The Wallabies meet Georgia in their final Pool D match before the knockout stages begin. Join The Roar from 9:15pm (AEDT) for this clash.

The Wallabies will look to secure second spot, and a meeting with England, by beating the Georgians.

It has been a tough tournament for Georgia with two losses and a solitary win over Uruguay 33-7.

Wales put 42 points on them and Fiji 45.

But it’s hardly been great so far for the Aussies either. They struggled against the Fijians and then lost in a thriller to the Welsh.

The Wallabies have had their discipline problems, falling foul of the referees constantly.

Coach Michael Cheika has made 10 changes to his starting XV, with captain Michael Hooper rested and David Pocock given the armband.

Rob Simmons replaces the injured Adam Coleman on the bench as only Jack Dempsey, Nic White, Matt Toomua, Kurtley Beale and Jordan Petaia keep their place from the victory against Uruguay.

Petaia moves to the right wing while Toomua moves from inside centre to fly-half.

Georgia have made just two changes to the side that lost to Fiji with scrum-half Gela Aprasidze and number eight Beka Saginadze coming into the XV.

Australia and Georgia, ranked 14th in the world, have never previously met on the rugby field before.

Prediction
The Wallabies should demolish Georgia and secure a bonus point.

Wales to win by 40 points.
