Rugby World Cup 2023

Can you explain it for my smooth brain. The fuck is 5.20 red zone efficiencies?
I am guessing because that's all the info I'm going off too but...

5.20 points scored per entry in the 22m (or opposition's 10m line).

ie. Fiji can't defend their line for shit (or Wales are just so good at scoring).

So wouldnt that be bad for us?
It suggests Fiji are poor defenders because Wales aren't really known for their attack, or rather they haven't been for 40 years.

Even if it's a genuine stat and they are that good we don't have to worry about that this weekend.

Just did my tips for this week, pretty dull week. Aus v Fiji easily the match of the round. No doubt another good game or two will pop up but otherwise just a heap of likely thrashings.

Then played in a hockey grand final Monday night so I am still wrecked and it's only been week 1. Watching Ireland v the Boks and then having to drive 4 hours and set up camping site is going to be the most painful day of the cup.

Happy to give them 5am wake up calls too, but on Monday mornings not Sundays.

I know this is a bit off topic but what does everyone think the Wallabies would be like if they still had Izzy Folau in the mix
