Wales have survived a spirited fight from Fiji to win 29-17 in their final Rugby World Cup pool clash.

The bonus point win sees the Welsh move ahead of Australia to top Pool D and secure a quarter-final place against ​either England or France. The Flying Fijians take the plane home after going out in style.

If Warren Gatland wanted his men to have a challenge before the quarter finals, they got one on Wednesday. Wales had to battle back from 10-0 down after an early scare by Fiji.
