This bodes well for them going into their next pool game against Australia, which many believe could decide who wins pool D, with the winner able to avoid tougher opposition in the quarter finals (most likely England). 

Although there are now two places between Wales and Australia, their ranking scores are very close, making choosing the winner from their game a tough task. The ranking model favours Wales by the narrowest of margins.
