Tip Wales - Uruguay
The weather isn't affecting this match as it had some other 2019 Rugby World Cup fixtures. Wales take on Uruguay in their final Pool D game and it's one they have to win to maintain their position at the top. Finishing in first place will see them take on France in the last eight, dropping to second means a game against England. Wales have won all three of their Pool D matches so far. They defeated Georgia 43-14, had a vital win over Australia winning by four points and then defeated Fiji 29-17. They had to come from behind in that last match but it did clinch their place in the last eight. They did pick up some injuries though and are likely to make a few changes as they prepare for the quarter finals. Definitely missing this gam is Dan Biggar who sustained a head injury in the game against Fiji.
Uruguay are bottom of the pool but did manage to get a 30-27 win over Fiji. Their other two games saw them lose by 26 points to Georgia and by 35 to Australia. They can be backed to win on a +45 point handicap, especially as the Welsh side will be playing a less than full strength side.

Conclusion Wales - Uruguay
Wales should have no difficulty in winning this final Pool D match. That will see them top the pool and meet France in the last eight rather than England. They have had a few hard moments in the pool and will be making changes for this final game. Uruguay are bottom but did get a win over Fiji so it hasn't been a total disaster for the South Americans. They haven't lost by 45 points in any of their games so far and can be backed to win on a -45 points handicap.
