This is a SCRUM. The term Scrum Master is also used in Agile Management.

This player is scoring a TRY, in other words he is placing the ball over his team’s scoring line. For a successful try the team is awarded 5 points.

England v Australia rugby quiz

The postponement of the England and France game could be a blow to the former's chances as they head into the quarter-finals potentially undercooked. England have not really been challenged so far in this World cup, with the greatest respect to the teams that they have already played.

That said, the Australians looked poor for most of the pool stage and with six losses in a row against England, they face an uphill task to progress. 

England will certainly fancy their chances in this one but must get off to a strong start which will knock the confidence of the Aussies and allow them to prevail.

All will be seen in the quarter final match on Saturday 19 October.

For now, let's see how much you know about this N°1 of sporting rivalry matches.
