Wales v Argentina

“Warren Gatland and his side have a happy habit of stepping up when they need to. They have a fantastic pedigree of raising their level in the latter stages of this competition.

“Gatland will be reminding them of the opportunity in front of them. They have a very winnable game for a place in a World Cup semi-final.”

“Argentina looked better against Japan in their final Pool D game, but, up until that point, I thought they had lacked cohesion and rhythm.

“That game, coming a day later than Wales’ game against Georgia, won’t have helped them overall. It was a really intense one, with lots of running, open rugby in hot conditions in Nantes.

“I think it will be a really tough ask for them to turn over Wales.”

Dawson’s prediction – Wales victory
