Rugby Union - World Cup 2011 : Australia vs USA 12BET 9/23 4:30PM GMT+8

In normal circumstances, it would seem a mismatch. Two-time Rugby World Cup champion Australia up against the 17th-ranked USA boasting a 6-0 record stretching back 99 years.
Two of those wins have been at the World Cup, the Wallabies winning 47-12 at Brisbane in 1987 and 55-19 at Limerick, Ireland, in 1999.
With Australia unable to afford another defeat, coach Robbie Deans is taking nothing for granted against the American Eagles.

Reserves: Stephen Moore, Sekope Kepu, Dan Vickerman, Radike Samo, Luke Burgess, Berrick Barnes, Pat McCabe.
