment in this Rugby World Cup, losing to Australia first up before scraping a draw against Portugal last weekend. Head coach Levan Maisashviki has mixed things up a lot more than his counterpart, making seven changes to the starting 15 – including an all-new half-back pairing of Vasil Lobzhanidze and Luka Matkava.
Fiji won the last World Cup meeting between the two sides, coming out on top of a 45-10 scoreline in 2019. Today’s match is refereed by England’s Karl Dickson.
