In a very open Group C, the Welsh took a big step towards the quarter-finals by winning against the Fijians (32-26) this Sunday in Bordeaux.
Lacking results and confidence during its last outings, Wales reured itself on Sunday by dominating Fiji (32-26), at Matmut Atlantique in Bordeaux, for its entry into the running in the World Cup. Picked cold from the start, the XV of Leek – under Prince William’s eyes – was able to raise his head and take the lead, scoring four tries by Adams (7th), North (29th), Rees-Zammit (48th) and Dee (66th). The Pacific players were also flattened four times by Waisea (13th), Tagitagivalu (17th) and Tuisova (73rd).
Next Saturday, the Welsh will challenge the modest Portuguese in Nice. While the Fijians, who won the offensive and defensive bonus points, will play their qualification for the quarter-finals against the Wallabies in Saint-Étienne on Sunday.
