Prince Harry has been meeting students on a 'rugby empowerment into employment' programme at Sandy Park. He's also been visiting to watch the match - seeing Georgia beat Namibia by 1 point.

The prince has said he isn't switching his Rugby World Cup allegiance to Wales. When asked at Exeter if he'll now support Wales like his brother, he laughed - saying there are lots of teams to support.
