Match preview:

Uruguay look to finish a pleasing RWC campaign with an unlikely win against Wales, who want to end the group stages on a high. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog from 7:15pm (AEDT).

These teams have enough to play for. Wales are currently second in their pool, but will want to claim that top spot, which anything more than a draw will do.

Uruguay are last in group, with no chance of making the quarter-finals. They trail Fiji by three points, so a win for them would sneak them into third, meaning they would automatically qualify for the 2023 tournament.

Geography makes qualifying difficult for Los Teros, so to land a place now would take off a lot of pressure.

This will go down as a successful effort from them, with the upset win against Fiji, but Australia and Georgia thoroughly beat them, so they’re not quite up to Tier 2 standard yet.

Uruguay scored just one try against Australia, but also had a try taken off them for offside, so you could say they were hard done by.

One of their most impressive players in the last game, Manuel Diana, has been benched, which would affect them. He was a workhorse against the Wallabies.

There have been nine changes made. Andres Vilaseca, Diego Arbelo, Felipe Berchesi, Manuel Leindekar and Nicolas Freitas remain in the run-on team.

Warren Gatland has made 13 changes for the Welsh, in his last chance to experiment before the quarters. Hadleigh Parkes and Josh Adams hold their positions from the Fiji game, while Rhys Patchell, after an impressive performance, holds down his spot. Flanker Justin Tipuric will captain the inexperienced XV.

There was talk during the week of Gatland playing forwards as backs, but that didn’t eventuate. However, the four-day turnaround means they’ll be short of replacements.

They’ll play a six-two split of forwards and backs on the bench, but both reserve backs are scrumhalves, so expect to see some shuffling if there’s an injury.

This isn’t the biggest test for Wales, they’ll be looking ahead to the quarter-finals. That could play into Uruguay’s favour, if the Welsh take a win for granted.

Wales by 15.
