Wales v Argentina Preview

Wales’ Form

Wales’ 2023 Rugby World Cup Results

Wales 32-26 Fiji | Pool C, September 10th

Wales 28-8 Portugal | Pool C, September 16th

Wales 40-6 Australia | Pool C, September 24th

Wales 43-19 Georgia | Pool C, October 7th

2023 Rugby World Cup Form

Wales opened their Rugby World Cup campaign with an opening weekend thrilling 32-26 victory against Fiji. However, had it not been for a Fijian fumble in the 81st minute they may have lost the game if the proceeding kick had been converted.

In their second Pool Game, they beat Portugal 28-8 and that was followed by a brilliant 40-06 victory against Australia.

They concluded their Pool Stage campaign with a 43-19 victory over Georgia to confirm their qualification to the Quarter-Final stage as Pool C winners, winning four from four matches.

Form Coming Into The Rugby World Cup

World Number 10 Wales are making their tenth World Cup appearance, with their best-ever finish coming when they finished third in 1987.

At the most recent World Cup, they won their Pool which ironically included Australia, Fiji and Georgie, with Uruguay being the other side.

Wales won their Quarter-Final 20-19 against France before a narrow 16-19 defeat in the Semi-Final against eventual winners South Africa sent them to the Third playoff, which they lost 40-17 to New Zealand.

Head Coach Warren Gatland is amidst his second spell in charge of the nation, after replacing Wayne Pivac with the coaching cycle coming full circle. Depending on performance at this competition he has an option of a four-year contract.

Gatland started his second tenure poorly though, in the 2023 Six Nations, winning one game against Italy and losing their other four.

Their warm-ups started well with a 20-9 win over England. However, the wheels fell off in their final two warm-up games losing 19-17 to England and 16-52 to South Africa.

Argentina’s Form

Argentina’s 2023 Rugby World Cup Results

England 27-10 Argentina | Pool D, September 9th

Argentina 19-10 Samoa | Pool D, September 22nd

Argentina 59-5 Chile | Pool D, September 30th

Japan 27-39 Argentina | Pool D, October 8th

2023 Rugby World Cup Form

Argentina opened their Rugby World Cup campaign with a disappointing 27-10 defeat against England.

That was followed by a 19-10 win over Samoa and a 59-5 victory over Chile to put themselves into qualifying contention for a last-pool showdown against Japan.

In a dramatic game, they confirmed their qualification as Pool D runner-up with a 27-39 win over Japan the weekend.

Form Coming Into The Rugby World Cup

World Number 9 Argentina are making their tenth World Cup appearance in September, with their best-ever finish being third place in 2007.

Argentina have been indifferent in 2023 in terms of results with two wins from six matches but that doesn’t tell the full story.

Argentina opened their 2023 Rugby Championship campaign losing their opening game 12-41 to New Zealand but a week later they earned a well-fought narrow victory 31-34 against Australia.

They ended their tournament with a narrow 22-21 loss against South Africa.

Although their World Cup warm-ups started a week later when they were again beaten by South Africa this time 13-24 their final game in advance of the tournament was a 3-62 win against Spain.

Key Players To Watch

Liam Williams

The Welsh full-back has played the full match for his nation in their 32-26 win over Fiji and was rested for the game against Portugal before playing the full match against Australia again.

He got his first tournament try against Georgia in their final Pool Game and that could be the confidence-building performance he needed.

Emiliano Boffelli

A man who entered the tournament as one of the favourites to be the Top-Scorer at the 2023 Rugby World Cup, is Argentinian winger/full-back Emiliano Boffelli (28) who entered the tournament having scored 273 points for his country in 53 caps.

Against England, he made 1/1 conversion and 1/2 penalty attempts. Against Samoa, he scored a try, 1/1 conversions and 3/4 penalties in their 19-10 win before being rested for their victory against Chile.

He played a major role in their win against Japan, scoring a try, making 3/4 conversions and 1/2 penalties. One to watch again against Wales

Wales v Argentina Prediction & Best Bet

Prediction: Wales 17-25 Argentina

This looks set to be a tight tie; Wales have won every game of the tournament so far (albeit being fortunate against Fiji). They’ve put their poor form coming into this tournament behind them and now have a big chance of reaching a World Cup Semi-Final.

Lots was expected of Argentina before the tournament, but they’ve flattered to deceive thus far in the tournament. I think they could turn up in this one and turn Wales over.

Best Bet: Argentina -7 @ 3/1
