Wales Cruises into Rugby World Cup Quarters with 29-17 Win over Fiji

OITA, Japan – Wales has secured a place in the quarterfinals of the Rugby World Cup in Japan with a 29-17 win over Fiji.

Wales had to suffer and went through some moments of uncertainty during the game at Oita Bank Dome stadium on Wednesday.

It was Fiji that opened the scoring with two successful tries in a row by Josua Tuisova and Kini Murimurivalu respectively, making the score 10-0 by the eighth minute.

It was hard for Wales to react, but the team finally managed to get on the scoreboard thanks to Josh Adams’s two tries and Dan Biggar’s two conversions, giving the team a 14-10 advantage after half an hour.

In the second half, Fiji returned to scoring again with a penalty try to regain the lead in the 53rd minute.

Wales substitute Rhys Patchell then converted a penalty four minutes later to draw level at 17-17.

Welsh players Adams and Liam Williams scored one try each and then their teammate Patchell delivered a penalty to seal the 29-17 win at the end of the game.

With this result, Wales bagged 14 points out of three wins, while still having a match in hand, putting the team at the top of Group D with a three-point advantage ahead of second-placed Australia after three games.

Third-place Fiji has been eliminated from the tournament, along with Georgia and Uruguay, which are in fourth and fifth places, respectively.
