    I think you'd also need Radradra and maybe Mata to really stand a chance of winning it...;)

    Flopping on top of rucks has proven more valuable than being the best ball runners in the world.

    The amount of BS around the breakdown in this game is staggering.

    They're more containable, if they break the line they'll score more often than not unlike Fiji but it's the numerous ridiculous athletes that's getting through Wales.

    Don't think Wales can beat NZ though, it'd be similar to the SA game.

    Yeah, he's crazy, it's just that Fiji have about 6 of him!

    Garces and (especially) Skeen must surely be gone from reffing any knockout games right? Imagine the controversy these two clowns would create in a close(r) match.

    3rded Ireland need that element of creativity to become real contenders

    If there was a breakdown Fiji win that game.

    Fun game,
    Big hits, few tries, entertaining stuff.
    Wales did enough to kill quick ball at the breakdown, and before Biggar went off they controlled the territory well with his kicking.
    Fiji got a bit more ragged as the game went on, that's when Wales sealed it by capitalising on the poor defence

    Fair play to Wales for dealing with that firestorm. Got absolutely run ragged. Played to the (awful) ref the best as well.

    Good game to watch. Wales are going to be hurting for a few days lol. I hope this is the last we see of Garces and skeen.

    Probably the most entertaining game I've watched so far, probably the biggest contrast of styles you're going to get in rugby.

    So moral of the story: forget about running the ball, passing, creating chances. Just flop on the ruck and be offside 75% of the match and it's in the bag.

    Gosh there's some sour grapes in here. Both teams played well and Wales deserved the win.

    Some extremely boring people who have never made a positive post in their life are complaining about the referee.

    Shocking.

    Without Davies at 13 and williams at 15 Wales would be waaaay worse. Thought both were very good and Davies is such a good defensive marshal. Radrada had an incredible WC and he is great to watch. Fiji have so much potential. Now we all wait for Eng France...

    Although since 2015 it is against NZ only that wales have had such poor tackle completion stats...
