  1. Australia 28-13 Fiji

    So Australia impressed, yet they leave the Millennium Stadium bonus-pointless.

    Will that prove crucial when push comes to shove in Pool A? Only time will tell.

    Thanks for joining us - we'll see you again in around 35 minutes' time for France v Romania.

  2. BBC Sport and the Rugby World Cup

    With over an hour to go until that final match of the day, it looks like you may have a bit of time to kill too.

    But you can consider yourselves rather lucky, because there's still plenty to catch up on in the meantime...

    - Ben Dirs explains how if Japan are minnows, Nabia  - who face the All Blacks on Thursday - are plankton. 

    - There's reaction to Scotland's five-try victory over Japan. 

    - And an iWonder guide interestingly titled 'A load of balls'.

    - To get the grey matter working, we've also created a Wales v England World Cup quiz. 

  3. The show goes on...

    Feeling sad because Australia v Fiji is over? No need, because from 19:30 BST we'll have live text commentary on France v Romania from the Olympic Stadium. Kick off in that Pool D contest is at 20:00 BST.

    The Rugby World Cup really is just the gift that keeps on giving.

  4. Australia 28-13 Fiji

    Australia coach Michael Cheika: "I thought it was a really good game, and a good workout for us. It was physical. I think at times in the second half, you could tell it was our first game in a while. The guys were blowing a bit. But we came through well.

    "We haven't thought about the bonus point. It's not Super Rugby, it's the World Cup. I had to ask the question if they had the bonus point here because I don't think they have it in the northern hemisphere.

    "I'll turn the whole team around for the game against Uruguay on Sunday. I'll see how Slips [James Slipper] goes with the concussion case, but otherwise I'll turn the whole team around."

  5. Australia 28-13 Fiji

    Fiji finished on the up, which is why they end the match having enjoyed 53% of possession. Australia had already done the damage, though, by the time Fiji had stirred and revived.

  7. Australia 28-13 Fiji

    Australia captain Steven Moore: "I thought Fiji were terrific; they're a much-improved side. We're happy with our efforts, but there's plenty to work on for the next Test. Our coach Michael Cheika hasn't spoken to us about the bonus point - Test footy is about winning."

  8. Australia 28-13 Fiji

    Rob Jones

    Former Wales scrum-half on BBC Radio 5 live

    "I thought Australia were fantastic in the first half and early in the second. They controlled the game. Their set-piece is far better than we've seen in the past. They look a very accomplished side.

    "They've got a lot of depth; they've got good quality players on the sidelines ready to come in. They were pressurised in the second half but they worked hard and defended well.

    "They've set a bit of a benchmark that Wales and England will be looking at."

  9. Australia 28-13 Fiji

    Well played, both.

    And, though it matters little now, there was one area where Fiji did actually beat Australia and that was in the offloads, with the Fijians offloading 11 times in the tackle compared to Australia's one.

  10. Australia 28-13 Fiji

    Rob Jones

    Former Wales scrum-half on BBC Radio 5 live

    "David Pocock has been excellent for Australia. He's carried more than he has in the past. We know what he's capable of at the breakdown, and we've seen that time and time again this evening."

    Pocock, playing at number eight, is announced as man of the match.

  11. Full-time

    Australia 28-13 Fiji

    But two knock-ons in quick succession from both sides makes from a scrappy ending, with Glen Jackson's final whistle eventually arriving as the ball dribbles out of play.

    Neither team seemed to want the game to end and, truth be told, nor did I. An entertaining watch, but the win is Australia's

  12. Australia 28-13 Fiji

    Right then, we'll have a scrum deep inside the Australia half - will there be one final flourish?

    The answer is a maybe, as the Wallabies win a penalty and quickly head for touch. They'll go in search of a bonus point...

  13. Australia 28-13 Fiji

    Rob Jones

    Former Wales scrum-half on BBC Radio 5 live

    Nemani Nadolo is tackled

    "You've got to applaud the Australian defence. I'd say there are 30 tired men out there.

