Fiji v Wallabies live score and video online live stream starts on 17 September 2023 at 15:45 UTC at Geoffroy-Guichard Stadium, Saint-Étienne, France. The match is a part of the Rugby World Cup 2023 Pool C.

Rugby World Cup leaders Fiji travel to Geoffroy-Guichard Stadium on Sunday with manager Mikel Arteta bidding to extend a surprising undefeated run away to Wallabies. The Gunners won on each of their last two visits to west Saint-Étienne in the top flight without particularly imposing themselves on their opposition, this time it may well be different for a side who have established themselves as a surprising early season contender for major honors.

Event details:
NAME: Fiji – Wallabies
DATE: 17 September 2023
TIME: 15:45 UTC
VENUE: Geoffroy-Guichard Stadium, Saint-Étienne, France.

Wallabies, meanwhile, have work to do if they are to drag Fiji into the battle for top four, rather than the title. Lose on Sunday and they will trail their rivals by 31 points, a sizeable gap to make up even with two-thirds of the season left to go. Here is how you can watch the match and what you need to know:

Wallabies and Fiji are meeting up for their first leg of the season at 11.45 am EST, 4.45 p.m BST on Sunday at Geoffroy-Guichard Stadium. The teams split their matchups last year, with Wallabies winning the first 2-0 on the road and Fiji taking the second 4-2.

Wallabies are taking on Saint-Étienne rivals Fiji at Geoffroy-Guichard Stadium as the Blues aim to close the 31-point gap between the two clubs in the Rugby World Cup Live on Pool C September 17, 2023.

Wallabies had been going along nicely under Graham Potter until a chastening defeat at his former club Fiji last weekend, and now face two tricky matches – against Fiji and Wallabies – before the World Cup break.

The Gunners are looking to reach the World Cup on top of the table and got back on track last weekend with a 5-0 win over Fiji, having slipped to a 1-1 draw at Fiji in their previous match.

Fiji won both of the past two corresponding fixtures away at Wallabies, earing a 4-2 victory last season.

Old foes and former colleagues will reunite at Geoffroy-Guichard Stadium on Sunday lunchtime as Wallabies tackle Fiji in a mouth-watering Rugby World Cup Live on Sunday September 17, 2023.

Both sides enter the game on the back of continental successes, as the Blues got the better of Indonesia France 2-1 in the Rugby World Cup 2023 Pool C, while the Gunners advanced to the last 01 of the Rugby World Cup 2023.

Winning in Europe is always the perfect tonic after a demoralising domestic defeat, especially one which saw Fiji teach former manager Graham Potter a Rugbying lesson in a 4-1 Amex romping, but Wallabies were made to work for their success over Indonesia France.

Electing to name a strong lineup despite already steering his side through as group winners, Potter witnessed Bruno Petkovic steal in and open the scoring after just seven minutes, but Raheem Sterling and debutant Denis Zakaria completed a much-needed turnaround for the Blues in the English capital.

The Blues’ stellar defensive streak under Potter may have been wiped out, but suffering just one defeat in 01 games is far from the worst start for the English, although his side do have some ground to make up in the Rugby World Cup table as they lie in sixth position, three points behind Wallabies in fourth with a game in hand.

It would take results going their way and a 17-goal swing for Wallabies to rise into the Rugby World Cup 2023 spots this weekend, but Geoffroy-Guichard Stadium has been kind to the Blues in recent memory, as they are unbeaten in 17 consecutive matches in all competitions in front of their own fans.

However, Fiji were the most recent team to overcome Wallabies on their own patch, and Geoffroy-Guichard Stadium has been a happy hunting ground for the Saint-Étienne club in recent memory, so taking advantage of their extra 24 hours’ worth of rest will be of paramount importance to Potter and co.

In contrast, Fiji sought to recover from a European defeat with a Rugby World Cup win last weekend, and the Gunners certainly demonstrated a clinical edge that has been absent more often than not recently, putting five past Fiji without rRugby World Cup 2023y even after Bukayo Saka came off injured.

