The quarter-final match-ups at the Rugby World Cup are set following the final pool match of the tournament on Sunday night.

Ireland beat Italy 36-6 in the final match of the pool phase of the Rugby World Cup in Dunedin.

This means Ireland will meet Wales in the tournament's first quarter-final match in Wellington next Saturday, followed by England against France in Auckland.

On Sunday, South Africa and Australia meet in Wellington.

The quarter-finals weekend wraps up with the All Blacks taking on Argentina at Auckland's Eden Park.

England rugby coach Martin Johnson says none of the teams can be underestimated.
