Rugby commentator, Willie Lose says the Fiji-Wales Junior World Championship match is the one to watch in South Africa on Tuesday morning.
Not only is this the tournament opener, Lose believes both sides are evenly matched and it’s the highlight of first round pool games.
“I say that only because Fiji won the encounter last year and in 2010 Wales won on both accounts and that’s a match where Fiji want to stay as a core team. Speaking to coach Sale, he says they’re in sixth position and it’s the best they’ve been in a long time. And his words, not mine he says they feel they are the start of the sausage factory, where they don’t get to eat the sausage on the barbecue at the end… but they just slowly bring these guys through to develop their skills and it’s going to be a game evenly matched.”
The Fiji-Wales match kicks off at 12.45am on Tuesday.
Lose’s preview for the firsr round games anticipates England beating Italy while Australia will run over Scotland in Pool B matches.
He adds France should overcome Argentina while Ireland will be no match for hosts, South Africa.
The NZ-Samoa match will be broadcast live on FBC TV at 2.45am followed by Ireland versus the Baby Boks at 4.45am.
