ITV will broadcast a triple-header of Rugby World Cup 2023 coverage on Saturday as the home nations play their final Pool games.

It starts at 1.15pm on ITV1 and ITV1 HD as Wales take on Georgia at Stade de la Beaujoire in Nantes, France.

Wales were the first team to book their place in the quarter-finals after maintaining their 100 per cent record with an outstanding 40-6 victory over Australia and they will now be looking to end the pool stage on a high against the Georgians even if Warren Gatland decides to rest some players.

David Flatman will front the coverage alongside Sam Warburton, Gareth Thomas and Maggie Alphonsi.

Match commentary comes from Martin Gillingham, Shane Williams and Jamie Roberts, with reports from Gabriel Clarke.

Kick-off 2.00pm.

England then take on Samoa from 4.15pm as both teams play their final match in Pool D at Stade Pierre-Mauroy in Lille, France.

England go into this match with a 100 percent record in the pool, having defeated Argentina, Japan and Chile, and have won all eight of their previous meetings against the Samoans.

They will expect to go into the next round on a high, but Samoa will be determined to go out with a spirited display should this prove to be their last match in this year’s tournament.

Mark Pougatch will be joined in the studio by Clive Woodward, Lawrence Dallaglio and Jonny Wilkinson.

Match commentary comes from Nick Mullins, Ben Kay and Ugo Monye.

Kick-off 4.45pm.

Ireland went into the tournament with high hopes and they lived up to the hype in their last match with a hard-fought 13-8 victory over holders South Africa.

The Scots got off to a bad start when they lost their opener to the South Africans, but a win may give them a chance of progressing.

Mark Pougatch will also front coverage of this one but in the comapny of Brian O’Driscoll, John Barclay, Ian McGeechan and Rory Best.

Match commentary comes from Miles Harrison, Scott Hastings and Gordon D’Arcy.

Kick-off 8.00pm.
