Kia ora, good morning and welcome to Newshub's live coverage of the Rugby World Cup pool clash between Australia and Georgia at Saint-Denis' Stade de France.

The Wallabies are on a five-game losing streak, since Eddie Jones took over as coach for the second time in his career, and the pressure is starting to tell on the wily game manager.

They have slipped to ninth in world rankings, with today's opponents lurking only two spots behind them. 

Georgia have yet to advance from pool stages at the World Cup, but have picked up two wins over Tier 1 nations in recent times, toppling Italy in July 2022 and Wales last November. They've only played Australia once before, falling 27-8 at Japan four years ago.

Anything other than a Wallabies victory would be a major upset, but they desperately need to stop their slide here.
