Sam Warburton and Andy Goode answer your Rugby World Cup questions
They kicked off their Rugby World Cup campaign with a strong performance against Namibia and Kieran Crowley’s side will have their sights set on the quarter-finals should they be victorious in Nice this afternoon.
Los Teros, meanwhile, pushed France much closer than expected in their first Pool A fixture, eventually falling to a 27-12 defeat, but will have enough confidence to back up that performance after a six-day turnaround.
This match is set to be a close and exciting affair and could set Italy up as favourites to progress should they also secure another bonus point.

Full-time! Italy 38-17 Uruguay, 80 minutes
There goes the final whistle! Italy rescue themselves after a woeful first half which saw Uruguay take advantage after Kieran Crowley’s men had two men sin binned.

Still, that’s for the future. Right now they’ll be celebrating a fine win in Nice.

The match against France would have been hard work and they look like they’ve run out of gas.
