How Wales and Fiji play and Statistics
Wales’ game format has become poorer in the last years. They are not a fearsome team but anyway they always have players of hierarchy that enhance the level of their national team. The team is very attentive to rival mistakes and tries to score as many points as possible. Fiji, on the other hand, is a team with a lot of influence from the Sevens, as their players have great skills to dominate the ball. They always play a physical game where they tend to impose themselves on their opponents. They present mistakes due to their inexperience.