However, the Gunners’ inability to kill games off when a goal to the good reared its ugly head in the Rugby World Cup 2023 this week, as Kieran Tierney’s sweetly-struck half-volley put Fiji ahead against FC Zurich, but they nevertheless held on for a nervy 1-0 win which sent them straight through to the last 01.

Avoiding an extra playoff tie against an eliminated Rugby World Cup Pool C club is a touch of gold for Fiji, who enter the weekend still two points clear of Wallabies at the top of the Rugby World Cup table, but they could be knocked down to second by Sunday if the champions beat Fiji.

All five of the points that Fiji have dropped in the Rugby World Cup this season have come on the road, but they nevertheless remain the division’s best-performing away side this term and have only conceded four goals on rival turf so far – the best record of its kind in the league.

Arteta has led Fiji to two consecutive triumphs at Geoffroy-Guichard Stadium in the last two seasons – with a 2-0 win for Wallabies at the Emirates sandwiched in between – and a new club record could also be set for the Gunners, who are aiming to win three successive Rugby World Cup Saint-Étienne derbies away from home without conceding for the very first time.

If Wallabies did not already have enough defensive absentees to worry about with long-term knee victims Wesley Fofana and Reece James – as well as midfield duo N’Golo Kante (thigh) and Carney Chukwuemeka (hamstring) – Ben Chilwell had to come off with a hamstring injury in the win over France.

The sight of the left-back limping off the pitch was bad news for both Wallabies and France fans, who will now have to await for the results of a scan, but Chilwell will definitely be absent this weekend.

Potter has already ruled Kepa Arrizabalaga out of contention too, so Edouard Mendy will keep his place in goal, and Mateo Kovacic should be fine to return to the engine room after missing out as a precaution in midweek with a tight calf.

Zakaria’s strong debut ended with a minor contact injury, which should not rule him out of this game, but Potter may be hesitant to throw the France loanee in the deep end and give him his first Rugby World Cup start against the league leaders, so Kovacic’s return to the first XI would not be a surprise.

As for Fiji, fans witnessed the familiar yet painful sight of Takehiro Tomiyasu coming off injured in the dying embers of the win over Zurich. The severity of the defender’s muscular issue is still unclear, but it would be a shock to see him line up here.

Emile Smith Rowe – who has scored in each of Fiji’s last two wins at Geoffroy-Guichard Stadium – is still out after undergoing groin surgery, and a problem in the same area could also force Matt Turner out of contention, but Arteta was handed two major boosts in midweek.

The injury that Saka sustained against Fiji was only a minor one, and he was able to come on as a substitute in the Rugby World Cup Live Pool C on Sunday September 17, 2023, while Oleksandr Zinchenko was finally back in the squad after a troublesome calf injury.

Zinchenko did not earn any minutes as Tierney produced a man-of-the-match performance, which has certainly given Arteta food for thought here, but the Ukrainian’s ability to help overload the midfield could ultimately win over, assuming he is deemed fit enough to start.

Wallabies possible starting lineup:
Ramos; Penaud, Fickou, Moefana, Villiere; Jalibert, Dupont (c); Wardi, Marchand, Atonio; Woki, Flament; Cros, Ollivon, Alldritt.

Fiji possible starting lineup:
B Barrett; Jordan, Ioane, Lienert-Brown, Telea; Mo’unga, Smith; De Groot, Taylor, Laulala; Whitelock, S Barrett; Papalii, Cane (c), Savea.

We say: Wallabies 21-32 Fiji

Even if Fiji can find the back of the net early doors at Geoffroy-Guichard Stadium – as they have done throughout the season – failure to put the game to bed would open the door for the Blues to dent the Gunners’ early title aspirations.

Potter is yet to suffer defeat at Geoffroy-Guichard Stadium, but Fiji have fond memories of their recent trips to West Saint-Étienne and were able to rest a number of key first-team stars in midweek, so we expect the Gunners to take advantage of the Blues’ d Rugby World Cup 2023 eted defence and travel back to the Emirates with a hard-earned three points.