    "It's been the Fiji of old in this second half, with good handling and footwork. But Australia's defensive work has managed to keep them out - and this result is going to pretty much put Fiji out of any contention of going through."

  14. Australia 28-13 Fiji

    The game is surely over, but Fiji's spirit will not be broken. Lock Leone Nakarawa is the star of their last move, offloading spectacularly under a Wallaby challenge, but at last an exhausting period of play comes to an end.

    Slightly bizarrely for a match between Australia and Fiji played in Wales, a rendition of "Swing low, sweet chariot" breaks out.

  15. Australia 28-13 Fiji

    An overlap is wasted on the left, but Fiji still come forward, this time through Niki Goneva...

  16. Australia 28-13 Fiji

    Australia v Fiji

    The last 20 minutes or so have been close, which is why it's 50-50 in possession between the two teams, but Bernard Foley's recent penalty may well prove the difference.

    The packs get together for a scrum 10 metres from the line, from which Fiji win a penalty. They run it...

  17. Sin-bin - Kuridrani

    Australia 28-13 Fiji

    Tevita Kuridrani is shown a yellow card

    They've been warned, have the Australians, and Tevita Kuridrani has paid the price - yellow-carded by referee Glen Jackson for coming off his feet competing at a ruck.

    The Wallabies will end the contest a man light.

  18. Australia 28-13 Fiji

    They're not going away though, make no mistake. Ben Volavola launches a clearance up field and scrum-half Nick Phipps, back tracking under the high ball, can only drop the ball into touch.

    Kurtley Beale is on for Matt Giteau too, by the way.

  19. Australia 28-13 Fiji

    Rob Jones

    Former Wales scrum-half on BBC Radio 5 live

    The Australia scrum

    "If Australia get their set-piece right, they can compete against any nation in the world. Since they brought Mario Ledesma in as scrum coach, there have been signs that they're doing just that. I'm sure Michael Cheika will be talking about Ledesma in the press conference afterwards, because he's certainly made a difference."

  20. Penalty - Foley

    Australia 28-13 Fiji

    Bernard Foley, despite a good dose of jeering from the Millennium Stadium crowd, keeps his composure to slot the penalty.

    They move 15 points ahead, more than a couple of converted Fijian tries.

  21. Australia 25-13 Fiji

    But Australia, perhaps with fresher legs on from the bench, draw a penalty and Bernard Foley will have a shot at goal.

    It looked as though skipper Akapusi Qera was the man to blame on that occasion.

  22. Australia 25-13 Fiji

    Fiji are dragging themselves back into this game and in the second half it is Australia's discipline which has faltered, with the Wallabies (white dots) conceding four penalties in dangerous positions. Fiji have only been punished twice, and that was in the Australian half.

    A Fijian knock-on sees Nick Pipps called into action for the first time though, inserting at a scrum just inside opposition territory.

    Australia v Fiji
  23. Australia 25-13 Fiji

    James Slipper goes off

    And James Slipper, though back to his feet and able to walk, will certainly play no further part. Scott Sio's back on in his place.

    Nick Phipps is also on at scrum-half, replacing Will Gnia.

  24. Get involved

    #bbcsport

    Dave Fassam: Australia are looking good, but Fiji look a little tired. Got to question the fixture lists in RWCs!

    Ewan Clark: Fiji have been sloppy today.

    John M Butt: Too many rules now at the breakdown. Too many penalties and yellow cards. It’s time the rules were thinned down to let the game flow.

  25. Australia 25-13 Fiji

    The Wallabies line-out has fast become a bit of a mess here, as another Stephen Moore throw is grabbed by a white-shirted player.

    But as the counter-attack breaks down, there's a bit of concern for Australia's James Slipper and Fiji's Peceli Yato, who clashed heads in the tackle. A sore one.

