The Flying Fijians' last chance

The Flying Fijians' last chance

By Semi Turaga
Sunday 06/10/2019

The Fiji Airways Flying Fijians need to beat Wales next Wednesday to still have a chance of progressing in the Rugby World Cup in Japan.

It’s a straightforward path for Wales to the next stage — beat Fiji on Wednesday and they’re through.

If they lose, Wales, Fiji, Australia and even Georgia have a chance of progressing.

For Australia, the Wallabies only need to beat Georgia in their final game to guarantee their spot in the final eight.

If Wales beat Fiji, the Wallabies will go into their match against Georgia with a spot already wrapped up — which could give Michael Cheika plenty of room to play with team selections.

Uruguay are already knocked out, while Georgia would need to stun Australia with a bonus-point win and have many other results fall their way to have a shot.

In short: If Wales beat Fiji, Wales and Australia are through. If they don’t, just about everyone has a chance.
