When are England playing next in the Rugby World Cup?

The Rugby World Cup 2023 kicked off earlier this month in Paris when hosts France defeated powerhouse New Zealand in a thrilling opening match.

After defeating Canada and the United States in the Americas qualification, Chile made their tournament debut. Meanwhile, Wales triumphed in a hard-fought battle against Fiji.

Uruguay defeated Namibia in Lyon to earn their first Rugby World Cup pool victory and deny the African team its first tournament victory.

After outperforming France to deprive the hosts a bonus-point victory and leading at the half against Italy, Uruguay entered the match as the favourite.

The victory is Uruguay's fourth at a World Cup, and they will play New Zealand in their last pool game today.