    James Slipper is injured
  26. Australia 25-13 Fiji

    Rob Jones

    Former Wales scrum-half on BBC Radio 5 live

    Ben Volavola

    "They've given themselves a chance with that try. It's been all Fiji over the last 10 minutes They got that forward drive, Volavola throws the dummy and then it's all about momentum."

  27. Australia 25-13 Fiji

    Not if the Wallabies have anything to do with it, and they'll have a penalty after a high tackle from replacement Nemia Soqeta on wing Rob Horne.

    Bernard Foley thumps the ball out of play - Fijian defence now needs to be as sharp as their recent attacking.

    And it is! They steal the line-out and clear.

  28. Try - Volavola, con Nadolo

    Australia 25-13 Fiji

    Ben Volavola celebrates scoring a try

    Superb, just superb. Fly-half Ben Volavola, who once represented Australia's Under-20 side at the World Junior Championships, dances past the first tackle and then rolls past the next to touch down under the posts.

    Nemani Nadolo converts, Fiji are 12 points behind.

    They couldn't, could they?

  29. Australia 25-6 Fiji

    This is developing into a brilliant watch as Fiji continue to play with speed and enterprise.

    A warning to Australia captain Stephen Moore too, as replacement Greg Holmes is penalised for coming in at the side.

    To touch we go. At this point, the non-Australians in the crowd are backing only one team...

  30. Australia 25-6 Fiji

    The Flying Fijians are playing right on the edge here, trying everything with ball in hand. This is a now-or-never moment in time.

    All the while, Australia make a double change in their front row as Scott Sio and Sekope Kepu are withdrawn for James Slipper and Greg Holmes.

  31. Australia 25-6 Fiji

    Fiji are enjoying their best period of the second half, but still it's Australia who have overwhelmingly dominated possession and territory in the last 10 minutes.

    Australia v Fiji
  32. Australia 25-6 Fiji

    Rob Simmons

    Stephen Moore has the line-out and Australia secure the ball, but Waisea Nayacalevu is steady under scrum-half Will Genia's big up and under.

    Fiji have the ball but they're in the wrong part of the field.

  33. Australia 25-6 Fiji

    Right intent, wrong execution. Gabiriele Lovobalavu is the guilty party, sending a floaty pass over the head of Nemani Nadolo and out of play.

    Their accuracy has to improve if they're to remain in with a shout.

  34. Australia 25-6 Fiji

    Rob Jones

    Former Wales scrum-half on Radio 5 live sports extra

    "So far Australia have probably produced the best rugby of this tournament."

  35. Australia 25-6 Fiji

    The ball is back in Australian hands soon enough though, Scott Sio, Michael Hooper and Scott Fardy all trying to punch another hole in that Fijian defence - who actually do well to draw a penalty at the breakdown.

  36. Penalty - Nadolo

    Australia 25-6 Fiji

    Nemani Nadolo

    And wing Nemani Nadolo successfully lands the kick to reduce the arrears to 19 points.

    Still lots to do for the Fijians but it is, at least, a start.

  37. Australia 25-3 Fiji

    Straight from the restart, however, Bernard Foley is turned over and then penalised for coming off his feet.

    Perhaps surprisingly Fiji will take the three points...

  38. Post update

    Rob Jones

    Former Wales scrum-half on Radio 5 live sports extra

    Australia players celebrate

    "That try sums up Australia, and their pace and power. Accuracy of the pass, pace when they go to deck, and everyone is comfortable with the ball in hand.

    "Australia are going to be relentless now."

  39. Try - Kepu, con Foley

    Australia 25-3 Fiji

    Sekope Kepu

    And that's exactly what Australia would've wanted - and what Fiji wouldn't have wanted - to open up this second half.

    The green and gold again switch the ball across in search of the fleet-footed Israel Folau, who skips past the first tackler before being brought down.

    The damage is already done as the Fijians are left scrambling back though, and prop Sekope Kepu shows a lovely little step to cross from close range.

    The conversion from Bernard Foley is good, and this is looking like a long 35 minutes for Fiji.

