Coach's view

Fiji 47-15 Uruguay

Uruguay coach Pablo Lemoine: "I am really proud of my team, it was a fantastic performance but we made two or three mistakes which cost us. It is fantastic we broke the record and scored the try. I think we were unlucky not to score more.

On the red card of Agustín Ormaechea: "I watched the TMO and I did not see anything there, we will have too wait for the result of the disciplinary officials.

On the England game: "We will try and play a tough game like we always do and do our best.

Night

Fiji 47-15 Uruguay

Uruguay head coach Pablo Lemoine tells ITV Sport that he is "really proud" of his teams.

He is a remarkably quiet composed guy on camera after all his delighted hollering and hooping in the coaches box during the match.

Fiji 47-15 Uruguay

FT Fiji 47-15 shame that Fiji's seven tries is overshadowed by tempers and poor discipline by both sides- also first red card of the WCup

I don't think that the friction between the two teams in the final 15 really overshadowed the game. I found it all heartily entertaining...

Record crowd

Stadium MK

 A stadium record 30,048 people attended tonight's match at Stadium MK.

Bear in mind that Sunday's Merseyside derby drew 39,598.

And this was Fiji v Uruguay. On a Tuesday night.

Incredible.

Converted try

Fiji 47-15 Uruguay (Nadolo, con Nadolo)

Nemani Nadolo is a bull of a man to take down in a one-on-one head-on situation. The Fiji wing busts through the tired tackle of Joaquin Prada to stroll in and then adds the extras with the final kick of the match.

Fiji 40-15 Uruguay

Rodrigo Silva gets a toe in as the ball pops out of the back of the Fiji scrum. Fijji tidy up behing their own try line.

And they try and run it!  

Glorious gloves-off bareknuckle rugby - both teams throwing massive haymakers looking for the final try.

Fiji 40-15 Uruguay

Uruguay put together 11 phases in possibly their most sustained passage of play in the match so far.

They do not make much impression on the Fiji defence though.

Plenty of adventure though. Full-back Gaston Mieres rescues a ball off the touchline and just avoids being smeared into next week by Nemani Nadolo before Joaquin Prada darts though a hole.

He has lost the ball on the floor though.

Fiji 40-15 Uruguay

Fourteen v fourteen as it stands, tiring legs and two teams keen to throw the ball about.

This is going to be a busy last 10 minutes.

Fiji 40-15 Uruguay

Fiji Asaeli Tikoirotuma decks Uruguay centre Joaquin Prada with a big shoulder with the ball a good 10 metres away.

He is a lucky boy to avoid yellow. It was very similar to the offence that earned England's Owen Farrell yellow against Australia.

Things are getting increasingly feisty.

"Work with me now. The boys need your leadership," JP Doyle pleads with Uruguay skipper Santiago Vilaseca.

Red card

Fiji 40-15 Uruguay

Agustín Ormaechea gets involved in a little push and shove in the aftermath of the score.

Referee JP Doyle decides that he has done enough to earn a second yellow card and his marching orders.

Campese Ma'afu - the target of Ormaechea's aggro - is also shown yellow. Rather harsh on both counts for me.

Converted try

Fiji 40-15 Uruguay (Murimurivalu, con Nadolo)

Fiji run the ball straight back from kick-off in a flurry of angles and series of deft offloads. Uruguay are tackling gamely but stopping the charge is like trying to pin mercury to a board.

Kini Murimurivalu ploughs over  for the score. 

Converted try

Fiji 33-15 Uruguay (Cavubati, con Nadolo)

Replacement second row Tevita Cavubati shunts his way over from close range after good work from Vereniki Goneva.

It then gets a little fruity as Cavubati reacts to wing Rodrigo Silva's belated attempt to get his arm under the ball.

Everyone eventually calms down and Nemani Nadolo adds the extras.

Alexander Robertson: Got the Fiji Uruguay game on and tuned in time to see that fantastic rugby leading to the second Uruguay try. Brilliant to see.

Replacement

Fiji 26-15 Uruguay

A change at scrum-half for Fiji with the lively Nemia Kenatale swapped out for Henry Seniloli.

Try

Fiji 26-15 Uruguay (Ormaechea, missed con Ormaechea)

My word.

Limbs are flying all over the shop in the Uruguayan coaches boxes to greet their side's second score.

A frustrated Fiji push their luck, throwing a mispass that goes to ground and Andres Vilaseca hacks in behind.

