Australia’s final pool outing will be a good opportunity to hone their attacking and defensive structures for the looming quarter-final
Having been given the all-clear by tournament organisers, the Wallabies will enter their final World Cup Pool D game against Georgia at Shizuoka Stadium on Friday night in the knowledge they are safe from inclement weather, but without knowing their best team.
Or do they? Michael Cheika, along with co-selectors Scott Johnson and Michael O’Connor, appeared to have a stark choice between naming a full-strength team to play Georgia and continuing to experiment. Somehow they managed to go close to achieving both objectives.
