  • As an Aussie, I totally tip my hat to Fiji’s performance today. The wallabies were outclassed in almost every respect. The three things that I thought were terrific about Fiji were their power and retention at the breakdowns, finding a reliable kicker who can slot penalties, and of course their never say die attitude. Quarter finals here they come. πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰
  • Congratulations Fiji. Love from Australia πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί

    As a Wallabies fan it's not just that you deserved to win that game in particular, it's also the years, the decades over which you have fed talent into other countries, especially Australia. I hope you go on to be real giant-killers in this tournament. No one deserves success more than Fiji.

    This must be one of the best World Cups in my life, seeing these teams doing so great . Really excited for the upcoming games. Well done Fiji , you deserve it.
  • If anyone had said prior to this RWC that Fiji would defeat the Wallies WITH THE BOOT, no one would have thought it possible at all !!! Monumental !!!

    As an All Blacks fan, I was cheering Fiji the whole way o this match. No hate to the Wallabies at all but Fiji has been a sleeping giant for decades. The Fijian Drua awesome performances during this years Super Rugby season was an indication of how far Fijian rugby has come and has rippled into their international game. I reckon if they can keep this level of rugby up or reach higher levels as the tournament goes on, then I reckon they could even pull off appearing in the Final since they don't have to contend with the likes of the All blacks, Ireland, France and South Africa on their way to the Final. They beat England not so long ago and Wales were lucky to get that win if Fiji didn't drop the ball.

    I could blabber on but this rugby world cup has become even more exciting as the so called lower tier teams are pulling off upset wins through years of grinding, management, timing of peak performances and of course SELF BELIEF!!!

    Can't wait for the upcoming matches in the pool rounds :) LET'S GO!!!!!!
