Italy take on Canada in the 2019 Rugby World Cup at the Fukuoka Hakatanomori Stadium on Wednesday. Canada will make its entrance into the 2019 Rugby World Cup. They will take on Italy in Group B action. The Italians have already recorded a major win, getting a bonus point triumph over outsiders Namibia. This intense group which likewise houses New Zealand and South Africa.

In a Rugby World Cup group containing three-time champion New Zealand and two-time victor South Africa, the sensible alternative for Italy is third place.

A success for Conor O’Shea’s side over Canada on Thursday at Fukuoka Hakatanomori Stadium would go some approach to securing that, given the Italians beat Namibia 47-22 last Sunday.

O’Shea has redone his team for the Pool B game, making 10 improvements to the side that ran out throughout the end of the week, with Dean Budd deputizing for captain Sergio Parisse after the decision was made to give him a rest.

Fly-half Tommaso Allan and hooker Luca Bigi will begin consecutive games within five days in similar positions, while Jayden Hayward will change from full-back to make his first start in the midfield for Italy.

Canada’s players have waited a long time for their first World Cup match — which comes six days after the competition began.

The Azzurri fell behind in the beginning times of the game however roared back to win 47-22 of every a certainty boosting triumph to get off the mark.

Canada start their competition as one of the lowest-ranked teams in the competition, however, will cheer up from Namibia’s lively show against Italy, in spite of at last failing to secure any points from the game.

Italy didn’t intrigue against an extraordinarily frail Namibian team in their RWC opener. Regardless of the 47-22 triumph they permitted Namibia in for three attempts and battled to control the game.

That game was just a few days prior which will probably mean top players should be rested for this conflict, their last possibility with South Africa and New Zealand on the horizon. Stalwart Sergio Parisse will more likely than not sit out while there could be up to nine different changes.

It is a match Italy will legitimately hope to win yet the World Cup only occasionally passes by without a major shock. Their defensive frailties against Namibia will worry about Canada coming to town.

In any case, the Italians are outright top picks at 1.05 yet don’t be excessively astonished if Canada push them the whole distance.

Canadian rugby is a far route away from what they were in the mid-90s after making the 1991 Rugby World Cup quarter-finals. Their last match finished in a 20-15 misfortune to the USA at BC Place in Vancouver.

What we can be sure of is that Canada frequently spare their best performances for the World Cup. Their match late in the competition against Namibia will be the one they will feel is an unquestionable requirement win however this is their lone genuine chance of a furious.

On the off chance that that resentful is to come key player and captain Tyler Ardron should lead his team by example. He is by some separation their most talented player and plays Super Rugby for the Chiefs – the first Canadian to play in the competition.
