Winger Josh Adams grabbed a hat-trick of tries as a battered and bruised Wales battled to a 29-17 bonus-point win over Fiji to book their place in the Rugby World Cup quarter-finals.

In a frenzied clash under the roof at Oita Stadium, Warren Gatland’s team lost talismanic flyhalf Dan Biggar to a head injury for a second time in the tournament shortly after the Fijians surged into the lead early in the second half of the Pool D clash.

A penalty try to Fiji produced a huge scare for Welsh fans who hold bitter memories of the ‘Nightmare in Nantes’ when the Pacific islanders knocked them out of the 2007 World Cup.
