Opponents Wales got the job done early against Georgia as they claimed their bonus point before half time - but Warren Gatland will be a little concerned with the way they tailed off in the second half of their 43-14 win.With both sides getting opening wins under their belt, this match looks almost certain to decide who will finish top of Pool D.What time does Australia vs Wales kick off?
Australia vs Wales will take place on Sunday, September 29.
It will kick off at 8.45am UK time - 4.15pm in Japan and 5.15pm in Sydney.
In arguably the most important group stage clash at the 2019 Rugby World Cup bar New Zealand vs South Africa, the Wallabies face Wales at Tokyo Stadium on Sunday.
Australia were shaky in their 39-21 win over Fiji, but they can be a fearsome outfit when in full flow. Just ask the All Blacks, who suffered a shock 47-26 defeat to Michael Cheika’s men in the Rugby Championship.
For once, however, the Wallabies will not start this clash as favourites. Warren Gatland’s Wales surprised England and Ireland at this year’s Six Nations, winning the Grand Slam. This after an incredible string of performances late in 2018, including a 9-6 win over Sunday’s opponents.
Wales started their World Cup with a solid 43-14 win over a dangerous Georgia side and have every right to feel optimistic heading into the weekend’s crunch clash.

However, the second half of their RWC opener was far tougher than the first and Gatland was the first to hold his hand up and admit as much.
“I don’t think we tried to hide any moves in the second half,” he told reporters. “We spoke about being smart and in the second half, the ball got slippery and there was moisture, so handling for both teams was quite tough.
“We do have a few things up our sleeve next week – it’s tough with a six-day turnaround. We’ve got to make sure we recover well and then start really planning.”
The Wallabies were rocked in the build-up to the World Cup by the termination of fullback Israel Folau’s Rugby Australia contract due to a series of homophobic social media posts. The jury is still out on whether or not they can reach their full potential without him.

From the writer: Wales will feel after the opening round of Rugby World Cup fixtures that they are a better team than the Wallabies. Warren Gatland’s men have been as good as anyone over the last two years and are backed to win this one by six points.