  40. Australia 18-3 Fiji

    Fiji actually steal the ball momentarily, but they're immediately penalised for not releasing.

    The Wallabies are wasting no time with the line-out either...

  41. Kick-off

    Australia 18-3 Fiji

    Time to get moving again then. Glen Jackson's whistle prompts Bernard Foley to kick long, which Fiji safely gather and clear long.

    Immediately, Australia full-back Israel Folau is on the charge...

    Israel Folau
  42. Australia 18-3 Fiji

    Fiji threatened occasionally in the opening half and looked like they could cause damage with the ball in hand, but it was Australia who dominated possession and territory. Fiji rarely visited the green and gold's 22.

  44. The reliable Foley

    Australia 18-3 Fiji

    Bernard Foley has yet to miss a kick with the boot and the outside-half has been a reliable performer with the ball in hand in the first half, making the most metres of all. 

    Most metres made Australia v Fiji

  48. Australia 18-3 Fiji

    Rob Jones

    Former Wales scrum-half on BBC Radio 5 live

    "Australia have looked good and comfortable. They've got better as the game has gone on. Their scrum hasn't had the better of the Fiji side but their driving line-out has been excellent. Fiji have looked a little tired - perhaps the yellow card has affected them."

  49. Half-time

    Australia 18-3 Fiji

    It's hard to argue with Rob Jones's summation - Fiji have had their moments, but Australia are well on top thanks to a couple of David Pocock tries.

    It's been ruthless.

  50. Australia 18-3 Fiji

    Rob Jones

    Former Wales scrum-half on BBC Radio 5 live

    "They've been very impressive so far, Australia. A lot of people will be looking at them as contenders for this World Cup."

  51. Penalty - Foley

    Australia 18-3 Fiji

    Bernard Foley's kick is good. Australia are firmly in charge.

  52. Australia 15-3 Fiji

    Goodness me, an almost farcical passage of play follows though, with neither team able to grasp the ball just inside the Fiji half.

    Eventually there's an infringement in the middle of it all, one of the Fijian props guilty, so Bernard Foley will aim for the posts.

  53. Australia 15-3 Fiji

    Australia attempt to run the ball from deep now, but it's knocked on and Fiji will insert at the scrum.

    It looked to be wilting too, but somehow they squeeze the ball out and get it to the imposing Nemani Nadolo - but he's halted and then fails to release.

    Bernard Foley's touch finder doesn't serve its purpose though, so Fiji are reprieved.

    Nemani Nadolo
  54. Try - Pocock, missed con Foley

    Australia 15-3 Fiji

    And it's an absolute carbon copy of the earlier try, as David Pocock, at number eight rather than blind-side flanker this afternoon, goes over behind that imperious Australian driving maul.

    Bernard Foley misses from the tee but this is beginning to look ominous for Fiji, who still have another eight minutes or so down to 14 men.

    David Pocock
  55. Sin-bin - Ma'afu

    Australia 10-3 Fiji

    The Australian charge is starting to gain momentum now - and Fiji's life is made more difficult when Campese Ma'afu kicks the ball away at the base of a ruck and gets sent to the sin-bin.

    To touch once again.

    Campese Ma'afu
  56. Australia 10-3 Fiji

    Australia v Fiji

    There's not been a huge amount between the two teams so far, although Australia have had possession in more threatening areas - and the lead is now theirs.

    The Wallabies come forward once more...

  57. Australia 10-3 Fiji

    Rob Jones

    Former Wales scrum-half on BBC Radio 5 live

    "The initial drive was stopped by Fiji. But things started to splinter, and that just created a bit of space. David Pocock is so short, squat and powerful, and managed to work his way over. Glen Jackson was perfectly placed - he didn't feel the need to go to the TMO. I like to see a referee back themselves."

  58. Try - Pocock, con Foley

    Australia 10-3 Fiji

    And this time the Wallabies simply cannot be halted. Stephen Moore's throw is straight, David Pocock's grab is clean, and behind the rolling maul he forces his way over.

