RWC Rewind: Fiji 0-66 Wales

Wales take on Fiji today in a crucial World Cup game on the back of stunning England in Twickenham.

The last time these sides met in a World Cup was as recent as 2011 and Warren Gatland will be hoping for a repeat of that triumph.

Jamie Roberts and Huw Bennett celebrate the centre's try

Back in 2011 Wales secured a World Cup quarter-final clash against Ireland with an emphatic win over Fiji in Hamilton.

Warren Gatland’s side secured the bonus point by half-time through tries by Jamie Roberts, Scott Williams, George North and Sam Warburton.

Roberts went over again after the break with Lloyd Burns, Leigh Halfpenny, Lloyd Williams and Jonathan Davies following him.

Rhys Priestland and Stephen Jones converted all the tries between them.

This is the third successive RWC that the two sides have met in the Group Stage. In 2007 Fiji shocked Wales with a 34-38 win.
