How Australia and Fiji play and Statistics
Australia’s style of play has been known for many years. It is focused on being a team with a high level in forwards and backs and with an automation of movements typical of this era. It is worth mentioning a great figure of the Australian rugby and that is Quade Cooper who has a great experience and quality.
On the other hand, Fiji is a team with a strong influence of rugby sevens, and this makes their players have great skills to dominate the ball. They always propose a physical game where they usually impose themselves on their rivals. They show mistakes due to their inexperience, although they have improved their level compared to other years. The participation of the captain of the team, Waisea Nayacalevu Vuidravuwalu, stands out.

Prediction Australia vs Fiji Rugby World Cup 2023
It is obvious that in the Australia vs Fiji match, the Wallabies are the main candidates to win the match. The difference will be in the uncontrollable fishing of Michael Hooper who will give his team penalties to score points directly or to go to the line and try to score 5 points. The match will be won against an opponent that has grown, but is below this power.
Prediction: Australia 37-10 Fiji. Victory for the Wallabies.
