After a first leg that gave us a mudbath of a pitch, a power cut, and one of the greatest individual tries you'll ever see from Chile's Rodrigo Fernandez, anticipation is sky-high for this pivotal clash at Infinity Park.

The winning team will secure their place alongside England, Japan, Argentina and Samoa in Pool D at the World Cup, while the losing team will have to slug it out with Kenya, Portugal and either Hong Kong or Tonga in another grueling chapter of the qualification process. They'll be battling for a spot in Group C alongside Australia, Wales, Fiji and Georgia.
