The Wallabies will get their Rugby World Cup campaign underway on Saturday, September 21 as they take on Fiji. The match is set to kick-off at 2:45pm (AEST) on Saturday, September 21, with it to be played at the Sapporo Dome in Japan.

The Sapporo Dome is an indoor stadium, located in Toyohira-ku, and Australia’s game against Fiji will be Match 2 at the Rugby World Cup after it gets underway on Friday night when host nation Japan take on Russia.

As Japan is only one hour behind Australia, local time kick-off will be at 1:45pm.

The Australian outfit are almost in a must-win position straight away, however, will enter this match as heavy favourites, before their second outing against Wales, followed by their final Pool D matches against Uruguay and Georgia.

Australia’s form is up and down though, with a big win over Samoa following a mixed Rugby Championship in Bledisloe Cup, where they won Game 1 against the All Blacks, but then were belted across the Tasman in Game 2.