Fiji scamper back to try and stem the bleeding, but can only hold up Uruguay momentarily before Agustín Ormaechea gets his head up and spots a corridor of space down the blind side and slides in.

Ormaechea's conversion attempt bounces away off the top of the crossbar.

Fiji 26-10 Uruguay

Uruguay tick up over 50 tackles. The light blue shirts are packed tight to the fringes of the breakdown, soaking up the Fiji heavy artillery rolling in.

They made Wales look rather dull in their World Cup opener and they are blunting Fiji so far in this second half.

Fiji 26-10 Uruguay

Fiji with a line-out on the Uruguay 22m. A little rumble. Up to within 15m.

Nemani Nadolo in off his wing at pace. But he has spilled the ball forward as an ornate little set move goes awry.

Uruguay swoop and clear their lines. It is like attack against defence, but at the moment the defence is winning.

Replacement Mateo Sanguinetti is into the front row for Uruguay.

Uruguay still heading back at a rate of knots, but they have hooked that one cleanly and Alejandro Nieto picks and goes from eight. Uruguay with a platform in their own 22m.

And they boom a kick upfield...

Fiji 26-10 Uruguay

A quarter-break from Andres Vilaseca as Uruguay sling the ball long and he claims a bouncing ball ahead of a mob of white shirts.

But he gets isolated from his support and Fiji strip possession from his grasp.

Fiji 26-10 Uruguay

 Leroy Atalifo goes in a little high and is pinged. Nothing more than a penalty, but Uruguay kick up to the Fiji 22m and win the line-out...  

Fiji 26-10 Uruguay

Good solid tackling from Matias Beer, going hard and low on opposite number Akapusi Qera out wide.

Uruguay are playing this cleverly - not getting lured into committing too many men into lost-cause rucks and keeping their shape.

And their patience is rewarded with a penalty to clear their lines.

Romania dedicate win to Tincu

Canada 15-17 Romania

Romania made up a 15-point deficit on Canada earlier this afternoon to record the biggest comeback win in World Cup history.

And captain Mihai Macovei has dedicated the victory to the team's forwards coach, Marius Tincu, whose mother recently passed away.  

"We dedicate this victory to our fans and also Marius Tincu for staying with us because three days ago his mother died," Macovei said.

"All of our thoughts and hearts were with him."

Half-time

Fiji 26-10 Uruguay

Surprisingly it has been an even share of the ball between the two sides. But, tellingly, most of the action has been in the Uruguayan half - hence the scoreline.

BBC

Fiji 26-10 Uruguay

Uruguay's will and resolve is winning over the neutrals.

But Fiji wing Nemani Nadolo is the superstar on the pitch.

He has made 50m with the ball in hand, made two clean breaks and kicked three out of four conversions like a parent punting a ball back to a toddler.

Malcolm Harvey: Just FYI, if Uruguay were to win tonight, then beat England next week(!), it'd leave the hosts needing to qualify for RWC '19..

You're not wrong Malcolm, but it's looking unlikely...

Converted try

Fiji 26-10 Uruguay (Nakarawa, con. Nadolo)

Second rows throwing dummies and running in tries from 35m out?

That is Fiji for you. Leone Nakarawa pops up on the shoulder of Nemani Nadolo, sends the Uruguay full-back for an early hot-dog with a little fake and strolls in.

Fiji are ruling the scrum with an iron fist. They snatch one against the head as Uruguay are sent backpedalling and Ben Volavola chips ahead.

Nemani Nadolo is first to it, but he swoops and fails to gather.

Leone Nakarawa upends his opposite number in the line -out. 

Uruguay with another invitation to kick and a chance to cut the gap to six points.

Nope, Agustín Ormaechea shanks that one badly and the crowd sigh with disappointment.

Fiji 19-10 Uruguay

Nemani Nadolo on the charge down the line. The Fiji winger is nudged towards touch, opts to grubber forward before straying out of play and overcooks it.

Uruguay gamely chase up to close down the same man as they kick clear.

And they regain possession. Stadium MK are enjoying this resistance.

Points, points, points

Fiji 19-10 Uruguay

Want entertainment? Fiji will give you entertainment. 

They never fail to score....

32 - #FJI have now scored a try in their last 32 Tests, the longest current run by any team in Test rugby. Flying.

And never fail to concede...

28 - #FJI have now conceded a try in every single #RWC game they have played in, a run of 28 games. Consistent.
