WALES booked their quarter-final spot with a bruising bonus-point victory against Fiji.
Warren Gatland’s boys moved to the top of Pool D following a hard-fought 29-17 victory.
The team breathed a huge sigh of relief after a tough work-out by free-running Fiji, but victory came at a price with fly-half Dan Biggar, centre Jonathan Davies and hat-trick hero Josh Adams all forced off through injury.
Wing Adams scored twice in the first half and again in the second when his acrobatic finish following Jonathan Davies’s brilliant break proved decisive.
Wales had been stunned by two early Fiji touchdowns and the result hung in the balance until deep into the second half before Gatland’s side extended their 100 per cent record.
A final fixture against bottom side Uruguay is next up for Wales, who will face England or France in the last eight.
