Wales’ player Gareth Thomas expresses views on the upcoming match, saying it would be an amazing feeling to beat Australia. The win over Australia could get Wales placed in the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals. 

The Wallabies vs. Wales match is set to take place on 25 September. The winning team will get a qualifying spot from Pool C.

Wales has earned itself a record of never failing to reach the knock-out stage since the last four World Cup campaigns, the credit going to their head coach, Warren Gatland. The team is likely to face England or Argentina as their last eight opponents in Marseille next month. 

The team will then be going on a break from next week before their match with Georgia scheduled for the 7th of October in Nantes. 

Thomas, on the team’s condition

The Wales prop has confessed that since the team came here, they always wanted to win all the games in the group, and nothing has changed since. The team still has the same mindset. They want to go out there and perform and get the win.

Thomas further talked about how amazing it would feel to get their third win. The team doesn’t want anything but that. They are looking forward to this weekend, and then they will be taking a couple of days to recover after that. 

Wales has already occupied the box seat, but Australia needs to score itself a win in order to get away from a pool that includes teams like Georgia, Fiji, and Portugal. 

The Australia and Fiji match held on 17th September in Saint-Etienne has brought the Wallabies much shame. With a 22-15 defeat to Fiji, Australia showed off their worst performance in all their nine World Cup campaigns. The defeat lost the coach so disappointed that the team is now planning to drop their young player Carter Gordon.

However, Australia still holds the record of defeating Wales in 5 out of a total of 7 games. But the team has lost its spirits lately, and they may not be able to have the same force with the players Taniela Tupou and Will Skelton missing the match due to an injury.

Thomas accepts that the Australian team will always be dangerous when they play against them. But the team has come with the mindset of winning all the pool games, and nothing has changed that for them. Wales is unhinged by the wins and defeats of the Wallabies, as that won’t change their gameplay against the team. 

The player said that the team has gained much confidence from the Fiji game and Portugal game, and they believe in the practice they did all summer, which puts them in the spirit of getting better. 

Thomas admits that it is going to be a big and physical contest, but the team is looking forward to getting out there. The player confessed that it doesn’t make any difference to him if the two injured Wallabies players stay out of the match or not.

The team’s assistant coach, Alex King, has called the squad a “band of brothers,” while Thomas has said that he feels something special about every game in the World Cup, so they are watching them and just enjoying the big buzz that surrounds them. 

So it seems that Australia will be facing Wales while the team is in such high spirits. The fans are excited to watch the match go down as the two teams compete on the 25th of September.
