AWJ not looking like he thinks this will be easy.
A confusing penalty brings Wales all the way back to their own 22 for a Fijian scrum. Tuisova keeps Adams off and smashes through Navidi and Biggar for a try in the corner. Conversion misses, 0-5
This is going to be a spirited game. Fiji respond to the response and they too appear to score but another forward pass disallows.
TMO then heads to a foul play review agains the Sherriff of Carmarthen who accidentally tipped Mata.
Garces disagrees with me on the accidental part. Ken is off for 10. So far this is all Fiji.
Try Fiji! 0-10 (no conversion) and Fiji capitalise on being a man up with a similar play to their previous try, long wide ball to the right.
Dan Biggar calls an un-nneded mark which then allows Wales to wind down 30 seconds as the forwards have to jog it back. Dan finds touch and it's red scrum on the halfway. Fiji have had 80% possession in the first 15 minutes.
Fiji is all over the ground, Mata reads a pass and hammers Parkes who loses forward. We're back for a penalty but in the meantime TMO wants another word... this time it's a Fijian player shoulder charge in the cleanout.
It's another yellow, this time Cavubati for the clean-out.
Garces calls the captains, he is not happy having handed out two yellows in 16 minutes.
Wales kick the penalty to touch, win the lineout, and it's classic Wales, pick and go to the right, drag the defense over then chip kick left. Josh Adams performs and it's a try for Wales. Biggar finds the sweet spot and it's 7-10 and now Fiji are a man down. Swings and roundabouts so far.
Some fantastic play from both sides, lots of hands, lots of movement, ball everywhere. AWJ still seems to be being singled out for a smack whenever the opportunity presents. Wales on strong form in their attack now, and it's penalty scrum on the Fiji 22.
Another yellow sends Kunatani to the sin-bin as Garces points out Fiji have conceded four penalties back to back. Wales still hammering away at the line.
The forwards drag all the white to the middle and Wales has numbers wide left. Davies to Adams and it's a clean try, Biggar converts. 14-10
Welsh composure and discipline starting to show, great defensive tackles and solid spacing. Line speed itself seems a little slow to me, but it's a solid defense with no penalties given. Fiji eventually forward pass and the Fijian phases are over.
That's the half. Fiji have a penalty but opt to kick it to touch and walk off, everyone's looking tired. This may all come down to fitness and bench depth. If nothing else, entertaining first 40 minutes. Josh Adams is going to be inspecting his boots for chalk on those two touchline calls. I still have concerns about the amount of hanky panky being dished out to both AWJ and Owens, but the officials either haven's seen it or they have a different view. ANyone's game. #WALvFIJ #rwc2019 #rugby
We are underway in the second half. Two errors from Fiji in the first few minutes but both teams look refreshed and ready for battle. Fiji spends some time throwing more pressure on, but Parkes and Ball doing some impressive work.
Garces digging for a yellow, telling James Davies he's killing momentum. Wales down to 14 for 10.
Penalty try for Fiji 14-17. Dan Biggar offering a lot of advice but Garces not interested.
Wales caught scrambling all over to lock down a wide ranging Fiji attack, leading to a high ball covered by Williams and Biggar. Liam clocks Dan something awful as they collide mid-air and Dan's on the ground cold-cocked. A few very worrying minutes but Biggar stands up to thunderous applause from the crowd as he retakes the field.
Biggar walks off under his own steam, Patchell on just in time for a penalty kick.
Patchell takes the three, all wrapped up at 17-17 with 22 minutes to go. Wales still down one man.
Try number three for Josh Adams as Wales thunder down the left and Jonathan Davies sets Adams up with a gorgeous break and a sneaky little offload. Lovely stuff. Patchell lines up with Neil Jenkins looking on, and just clips th epost, so we are at 22-17
Good grief so much action, bodies everywhere, getting breathless. Replacements starting to roll on to the field. Flying Fijian back line is swarming all over, unstoppable in breaks unless Wales contributes three red shirts to the cause. Wales still showing calm, composed defense, carefully watching for their opportunities.
Scrubby ball back and forth and Fiji box kicks with no real follow through. Gareth Davies notices and flies through a gap to set up Liam Williams for the bonus point try. Patchell converts no probs, 29-17.
WALvFIJ Final Score
🏴 29-17 🇫🇯 Massive exhale as the whistle follows the gong and it's all over at Oita Stadium. This match had a bit of everything for everyone, high speed physical entertainment galore. Fiji throwing everything in the mix and bringing their offload and quick hands to bear, but not quite finding the form they needed to repeat 2007. Wales will be nursing more than a few injuries turning around for Uruguay. #rwc2019 #WALvFIJ
