Wales vs Argentina (15:00 GMT, Stade Vélodrome)
Wales have dominated this year’s World Cup, topping pool C comfortably while sweeping Australia aside in the pool. Can they continue their dominance against an inspired Argentine team?
Both teams have no margin for error if they must go forward in the tournament, although Wales seems to be the clear favorite for this matchup. We equally cannot write off the South Americans, as they have shown they can be giant slayers in this World Cup.
The stage is set for this mouth-watering tie. The question remains: who will be able to emerge victorious in this fixture?
Ireland vs New Zealand (19:00 GMT, Stade de France, Saint-Denis)
In a nail-biting game, Ireland beat Scotland 34-16 to secure their place in the knockout stages of the Rugby World Cup. Meanwhile, in pool A, New Zealand bounced back from their opening-game loss to France and won their next three games, securing their spot in the last eight. Now, Ireland and New Zealand will face off for a place in the semi-finals in a game that carries so much promise for excitement.
Both teams head into this fixture in great form, and New Zealand would be looking to focus on the game after a bit of drama in their ranks. Star winger Mark Talea was dropped from the team after he was found to have breached team protocol. Can they rise above the incidence and keep their hope alive to lift France’s 2023 Rugby World Cup?
To do this, they must be at their best against a well-organized Ireland team looking to make history by advancing to their maiden semi-final. It sure will be a thriller to watch and a good way to spend your weekend.
