Australia vs England

Australia vs England Live : Australia vs England Live Stream, England head coach Eddie Jones has sprung a surprise in naming his starting XV for Saturday’s Rugby World Cup quarter-final clash against Australia.Despite the disruption caused by Typhoon Hagibis, England and Australia are both safely through to the quarter-finals of the Rugby World Cup.

Just when you thought you’d got Eddie Jones all worked out… the England coach goes and springs a huge World Cup surprise.George Ford, who has played exceptionally well over these first three games in the World Cup, has been dropped to the bench for England’s biggest game in eight years.

Out goes George Ford, who is replaced at fly-half by Owen Farrell.Captain Farrell has appeared at centre so far this tournament, but Henry Slade replaces him in the midfield, forming a potent partnership with Manu Tuilagi.

On the decision to leave Ford out, Jones told Sky Sports: “We don’t see it as dropping. I know the media does – but we see him as playing a different role. He is going to finish the game for us, and have an equally important role as when he was starting.

“We have a number of other players in our squad of 31 who are disappointed, but they are all professional enough. They have got a great team spirit and they know they have got a role to play.

“Everyone has got a role to play on the Saturday, even our guys outside the 23. George understands the role he has to play. Obviously he would have liked to start but he is coping with it well.”

BILLY’S BACK

Billy Vunipola has recovered from the ankle injury he suffered against Argentina to take his place in the back row alongside Tom Curry and Sam Underhill.

Mako Vunipola, Billy’s brother, makes his first start of the World Cup at prop with Joe Marler dropping down to the bench.

Meanwhile, in the second row Jones has gone for the tough-tackling Courtney Lawes instead of line-out specialist George Kruis.

The selection of Lawes and Mako Vunipola suggests that Jones is confident England have the edge over Australia in the set-piece and he is more concerned with winning the battle in the loose.

Kruis is a better line-out jumper than Lawes and Marler a superior scrummager to Vunipola, but neither is as prominent in defence.

“We need to defend with brutality and when we have the ball we need play on top of them,” said Jones.

New Zealand vs Ireland RWC Live: New Zealand vs Ireland RWC Live Stream, New Zealand face Ireland in the second quarter-final of the 2019 Rugby World Cup.New Zealand topped Pool B beating South Africa, Canada and Namibia before their final game was cancelled against Italy. Ireland came second in Pool A. They beat Scotland, Russia and Samoa but lost to hosts Japan.

The All Blacks are expected to be at full-strength to face Ireland. Steve Hansen is likely to continue with Richie Mo’unga starting at fly-half with Beauden Barrett continuing at fullback.

New Zealand face a selection dilemma in the centres with Ryan Crotty, Anton Lienert-Brown, Jack Goodhue and Sonny Bill Williams all impressing in the World Cup so far.

Ireland face the unenviable task of trying to end New Zealand’s 12-year unbeaten run at Rugby World Cups when they meet in Tokyo for a place in the last four on Saturday.

All Blacks, looking to win their third successive title, last lost a World Cup match in the quarter-final of the 2007 tournament, against France. Ireland, meanwhile, have never reached the semi-finals of a World Cup, having fallen at this stage on no fewer than six occasions.

The reigning champions finished top of Pool B despite having their final game called off by Typhoon Hagibis, largely thanks to an impressive opening weekend win over South Africa.

Ireland

Ireland are expected to have a fully fit squad to select from. Jonny Sexton and Joey Carbery both seem to have overcome niggling injuries. Robbie Henshaw played for over an hour against Samoa while Rob Kearney and Rhys Ruddock will be back in contention to play.

However a cloud hangs over the Ireland squad due to the red card handed out to Bundee Aki in the Samoa game. Aki is expected to be banned for a number of matches at a hearing on Monday but Ireland have decided to fly in a specialist lawyer to Japan to help with Aki’s case.

What is the head-to-head record of both sides?

New Zealand and Ireland have played each other on 31 occasions with the All Blacks winning 28 of them. Ireland have one two games with one draw back in 1973.

Wales vs France Quarter Final Live

Wales vs France: Wales vs France Live Stream in the first quarter-final of the 2019 Rugby World Cup. Wales came top of Pool D after beating Georgia, Australia and Uruguay. France came second in Pool C after their match against England was cancelled, despite beating Argentina, Tonga, and USA.

Dan Biggar starts at fly-half ahead of Rhys Patchell while Josh Navidi starts at No 8 instead of Ross Moriarty.Wyn Jones, Ken Owens and Tomas Francis are the starting front row forwards once again, and Alun Wyn Jones captains the side from the second row.

At the team announcement on Friday, Gatland said: “Not just as coaches but as players, this is what you do all the hard work for. As a coaching group, we’ve had a lot of success in big matches when it’s really mattered and counted.

“Whether that’s Grand Slam games, Lions tours, European or Premiership finals with Wasps. We’ve got a good formula of getting things right. It’s not just physical, it’s about being mentally right.

Gatland also commented that his side were yet to deliver a complete performance at the tournament.“We’re very focused on wanting to go out there and stay in this tournament. There is a lot of confidence in this squad. We haven’t given an 80 minute performance here.

Wales

Warren Gatland is expected to have a fully-fit 31-man squad to choose from for this quarter-final, with Dan Biggar and Jonathan Davies set to be fit to play after sitting out the win over Uruguay with a head and knee knock respectively.

George North is expected to have recovered from an ankle injury, while Hadleigh Parkes’ shoulder injury is not thought to be serious.

Gatland’s biggest dilemma will come on the back-row, where hard-hitting Ross Moriarty is likely to miss out as Aaron Wainwright, Josh Navidi and Justin Tipuric aim to pick up where they left off in Wales’ biggest match thus far, against Australia in the pool stages.

France

France coach Jacques Brunel will be sweating over the fitness of star duo Antoine Dupont and Damian Penaud, both of whom are reported injury doubts ahead of the match.

According to French media reports, Dupont has bee struggling with a back niggle, with Toulon-bound Baptiste Serin set to start if Dupont cannot recover.

Penaud’s injury is reportedly less serious, but the dangerous Alivereti Raka will be the man to step up if the Clermont youngster cannot recover from a stomach strain.

Wales and France have faced each other on 97 previous occasions, the first match taking place in 1908 and Wales just have the edge, winning 50 times.

Wales have won seven of the last 10 meetings, however, with their latest triumph coming in the form of that thrilling comeback at the Stade de France, during the 2019 Six Nations.

France are volatile and out for revenge – they will be dangerous and Wales will know that. Les Bleus have some superb individuals – on paper they look as good, if not better, than Wales.

Nonetheless, Wales’ spirit and gritty determination will be enough to get them through. They have won their only match against ‘Tier one’ opposition this tournament, where they upped their game impressively, and they will be readying themselves for another World Cup semi-final.
