Wales head into their penultimate Pool D match with Fiji knowing a victory will see them through to the Rugby World Cup quarter finals.
Warren Gatland’s side will be full of confidence after edging out a resilient Australia side in their last outing. A result that puts the Dragons in the driving seat to secure top spot in the group and more importantly a slightly more favourable route to the final.
This will be Fiji’s final group game, and while a victory would keep them in the mix for qualification, they’ll be reliant on other results going their way. Therefore their chances of reaching the knockout stages are slim at best.
James Davies and Ross Moriarty both start in place of Justin Tipuric and Aaron Wainwright. Other than that, it’s the same starting XV that faced Australia in Tokyo.
George North and Dan Biggar have both been instrumental in Wales’ success so far in Japan. The pair have been at the heart of Wales’ attacking play and North is 15/2 to score the first try.
Wales are unbeaten against Fiji under Gatland and it will be a huge upset if they were to lose on Wednesday. Fiji’s last victory over the Welsh was recorded back in 2007, with a famous 38-34 victory. The islanders are 7/1 to win by 1-10 points.
The last meeting between the two sides saw Wales win 23-13 and it’s 4/11 for Wales -8 on the handicap betting.
It’s no surprise to see the second best team in the world, Wales, as massive 1/9 favourites, while Fiji are 8/1 to record another famous win over the Six Nations Champions.
