Jac Morgan, a standout player in the back row who was selected to start against Australia in an exciting Pool C match on Sunday in Lyon, will lead Wales once more.

A victory is essential since the competition is extremely tight, and the group standings are still uncertain. Jac Morgan will have veteran number eight Taulupe Faletau and Aaron Wainwright on the blindside flank alongside him in the back row.

While hooker Ryan Elias is joined at the front by props Tomas Francis and Gareth Thomas, the hardworking Will Rowlands begins in the second row with Adam Beard, who earns his 50th cap.

Conflict on the Horizon

With such high stakes, head coach Warren Gatland is expecting a thrilling matchup against the Wallabies.

“We’re happy with our position going into this game. We have two wins and ten points. There’s a confidence among this group, and we’ve had a good edge to training this week,” he said.

“Everyone wants to be involved, and there were some disappointed players this week, which is exactly what we want with competition strong across the squad.

“Every game in the World Cup is tough, the stakes are high, and this will be no different. Australia have talented players, and we know they will want to come out and put in a performance this weekend.

“Our accuracy was good against Fiji, but it was not at the level we would like against Portugal. We are looking to get better every week. Against Australia, we know we have to take our chances and put them under as much pressure as possible.”
