Rugby World Cup 2019 -Wales v Fiji 09.10.2019
|Match ->||Wales vs Fiji|
|Date & Kick Off ->||Wednesday October 9, 2019 10.45am|
|Where ->||Oita Stadium, Oita|
Wales have the opportunity to go to the top of the Pool D on Wednesday when they take on Fiji. Win and they seal their place in the knockout stage, lose and Fiji will move above them and leave the pool with it all to play for on the final round of matches.
Wales are heavy favourites though at 1/10 and it’ll be a huge upset if Fiji get anything, having already lost to bottom side Uruguay and Australia.
Warren Gatland has made a number of changes to his side, including James Davies and Ross Moriaty who come into the back row.
Dan Biggar makes the side at fly half after recovering from an injury against Australia.
Fiji make just one change from their victory over Georgia with Viliame Mata coming in at number eight.
Wales will make two changes against Fiji ?https://t.co/9WzhrUDDzg— BBC Wales News (@BBCWalesNews) October 7, 2019
Key Battle to Look Out For
Wales will be desperate to finish top of Pool D and George North and Josh Adams the two that will cause the most problems for Fiji. Both are priced at 7/1 with Paddy Power to score the first try, with North our top tip for the fixture.
If they can dictate the tempo then they have every chance of making it a comfortable route into the knockout stages.
Fiji do have players to cause problems and even if they don’t qualify, finishing third and qualifying for 2023 is high on the list of priorities.
Semi Radradra will be one Wales will have to be aware of as he battled hard against Georgia, scoring two tries and making three. Stop him and Wales will be well on their way to victory.
3 - Semi Radradra has become the first player at #RWC2019 to make three try assists in a single game, the joint-most ever by a @FijiRugby player in a World Cup game. Excellent.#GEOvFIJ pic.twitter.com/2okjDf24ct— OptaJason (@OptaJason) October 3, 2019
