Scotland vs Tonga Betting Tips Rugby World Cup 2023
The red team arrives at the Rugby World Cup 2023 after finishing last in the Pacific Nations Cup 2022 without being able to score points. They were 14 points behind the champions, Samoa. They have not been performing well lately and must correct several aspects of the game to be a competent team. Scotland could finish in the middle of the table of the last 6 Nations 2022 by finishing with 15 points, 12 behind the first, Ireland. The European side has the taint of competing more successfully against the major powers.
How Scotland and Tonga play and Statistics
Ikale Tahi is a team with clear physical power and little imagination. They have a decent set of forwards and backs who have speed, power and toughness in contact, however, the game tends to be messy and not all the virtues are brought to bear. We can highlight the captain, Sonatane Takulua. The Thistle has a solid forwards game (where wing Jamie Ritchie stands out) but they are constantly looking for one of their main stars, Duhan van der Merwe, a player with an imposing physique who makes the difference on the wing.

Prediction Scotland vs Tonga Rugby World Cup 2023
It is an important conclave for the Europeans if they do not want to lose the race to enter the next round. Scotland vs Tonga will be a very physical and tight encounter, where the power of speed that the Scots have will come to the fore from the tiredness of their opponents as the minutes go by. The Tongans will do their best to resist, but they will still be facing the 5th in the world ranking. Townsend’s team should have no problem to beat the Oceanians and dream of staying in the impressive Rugby World Cup 2023 that keeps attracting us day by day.
