Wales fire themselves into the quarter-finals of the World Cup with 66-point win.

Wales have fired themselves into the quarter-finals of the World Cup on the back of a 66-point shut-out win over Fiji in Hamilton.

Jamie Roberts ran through Fiji's defence after just five minutes to score the first try of the game, before Rhys Priestland converted his first of five to extend the lead. Scott Williams was then put through, just 10 minutes later, side-stepping the last man to create a clear path for Wales's second.

Priestland followed his one penalty of the match by converting two more tries before the break – the first from George North and then Sam Warburton.

Jamie Roberts was there again after five minutes to score his second of the game, allowing Priestland to go five-for-five before being replaced.

Lloyd Burns got in on the scoring as he put up his first international try, allowing Stephen Jones to convert his first of four in place of Priestland. Leigh Halfpenny's try followed, before Jonathan Davies and Lloyd Williams in the last 10 minutes.
