Fiji Airways Flying Fijians winger Semi Radradra produced a man of the match performance as Fiji thrashed Georgia 45-10 to secure their first win of the Rugby World Cup.

Radradra scored two tries, provided three try assists and ran a massive 177 metres in the game.

Fiji is now second in Pool D with 7 points while Wales leads with 9 points.

It is important to note that Australia who are third with 6 points plays Uruguay on Saturday in their third game. 

The win also means Fiji is in contention for direct qualification for the 2023 Rugby World Cup.

Fiji still has a chance to qualify to the play-offs provided they beat Wales with a bonus point and stop Wales from getting any bonus point and hope that Wales loses to Uruguay or that Australia loses one of its two matches.

Fiji's tries were scored by Frank Lomani, Josua Tuisova, Semi Radradra, Api Ratuniyarawa, Waisea Nayacalevu and Semi Kunatani.

Fiji stepped up when it came to the scrum matching the Georgians as Fiji won 19 set pieces and had a 100% success rate in the scrum. 

Fiji will now play Wales in an all important match at 9.45 pm next Wednesday.
