London – During last week 12 games have been played for the Rugby World Cup 2015 that is held in England, 3 matches per pool.

In the Pool A Australia has won two matches in four days, the first has been a good 28-13 against Fiji in a really equilibrated match.

Then the Australian team humiliated Uruguay with an incredible 65-3 in a match completely dominated by the Wallabies.

The other match has been the derby between England and Wales at Twickenham Stadium where the Welsh team has won 28-25 in a match where the Welsh fly-half Dan Biggar and the English fly-half Owen Farrell almost made all the points of the game.

In the Pool B Scotland beat both Japan and the United States without suffering a lot: it won 45-10 against the Nipponic team and 39-16 against the American team scoring in both games 5 tries and 4 conversions and conceding to the opposite teams only 1 try and 1 conversation.

The difference of points has been made by free-kicks. The other match has been a stunning 46-6 for South Africa against Samoa with the Samoan team that failed to score a try.

In the Pool C Namibia played two matches like Australia and Scotland but lost both. The first match has been against the All Blacks when they only tried to stop one of the bookies’ favorite losing 58-14 and have done something better against Tonga in a match finished 35-21 with the first half dominated by the Tongans and the second half almost equilibrated.

In the same pool Argentina has demolished Georgia winning 54-9 and all the points scored by the Georgian team arrived by three free-kick scored by Kvirikashvili.
In the Pool D Italy won 23-18 against Canada in a match that has brought Mauro Bergamasco in the books of rugby history.

In fact the Italian flanker is the second player (the first has been the Samoan Brian Lima) to play in five different world cup editions.

The other two matches has been two bad losses for Romania, the first against France for 38-11 and the second against Ireland for 44-10.

At the moment the Italian team is third in his group, this means that would not pass to the knockout stage but will be automatically qualified to the next world cup.
