Kia ora, good morning and welcome to Newshub's live coverage of the Rugby World Cup pool game between Wales and Fiji at Nouveau Stade de Bordeaux.

Since the 'Flying Fijians' upset England at Twickenham two weeks ago, they have loomed as the potential giantkillers of this tournament and get to test that potential against a team that has been ripe for an upset throughout history.

In fact, the Pacific Islanders have already toppled the Welsh in 2007 World Cup poolplay, earning passage into the quarter-finals. That's their only success against Wales though, with a draw at Millennium Stadiun three years later the next closest rest.

Incredibly, these two teams have met in tournament poolplay at the last four events - this will make five.

At seventh, Fiji arrive at Bordeaux ranked higher than Wales (10th), so this looms as a cracker match-up to wind up the first weekend of games in France.

Join us at 7am Monday for kickoff.
