WAL 23-13 FJI (8-0-review)

by Big Joe Shep

A frenetic and thoroughly enjoyable end to end game saw Wales explode out in the initial stages with strength, speed and an intent that successfully turned pressure into an early 7 point advantage. Baldwin added second try before half-time despite a superb defence from Fiji who themselves played excellent counter attacking rugby and dominated the scrums. They eventually scored one of the tries of the competition. The Welsh tired and despite clear opportunities, they failed to secure the BP win.
