World Cup 2023: Day 15 Preview

Yesterday's crucial Pool D clash saw Japan come out on top against Samoa meaning they've now setup what is likely to be a 1/8 final against Argentina next weekend.

Tonight, we have a massive fixture in Pool A, as Italy attempt to pull off a huge upset that would see New Zealand eliminated from the World Cup during this pool stage.

Rugby World Cup Day 14 results:

🇯🇵 Japan 28-22 Samoa 🇼🇸
Result predicted by 48% of Superbru players
🎯 Exact margin predicted by 2.8% of Superbru players

Japan took control of this game fairly early on and then kept themselves in front throughout the contest, holding off a late surge from Samoa who had been reduced to 14 men because of a red card for Ben Lam. A disappointing night for Samoa who will now miss out on a place in the knockouts, while this result also confirmed England's place in the final 8.

Rugby World Cup Day 15 schedule

🇳🇿 New Zealand vs. Italy 🇮🇹
Kick-off at 21:00 local time
🏟 Groupama Stadium, Lyon

The All Blacks are of course strong favourites tonight, but there's no room for error and Italy will give this game absolutely everything they have following some confidence boosting wins over Namibia and Uruguay.

As you can see, New Zealand have named a strong team that includes Sam Whitelock on the bench who is set to become the All Blacks' most-capped player in history.

A big match coming up! We hope you all enjoy it.
