How to watch Australia vs Uruguay 2019 Rugby World Cup game
With the Rugby World Cup in full swing, the Wallabies are gearing up for a critical match against Uruguay.
The game against Uruguay will be Australia's third during this edition of the Rugby World Cup. The Wallabies have won against Fiji 39-21 in their opening match of the tournament but were then narrowly defeated by Wales, 29-25. The encounter with Uruguay is a chance for the Aussies to return to their winning ways, especially since Wales is currently three points ahead with two wins so far.
Meanwhile, Los Teros enjoyed a surprisingly strong start at the tournament, defeating Fiji 30-27. They faced-off with Georgia next but weren't able to keep up their winning strike. The only previous meeting between Australia and Uruguay occurred during RWC 2015 in Birmingham, when the Wallabies won 65-3. Needless to say, the Wallabies are favourites to prevail this time as well.
