Hosts Japan clash with rugby minnows Russia straight after the opening ceremony in the first game of Rugby World Cup 2019.

Although Russia has been an improving team in world rugby, Japan is expected to win easily. Japan will be under huge pressure though, so Russia will be keen to provide a banana skin for the hosts.
