when is it, how to watch

The Stade de Marseille is home to the Marseille football club. It hosted matches during the 2007 Rugby World Cup, in which it staged two quarter-finals, as well as the 1938 and 1998 FIFA World Cup finals. France played 13 rugby tests over place and also hosted the 2022 Champions Cup final.

What’s the latest news from the Wales team?

Dan Biggar and Liam Williams have been passed fit to start in Wales’ World Cup quarter-final against Argentina on Saturday.

Biggar is suffering from a chest injury and Williams was doubtful due to a knee problem, but they have been given the green light for the showdown at the Stade Vélodrome and start at fly-half and full-back respectively.

There is no place in the 23 for Gareth Anscombe, however, after he was forced to withdraw 45 minutes before kick-off against Georgia last Saturday with a groin problem.

Taulupe Faletau’s broken arm suffered in the 43-19 victory over the Georgians at the end of the World Cup has led to a reshuffle in the third tier.

Aaron Wainwright moves from blindside to fill the void at No.8 created by Faletau’s injury, while skipper Jac Morgan takes the No.6 jersey.

Tommy Reffell comes on to complete the final line adjustments against the Pumas.

XV of Wales: L Williams; Rees-Zammit, North, Tompkins, Adams; Biggar, G. Davies; G Thomas, Elias, Francis, Rowlands, Beard, Morgan (captain), Reffell, Wainwright.

Substitutes: Lake, Domachowski, D Lewis, D Jenkins, Tshiunza, T Williams, Costelow, Dyer.

What is the latest news from the Argentina team?

Argentina changed their attacking trio and brought back veteran scrum-half Tomas Cubelli in two changes from last weekend’s win over Japan.

Pablo Matera tore his hamstring during the 39-27 victory in Nantes that took Argentina to the round of 16, ending their participation in the tournament in France, and is replaced by Facundo Isa on the team. But Isa will play at number 8 against Wales, with Juan Martin Gonzalez moving to the open side in place of Matera for the Marseille clash.

Cubelli replaces Gonzalo Bertranou in an intriguing selection gamble, with Welshman Bertranou dropping out on matchday 23 and Lautaro Bazan Velez remaining a substitute scrum-half on the bench for a third consecutive match.

Argentine XV: Mallia; Boffelli, Cinti, Chocobares, M Carreras; S Carreras, Cubelli; Gallo, Montoya (captain), Gómez Kodela, Petti, Lavanini, Gonzalez, Kremer, Isa.

Substitutes: Creevy, Sclavi, Bello, Alemanno, Bruni, Bazan Velez, Sánchez, Moroni.
