Wales survive Fijian storm to reach Cup quarter-finals

Rory Arnold gets into full stride

Centre Hadleigh Parkes and wing Josh Adams are the only players remaining from Wednesday's win over Fiji.

It now leaves two weeks preparation for Eddie Jones' side for the last-eight clash - however, the former Japan head coach said, "we've got a fairly exceptional record in two-week preparations".

Ross Moriarty has hailed Wales's character after they overcame a ferocious Fijian challenge and booked a World Cup quarter-final place.

England and France are due to play their final Pool C game on Saturday in Yokohama, adjacent to Tokyo. At this year's World Cup, they attained the same result, but what was disappointing is the 27-30 loss to minnows Uruguay.

Los Pumas will seek to bounce back from losing to England to end their campaign on a high, while the US are still looking for their first point in Japan.

Fiji appeared promising in the build-up to the global showpiece, but have capitulated on the biggest stage of all, leaving all eyes on Wales to join fellow Home Nation England in the knockout stages.

Apple pulls Hong Kong app used by protesters after China warning
The tech giants are the latest US -based companies to get enmeshed in ongoing anti-government protests in the lucrative territory. The search giant said that " The Revolution of Our Times " violated its content rules because it depicted "sensitive events".

But his latest hit to the head, which left him prone on the ground until medical staff could get to him, put his future in the tournament in doubt.

"We didn't panic. We knew if we stuck to our process we would pull them back in, but when you see some of them running around it is a tough one to defend".

"We get so sick of playing the island nations - that's all we do is just play Fiji, Samoa, Canada - and those game are fine but for us to improve and to get better and to be competitive we need to play those tier one nation teams". If you let them run against you, it makes it hard work.

"World Rugby has made a decision and we've got no issue with it and we're just getting on with it now".

"Uruguay have played some good rugby, there is no doubt about that". If the game has to be moved, Oita in Japan's south-west is the most likely alternative venue, a source close to the French camp said.

"They are going to test us, particularly with this short turnaround and guys having to back up both games on the bench, too".
