Wales overcome impressive Fiji to reach Rugby World Cup quarters

Huge Typhoon Could Threaten Ireland’s Chances Of Reaching Quarter-Finals

Scotland breezed past an exhausted-looking Russian Federation 61-0 at the Rugby World Cup on Wednesday to set up a showdown with host Japan for a quarterfinal place.

Russian Federation threw everything into its first three games in Japan and had nothing left in the tank at Shizuoka Stadium and was completely overrun.

Scotland prop Gordon Reid is savouring every moment of what is likely to be his last Rugby World Cup and says he is relishing the prospect of facing a player whom coach Gregor Townsend described as one of the best tightheads at the tournament.

Hagibis has escalated from a tropical storm into a Category 5 super typhoon with winds reaching 180mph into one of the most dramatic intensifications of any tropical cyclone since records began.

Townsend added: "If we hadn't got the bonus point, Sunday would have been more hard".

The country is still recovering from a powerful typhoon last month that left hundreds of thousands of homes without power, with electricity yet to be fully restored.

It was a thrilling and pulsating contest, with Wales hoping their fitness levels might prove decisive as the game entered its closing quarter.

"I checked the weather app (on Wednesday morning), about eight hours ago, and it did look like it was heading into Tokyo this weekend, unless it has changed since then", the Dark Blues head coach said after his side's rout of Russian Federation. However, forecasts from the Joint Typhoon Warning centre and the Japanese Meteorological Service suggest it will make landfall in southern Honshu, around the Tokyo area on Saturday lunchtime United Kingdom time.

Meanwhile, Russia's Welsh coach Lyn Jones has made four changes from the team that battled well despite defeat by Ireland.

Supreme Court Order On Aarey "Moral Victory" For Activists: Shiv Sena
They were soon released by a holiday court post a bail bond of Rs. 7000 and also asked not to take part in any protests in future. It's locally known as the Aarey "milk colony" because most of the land was given to the department of dairy development in 1951.

In Pool D, Scotland finally clicked into gear, running in nine tries in a 61-0 rout of Russian Federation at Shizuoka Stadium Ecopa.

Out-half Adam Hastings got the show on the road by scoring two tries within the first 17 minutes, before George Horne touched down twice by the 44th minute.

George Horne may have been one of the smallest players on the park as Scotland faced Russian Federation on Wednesday morning - but the impact he made was huge.

Fiji produced a flying start with two tries in a dramatic opening, in which a third try was ruled out by a forward pass and Wales went a man down when hooker Ken Owens was sent to the sin-bin for a unsafe tackle.

"The physical potential in Russian Federation is unlimited", Jones said. "Obviously, we're out of the World Cup but with those guys, the future is looking good for Argentina". If we hadn't got that then Sunday would have been even more hard.

"It's always been in our schedule", Townsend said.

"We knew we had Georgia up first, and we knew they would be a big physical pack, so we wanted to play some rugby against them to try and tire the forwards out".

It was no surprise when Tuisova crossed for the first try of the game in just the fourth minute, barging away three tacklers like a bulldozer.
