All the latest news from the Rugby World Cup on the last day before the knockout stage begins.
Australia will be without two of their biggest stars for their quarter-final clash against Scotland.
David Pocock and Israel Folau have been ruled out of Monday morning's game with calf and ankle injuries respectively.
Ben McCalman will replace Pocock at No. 8 and Kurtley Beale is in for Folau at fullback.
Despite the injury setback, Australia should still have too much class for a Scottish side which are the biggest outsiders to advance to the semi-finals.

Scotland have also been forced into making changes for their side to contest the quarter-final.
Two suspensions have caused changes in the forward pack, with hooker Ross Ford and lock Jonny Gray looking to appeal their three-week bans for a dangerous tackle.
Centre Matt Scott has succumbed to a back problem, being replaced by Pete Horne, while Kiwi-born Blair Cowan also gets a start.
There are three Kiwi-born players in the starting XV, with winger Sean Maitland and flanker John Hardie also starting, while two former South Africans also make the 22 - prop WP Nel and former Lions skipper Josh Strauss.
France captain Thierry Dusautoir has rubbished reports that the French players have tuned out coach Philippe Saint-Andre.
The reports of the players overthrowing Saint-Andre came just days before tomorrow morning's big quarterfinal clash against the All Blacks.
However, Dusautoir insisted that "Since the start of the World Cup, the players and staff have been together and they will work together until the end of the World Cup".
Although he surely couldn't have said anything else at the press conference, Dusautoir's comments have added more intrigue to the already-captivating quarter-final matchup.
Ireland will be missing their captain and 108-test locking legend for the rest of their World Cup campaign, but Paul O'Connell is keeping everyone posted on how his injury is progressing.
The 35-year old underwent an operation on his damaged hamstring, posting a picture of his surgical pants on Instagram.
"The underwear has been the highlight of the operation so far," quipped the crocked captain.
The 2011 World Cup produced four close quarter-finals, and there are questions over whether 2015 will provide more of the same.
Australia's 11-9 win over South Africa was the closest of the bunch four years ago, while France's 19-12 edging of England and Wales' 22-10 triumph over Ireland were also tightly fought.
The All Blacks' 33-10 victory against Argentina was the only game which could be considered comprehensive, but even that clash was tight at 12-10 after 50 minutes before Piri Weepu's boot and two late tries put the contest to bed.
Will it be similarly tight come Sunday and Monday morning? See what our Herald experts have to say.
