  1. Goodbye for now

    Wales 17-13 Fiji

    Time for us in the Scrum V hotseats to say goodbye. So, Wales avoid another upset against Fiji, but only just.

    Warren Gatland clearly wasn't happy with a "frustrating" match, and the Millennium Stadium crowd seemed disgruntled too.

    You can read the match report here, and don't forget to tune into Scrum V live on BBC Two Wales tomorrow from 19:00 GMT for Ross Harries and the Scrum V pundits' dissection of the weekend's action.

    Wales

    And join us for Wales v New Zealand next Saturday, 22 November from 16:30 GMT with kick-off at 17:30 GMT.

    Former England centre on BBC One

    Selection for New Zealand next weekend has been made easy because nobody has really put their hand up today for Wales.

    Wales

    I didn't think they would be so disjointed with the changes because as a squad they're together a lot. But the amount of ball they lost shows it was the changes that disrupted them.

    If Fiji are cute at slowing the ball down, we're playing the masters at it next weekend in New Zealand.

    Liam Williams was a shining light. He's a very brave player but a very natural footballer as well.

    He was very unlucky with the disallowed try.

    Liam Williams

    He was probably the only player who has done his reputation any good today.

  9. Full time

    Wales 17-13 Fiji

    Well, that was a bit too close for comfort, wasn't it?

    There had been a couple of warnings from history - Fiji's 38-34 win which knocked Wales out of the 2007 World Cup and the 16-16 draw in Cardiff in 2010 - but Wales were close to suffering another embarrassing result here.

    Fiji played most of the second half with 14 men after Campese Ma'afu's red card, but Nemani Nadolo's late interception try gave them hope of causing another upset.

    Wales did not manage a single score in the second period, having crossed for three tries in the first half.

    One wonders what it will be like in the Wales changing room. Relief to have won? Disappointment with a disjointed performance?

    The second half was absolutely shocking. Wales should have built on a reasonable first half.

    But in the second half they couldn't get the line-out right and overturned too much ball.

    In the end Wales were the ones slowing the ball to get the clock down.

    That was coming wasn't it? Fiji have applied pressure in close quarter play.

    But I didn't envisage it coming from deep inside their half!

  16. Converted try for Fiji (Nadolo, con Nadolo)

    Wales 17-13 Fiji

    Would you believe it? Fiji are still in this.

    The man-mountain of a centre Nemani Nadolo picks off Priestland's pass and runs the length of the field to give Fiji a chance to claim another famous result against Wales.

    Nadolo

    Nadolo converts and this is now dangerously close for Wales.

  18. Near miss

    Wales 17-6 Fiji (75 minutes)

    Wales are living dangerously here, with Fiji letting the ball squirm loose on the Welsh try line.

    This will be an important scrum for Wales.

  19. Man of the Match

    Liam Williams

    Wales full-back Liam Williams takes the accolade, to rapturous applause from the Millennium Stadium crowd.

  20. Post update

    Wales 17-6 Fiji

    Fair to say that decision was less than popular at the Millennium Stadium.

    Liam Williams was adjudged to have been held by Tevita Cavubati, but the Wales full-back certainly seems to feel he has been harshly penalised.

  21. Post update

    Nick Webb

    BBC Radio Wales commentator

    This is incompetent officiating. That is a try in any language.

    It is stretching the definition of the rule to say that Liam Williams was held by the tackler for a fraction of a second.

  22. Disallowed try for Wales (Faletau)

    Wales 17-6 Fiji

    Liam Williams makes a weaving run into Fijian territory but is tackled by Tevita Cavubati.

    Taulupe Faletau

    Williams gets up and passes to Taulupe Faletau, who gallops clear to touch down, but Williams is adjudged to have made a double-movement.

  23. Try review for Wales (Faletau)

    Wales 17-6 Fiji

  24. Post update

    Wales 17-6 Fiji (70 minutes)

    Wales are almost sleepwalking into the last 10 minutes of the match here.

