Wallabies vs Fiji Pool C tips

Wallabies to win


Over 50.5 points


The Wallabies continue their Rugby World Cup campaign from 1.45am AEST Monday morning as they take on Fiji at Stade Geoffrey-Guichard Stadium in Saint Étienne. Keep reading to get the latest team news and free Wallabies vs. Fiji betting tips and predictions for their Pool C clash.

The Wallabies are a heavy favourite with rugby betting sites to win this clash, priced at -333.33, with the Fijians at +250 after a promising showing against Wales in the opening round.

The Wallabies will be looking to continue their winning ways after banking their first win under new coach Eddie Jones in the opening round of the RWC, with a 35-15 victory over Georgia.

Opening their campaign strongly, the Wallabies scored inside two minutes before taking a 21-3 lead into halftime. Fullback Ben Donaldson was the key contributor for the Wallabies, scoring two tries for a total of 25 points in the match.

After getting the job done in a must-win clash, the Wallabies now must switch their focus to the Fijians, who are a danger on Australia’s path to the next round.

Fiji faced off against Wales in the best match of the Rugby World Cup so far, going down 32-26 in a high-scoring clash. A close match throughout, the Fijians trailed by just four points at halftime before the Welsh scored a pair of tries just after halftime. Two late tries gave the Fijians hope of a miracle comeback, but they fell just short.

Despite the loss, the Fijians still earned themselves two bonus points during the match, one for scoring four tries and the other for losing by less than seven points. If they win against the Wallabies, they will hold the advantage in proceeding to the knockout stages.

The Wallabies will be missing key front rower Taniela Tupou for this match as he battles a hamstring injury. They may find themselves undermanned in the front row, as they are already missing props James Slipper and Pone Fa’amausili for the match. First-choice scrum-half Tate McDermott will also be missing due to a concussion, with Nic White expected to fill the role.

Wallabies v Fiji betting picks

These two sides have RWC history, facing each other in each of the last two editions, with Australia winning by more than 15 points in both matchups. Despite their poor form coming into this World Cup, Australia put forth their best performance last week. Having made it out of the group stage in every edition of the tournament so far, we are expecting the Wallabies to put together another solid performance in this match. Back the Aussies at -333.33 at the best online sportsbooks with confidence.

Since Eddie Jones took over the coaching role in July, the Wallabies have struggled in defense, conceding over 30 in four of their six matches. Similarly, the Fijians have also played in some high-scoring games this year, where the total match points have been over 47 points every time. Expecting another high-scoring matchup, we are backing this match to have over 50.5 points at -111.11 with Bovada.
