Australia 37 – 23 Georgia

Eddie Jones’ young side arrive in Paris on the back of five straight defeats and having not having achieved a victory since November 2022. This is a shaky side, but one with youthful potential. The likes of Will Skelton as captain and Koroibete of the wing will be important players in a side looking for identity.