    Despite the red card to Fiji's Campese Ma'afu, there has been no score in the second half.

    Alex Cuthbert and Liam Williams have just led a Welsh attack into the Fijian 22 which came to nothing.

    Can Wales break through for their fourth try before the final whistle?

  25. Post update

    Adrian Hadley

    Former Wales wing on BBC Radio Wales

    Is this the time for James Hook?

    Wales need to fix the Fijian defence to make space. They're just drifting at the moment.

    Wales 17-6 Fiji

    Alex Cuthbert is pushed into touch just yards short of the Fiji line.

    I don't think the Millennium Stadium crowd has ever been so relieved to see a scrum.

    The last 10 minutes have been as disjointed and scrappy as you are ever likely to see from two international teams.

    Fiji won't mind - they revel in such loose matches, particularly when they only have 14 men.

    Alex Cuthbert

    But Wales need to get a grip if they are to make sure of victory.

    Fiji may have been reduced to 14 men, but they are as threatening as ever.

    It's poor at the moment. The Wales management and coaching staff won't be happy.

  41. Post update

    Wales 17-6 Fiji

    Having controlled the early exchanges of this second half, Wales have made a few mistakes which have rather punctured the quick pace of the game.

    The hosts are still in charge with a lead of 17-6 but one suspects head coach Warren Gatland - a hard taskmaster - will be expecting more from his side.

  42. Did you know?

    Jamie Roberts, George North, Scott Williams, Rhys Priestland, Mike Phillips, Bradley Davies, Taulupe Faletau and Alun Wyn Jones (on the bench at the moment) are survivors from the side that beat Fiji 66-0 at the 2011 World Cup.

    As was the case in the first half, Wales make a bright start to the second period and camp themselves on the Fijian try line within 90 seconds of the restart.

    Wales 17-6 Fiji

    It has been loose, ragged at times, but Wales will be happy to be leading at the break.

    They have scored three tries courtesy of George North, Alex Cuthbert and a penalty try, but Fiji have demonstrated what a dangerous team they can be.

    Vereniki Goneva and Nikola Matawalu have shown flashes of their considerable threat, while the huge centre Nemani Nadolo has kicked two penalties and missed another two.

    Alex Cuthbert

    This has not been as wild as the first-half shoot-out with Australia last weekend, but both teams have been trying to play enterprising, attacking rugby and you would expect more tries to follow after the restart.

    Wales' decision to kick to the corner pays off as referee Pascal Gauzere awards a penalty try after Fiji bring down a rolling Welsh maul.

  56. Sin-bin for Fiji (Ma'afu)

    Undeterred by Fiji's recent period of pressure, Wales are backing themselves here sending kickable penalties to the corner.

    Fijian pressure is mounting. Leicester's Vereniki Goneva makes a scintillating break from his own half and, in a flash, Fiji find themselves camped by the Welsh line again.

    The visitors waste a good chance to go over in the corner as flanker Masi Matadigo runs instead of passing to those outside him, and Nadolo misses the resultant penalty for Fiji.

    Again Priestland went on the blindside. It was a good ball by Priestland and Cuthbert has just gone outside his winger.

  65. Try

    Wales 10-0 Fiji

    Patience pays off for Wales, whose forwards pummel their way towards the Fijian line before Priestland launches a long pass to Alex Cuthbert, who runs over in the corner for a fourth try in his last four Tests.

    Alex Cuthbert

    Priestland misses a difficult conversion from the right touchline, but his pass may have helped silence the boo-boys in the stands.

    You cannot be loose against this side. Wales are very lucky to get away with that.

  68. No try

    After Rhys Priestland drops the ball near the halfway line, Fiji kick the ball towards the Wales line, where winger Waisea Nayacalevu looks poised to score but drops the ball just a couple of yards short of the try line.

    A narrow escape for Wales.

    For the second successive week, Wales make a flying start with an early try.

    This was a product of simple, clinical rugby with Mike Phillips and Rhys Priestland moving the ball wide to outside centre Scott Williams, who straightens his run and give George North the easy task of touching down in the left corner.

