Portugal vs Australia A Predictions


I fancy Australia A to win this match convincingly. While Portugal certainly have quality, Australia A is filled with players with international caps. I’m backing the Aussies to cover the -19 handicap.

Head to Head


These sides have never bet before.

Portugal Form


Portugal have only played one Rugby World Cup warm-up game. They, however, impressed in that fixture, beating the USA 46-20 at home.

This will be Portugal’s second-ever World Cup appearance after debuting in 2007. They have a far better side this time around and are expected to be more competitive.

However, Australia A are a team that could easily beat some lower-tier-one nations so this will be no easy task.

Portugal Injuries & Team News


Portugal should be at full strength for this match.

Australia A Form


Australia A are simply players who failed to make the Wallabies squad. They will however be keen to perform as they will have a chance of a call-up from Eddie Jones should there be injuries in the next two months.

It is a strong squad that has traveled for Australia A so they will be keen on getting a result.

Australia A Injuries & Team News


Australia A have a good squad, including a number of players who have many Wallabies caps. James O’Connor will be keen to show he still has the quality while Bernard Foley is likely to start at flyhalf.

Verdict

I'm backing Australia A to cover the -19 handicap in this clash.
