Whilst this weekend is mostly about the Lions’ 1st Test in New Zealand, there are still other International matches going on around the world.
Samoa v Wales
Samoa actually looked ok in the first quarter of their match against the All Blacks, before being blown away later in the game. Wales should beat them, but it will be closer than 78 points. Wales by 18.
Fiji v Scotland
This will be a different challenge for the Scots after last week’s heroics against Australia. There’s no Finn Russell for a start, and whilst I think they’ll win the game, it could get quite close. Scotland by 8.
Australia v Italy
I think the Wallabies could cut loose in this one after their defeat last week, and they should be significantly better with a couple of matches under their belts. Australia by 28.
Japan v Ireland
Ireland won last week’s meeting by 28 points, so will it be more or less than that? They scored 50 but conceded 22, so if they tighten up their defence, it could be a bigger margin. Ireland by 33.
South Africa v France
The French have been a let down in this series, losing the first two Tests by 23 and 22 points respectively. Can they make it a bit closer? South Africa by 21.
Argentina v Georgia
This should be a home win for the Pumas, with the margin depending on how much they change things up after their 2-Test series with England. Argentina by 16.
