Australia kick-off their 2015 Rugby World Cup campaign with clash against Fiji.

With both England and Wales having started their respective tournaments with bonus point wins, the Wallabies must feel that they need do the same.

Fiji, disappointed with their loss to England have nothing to be ashamed of as they pushed the tournaments hosts all the way in a tense opening clash.

The Wallabies double breakdown threat of David Pocock and Michael Hooper is sure to produce plenty of quick ball that can match the Fijians for exciting running on any day.

Nemani Nadolo is set to be one of the biggest stars of this World Cup, while the likes of Israel Folau and Matt Giteau are already amongst the biggest draw cards in the game.

Australia coach Michael Cheika has insisted his team will continue to play an exciting brgame, despite observation that conservative game plans are necessary to win at World Cups.

It's no surprise that Fiji are one of the most dangerous counter-attacking sides around, so today’s clash promises high excitement.

Players to watch out for:

For Australia

Another certain feat from Foley could sway Cheika to stick with the Waratahs man he has worked with during Super Rugby. 

For Fiji

Clermont flank Peceli Yato is a star of the future. He scored seven tries in just nine starts for his French club last season, earning a nation call-up for the first time as a result.
