Fiji 22-15 Australia gave Fiji the first win ever in the history of the Rugby World Cup. It is a historic day in Fiji.

The pair now has six points, as both have played two matches. However, Fiji is ahead because they are better in head-to-head record.

Simon Raiwalui, Fiji’s Head Coach, was thrilled after the match. He said, “I’m emotionally drained at the moment. It was a great contest. It kept us guessing until the end. We pushed the boys to the limits, and they’ve never once complained. There will be a few boys sore, but I’m super proud.”

According to the Rugby World Cup, only the top will play the quarter-final. Therefore, the specific match of Fiji in Saint-√Čtienne was very critical. The Flying Fijians were defeated by Wales in the previous game. The score was 32026 against Wales. The experts were considering it an uphill battle. However, Fiji crossed the hurdle and left themselves at a better position. They got this position with the help of two Kuruvoli penalties, and gave them a 6-3 lead.
