Well, this should be a different style of game from the Boks vs Romania game. I would love to see Fiji win this one.

Sep 17, 2023, 15:38

Think everyone outside of the Fly-Blown Hell is pulling for Fiji here.

Sep 17, 2023, 15:49

Chant is already echoing Fiji. But already a high tackle.

Sep 17, 2023, 15:50

Another high shot, Fiji has got to stop this.

Sep 17, 2023, 16:00

3 all, Fiji with some good play leading to this.

Sep 17, 2023, 16:13

Cheap try for OZ

Sep 17, 2023, 16:21

Watching with one eye. Fiji keeping their noses in front.

Sep 17, 2023, 16:22

Aus not making much headway through multiple phases.

Sep 17, 2023, 16:23

Fiji doing ok so far.

Sep 17, 2023, 16:24

Fiji's sharpshooter strikes again. 12-8.

Sep 17, 2023, 16:25

Lekker space for Oz down the middle, then they drop it in contact.

Sep 17, 2023, 16:31

Fiji goes for the corner instead of the points and blows the lineout :'(

Sep 17, 2023, 16:44

Some blunders by Fiji in the lineout on their throw and of course not defending for the quick throw in by OZOZ will come out strong in second half but Fiji is still in it.  I'm looking for the spectacular try:P

Sep 17, 2023, 16:53

Fiji scores a try from a missed catch of a kick.:P

Sep 17, 2023, 16:55

Lucky with that let off charge down were Fiji

Sep 17, 2023, 17:03

Let's see if Fiji can keep their cool here. Oz doesn't seem to have much in the arsenal to trouble them.

Sep 17, 2023, 17:04

Great opportunity wide for Fiji and the pass goes...nowhere.

Sep 17, 2023, 17:07

They did the same in the game against Wales.

Sep 17, 2023, 17:10

Great counter ruck Fiji but Oz gets the scrum. Lucky.

Sep 17, 2023, 17:10

Fiji has easily been the best team. Australia doesn't seem to have any answers. 
Australia brings on the bench players, to see if they can change the flow of the game 

Sep 17, 2023, 17:14

True SB but I feel OZ will find a way and that Fiji is hanging on for dear life. I  hope Fiji starts keeping the ball in OZ territory

Sep 17, 2023, 17:16

Go Oz put the head hunters away! 

Sep 17, 2023, 17:17

A traitor has arrived in our midst.

Sep 17, 2023, 17:20

Fiji getting the steals, not their usual style but they need it right now.

Sep 17, 2023, 17:20

Oz not getting anything going.

Sep 17, 2023, 17:23

Fiji the better team, picking them to hold on to this, as long as they don't resort to their typical 7s loose style. 

Keeping their heads so far, good signs for Fiji going forward in 15s

Sep 17, 2023, 17:24

Fiji two scores ahead now. 22-8

Sep 17, 2023, 17:26

Come on Fiji! Hang in there.

Sep 17, 2023, 17:26

Their line outs are a problem and that with a rolling maul is a danger for Fiji,

Sep 17, 2023, 17:28

The draw could be a good bet here . . .

Sep 17, 2023, 17:29

Oz back in it, 22-15

Sep 17, 2023, 17:30

Well done Oz. 

It looks to me neither Oz nor the wee abs are doing we since we left. I did of course warn them.

Anyhow go Oz I don't like head hunting. 

Sep 17, 2023, 17:31

Fiji are fighting to the end

Sep 17, 2023, 17:31

Fiji living on the edge. Kick it down field.

Sep 17, 2023, 17:31

Stupid Oz scrum half goes the wrong way. 

Sep 17, 2023, 17:32

Fiji lineout is just terrible.

Sep 17, 2023, 17:32

Another Oz siege ends in a Fiji penalty. They've done well at the tackle.

Sep 17, 2023, 17:33

Damn lineouts are going to cost them the match.

Sep 17, 2023, 17:34

Finally they win one!

Sep 17, 2023, 17:35

And then mess up all the advantage with a wayward pass.

Sep 17, 2023, 17:37

Fiji haven't beaten the Wallabies since 1954? 

Good grief!

Sep 17, 2023, 17:39

What a break by Nayacalevu. Oz survives that by the skin of their teeth.

Sep 17, 2023, 17:40

Well done Fiji!

Sep 17, 2023, 17:40

Fiji haven't beaten the Wallabies since 1954?

This might be the worst Wallaby side since then.

Sep 17, 2023, 17:41

Fiji get a scrum penalty.

Sep 17, 2023, 17:41

Finally Fiji got out of their own way and won something they deserved.

Sep 17, 2023, 17:42

Congrats to Fiji, what a tense match and not the running game we expected. They did it!!

Sep 17, 2023, 17:43

Oz look a pale shadow of their former self. 

Next time don't follow the nz get the jarpies. 

The down under loons need South Africa more than we needed them. 

I hope the lesson is being learnt. 

Well done Fiji but do try to cleanup your game. 

Sep 17, 2023, 17:52

Fiji have Georgia and Portugal coming up so they could win both games if they keep their heads.

Sep 17, 2023, 17:52

Well done Flying Fijians, hooray even denied Wallabies of losing bonus point...they have beaten Australia, England, Scotland,Wales, Argentina and France in the past.

Sep 17, 2023, 17:52

Congrats to FIJI - they were definitely the better team  on the day, 

However, to my mind there is a serious issue that bother me.   Australia has large expat communities from SA  and those people go to rugby matches - especially those when  SA teams  are playing.   .    The end of Super Rugby involving SA has weakened badly Aussie Rugby as a whole since bigger crowds increase revenue from broadcasters.

Comments will be appreciated.    .      .

Simon Raiwalui has improved their rugby since Vern Cotter departed. I think it all depends basically on the coach.

Sep 17, 2023, 21:35

Congratulations Fiji for a well deserved win! Their 15s game is rapidly improving and they are causing headaches at this RWC.

Sep 17, 2023, 21:38

Ture moola but I do miss their electrifying ball in hand play. Let's hope they still have that in their game plan.
