Rugby World Cup 2019 Quarter-final Wales v France

By Chris Dinsdale

October 20, 2019 - Wales and France clash at the Oita Stadium in the third quarter-final of the 2019 Rugby World Cup. Both teams, familiar foes with a proud rugby heritage, are looking to win the World Cup for the first time. Wales may have the advantage, having won seven of their last eight Six Nations meetings with France since 2012.

The 2019 tournament marks the first time that the showpiece has been held in Asia, outside rugby’s traditional heartlands.

New Zealand’s third title in 2015 moved them ahead of their southern hemisphere rivals Australia and South Africa, who have each won the tournament twice.

The tournament now enters the knock-out stages, with the final scheduled to take place at the International Stadium in Yokohama on November 2, where the champions will be presented with the Webb Ellis Cup.