    Priestland pushes his conversion across the face of the posts but Wales will be very content with their start.

  75. Ouch!

    Wales 0-0 Fiji

    It's a positive start from Wales, keeping the ball in hand and looking to play with width and pace.

    Fiji captain Qera is a survivor of Fiji's 2007 World Cup win over Wales and the 16-16 draw in Cardiff three years later.

    The powerful former Gloucester number eight now plays for Montpellier but has managed only 179 minutes across five games for the French side in the Top 14 this season.

    If he is a little rusty, it could be a long afternoon against Newport Gwent Dragon Faletau, who is a tireless grafter at the back of the Welsh scrum.

    Lately, however, Faletau has been a little quiet by his own high standards and is due a big performance.

    Mike Phillips v Nikola Matawalu in the scrum-half berths.

    This could be one of the most fascinating duels on the pitch today.

    Followers of the Pro12 will be familiar with Fiji's Nikola Matawalu, who has been exceptional for Glasgow over the last two seasons.

    Matawalu, an electric, elusive runner who can also play on the wing, could be a thorn in the Welsh side - and it will be Phillips' job to combat the Fijian's considerable threat.

    Racing Metro's Phillips has used his physicality to unsettle some of the world's leading scrum-halves such as Will Genia and Fourie du Preez, and he is bound to have a busy afternoon marking Matawalu.

  88. Post update

    Wales head coach Warren Gatland has said places are up for grabs for next week's match against New Zealand, so there will be an added incentive for his players to impress against Fiji.

    The likes of half-backs Mike Phillips and Rhys Priestland will be eager to reclaim their first-team places from Rhys Webb and Dan Biggar, while Wales' captain today Gethin Jenkins will want his loose-head prop jersey back as well.

    As for the back row, competition for places is tough. Justin Tipuric starts at openside flanker today and the Ospreys man will be aiming to put pressure on skipper Sam Warburton or today's starter at six, Dan Lydiate, for a starting berth against the All Blacks.

  94. Team news - Wales

    Wales have made eight changes from the team which lost 33-28 to Australia last weekend - but it is a strong line-up.

    George North is back on the wing having faced the Wallabies at centre, and the Northampton giant only needs two tries to draw level with Tom Shanklin and the legendary Gerald Davies and Gareth Edwards as Wales' joint-fifth top try-scorer of all time on 20 tries.

    There is also a first Wales start for Ospreys hooker Scott Baldwin, who says he was "skateboarding instead of playing rugby" until his mid-teens.

    Baldwin will have another youngster, Samson Lee, alongside him at tight-head prop, but the two tyros will have Wales' most capped player and captain for the day, Gethin Jenkins, at loose-head.

  96. Team news - Fiji's threats

    So what can we expect from Fiji?

    It's not often that Jamie Roberts is smaller than his opposite number, but the Wales and Racing Metro centre is up against a formidable specimen in the form of Nemani Nadolo.

    At 20 stone, Nadolo is three stone heavier than Welsh juggernaut Roberts, and the Fijian is a prolific try-scorer.

    The Crusaders man was the joint top-scorer in this year's Super 15, and he has an impressive 13 tries from 16 appearances for Fiji.

    "I don't think I've ever played against a 12 who is bigger than me before," said Roberts. Rather you than us, Jamie.

  97. Starting soon

    It's just an hour until Wales v Fiji kicks off.

    Wales will be expected to win comfortably, but recent history tells us to take nothing for granted in this fixture.

    In the last three meetings between the teams, there has been one win each and a draw.

    Fiji's 38-34 victory knocked Wales out of the 2007 World Cup and led to the departure of then-Wales coach Gareth Jenkins, while their 16-16 draw in Cardiff three years later was another game to forget for Wales.

    Warren Gatland's men avenged those results with an emphatic 66-0 win at the 2011 World Cup, giving Wales a seventh win from their nine matches against Fiji.

    The two sides meet for a 10th time today. How do you think it will go?
