Rugby World Cup breaking news live as Owen Farrell incident results in Argentina red card and Japan claim bonus point win

Alfie’s wish

Gareth “Alfie” Thomas says he wants to see Wales stay away from England’s side of the World Cup draw.

The former Lions captain sees Eddie Jones team as a big threat with great strength in depth.

If Wales and England both win their pools – which they are on course to do – they wouldn’t be able to meet until the final

And that’s what ex-Welsh skipper Thomas wants to see happen

“People talked about Wales wanting to avoid New Zealand’s side of the draw,” he said, speaking on ITV

“But, for me, I want them to avoid England’s side.

“They are such a big threat. They have got so much ammunition to deliver and so much strength in depth.”

On Wales, Thomas said: “They are going really well. “They are going under the radar and doing what they need to do.

“They are almost guaranteed a quarter-final.”