    Australia, thanks to Bernard Foley's conversion from a tight angle, lead by seven points.

    David Pocock
  59. Australia 3-3 Fiji

    Safe ball is secured and Australia switch the ball across from left to right, with full-back Israel Folau prowling.

    Nemani Nadolo gets to him, but it's a high tackle from the Fiji wing.

    Australia head to touch on the opposite side this time...

    Nemani Nodolo
  60. Australia 3-3 Fiji

    Straight from the restart the game immediately opens right up. First Nikola Matawalu, so impressive in the opening stages, resists Michael Hooper's tackle to break through - before a turnover allows Bernard Foley a break down the right.

    They have bodies over too, do Australia, but the ball goes down.

    The whistle had gone already though, allowing the Wallabies to go to touch five metres out. A first try of the match on the horizon?

  61. Penalty - Nadolo

    Australia 3-3 Fiji

    The maul doesn't quite shift second time around, but it does do enough for Fiji to be awarded a penalty.

    And there's no messing about this time, as Nemani Nadolo splits the posts to draw level.

    Terrific little spell this for Fiji.

  62. Australia 3-0 Fiji

    Still it rolls, on and on... now, Nikola Matawalu peals away to look inside, can he pick out a supporting back? Fiji are up to the Australia five-metre line - and they have a penalty!

    To touch or to the posts? Great ambition - to touch it is.

  63. Australia 3-0 Fiji

    A knock-on hands Will Genia a put-in at the scrum - but it's tremendous scrummaging from Fiji as the two packs go toe-to-toe. The scrum holds almost deadly still for 10, 20, 30 seconds... before eventually it collapses in a heap.

    The Flying Fijians win a penalty. What a boost that is for them.

    They head to touch, and here comes the rolling maul...

    Australia v Fiji scrum
  64. Australia 3-0 Fiji

    Referee Glen Jackson is already soaked in sweat trying to keep up, as Matt Giteau clears from behind his own try-line.

    Fiji have the ball just inside the Wallabies half now, working through the phases. And here's prop Manasa Saulo out wide - what's he doing on the wing?!

    Clearly disorientated, he steps out of play.

    Matt Giteau
  65. Australia 3-0 Fiji

    Here comes another yellow and green wave then - Australia have very much started on the front foot - but this time it's they who infringe at the breakdown, Bernard Foley failing to release the ball.

    Scott Fardy
  66. Penalty - Foley

    Australia 3-0 Fiji

    Australia earn themselves a penalty as the move develops too, handing 26-year-old fly-half Bernard Foley an opportunity to kick for goal from right in front of the posts - one he duly accepts.

    First blood to the Wallabies.

    Bernard Foley
  67. Australia 0-0 Fiji

    Not Adam Ashley-Cooper's finest opening six minutes, kicking from hand straight out of play.

    Fiji's line-out is good, Nikola Matawalu dances inside and they're on the attack too - until Leicester's Niki Goneva throws a pass miles forwards that is, handing Australia a scrum inside Fijian territory.

    A breathless start to this Pool A contest.

  68. Australia 0-0 Fiji

    Australia v Fiji

    The half-and-half scarves are out in force at the Millennium Stadium - as this picture by BBC Sport's Sara Orchard proves.

  69. Australia 0-0 Fiji

    But Adam Ashley-­Cooper, who scored when these two sides met in the 2007 World Cup, slips stepping in from his wing and spills the ball.

    The Wallabies are back on the attack soon enough though, Will Genia pulling the strings.

    And now a first sight of Israel Folau, whose offload drifts straight out of play.

    Israel Folau
  70. Australia 0-0 Fiji

    Rob Jones

    Former Wales scrum-half on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    "Australia have plenty of strength in depth. There is an awful lot of natural rugby in this team. I think the balance that Michael Cheika has brought into this squad, in terms of experience, rugby ability and young players determined to make an impression, is fantastic."

    Israel Folau
  71. Australia 0-0 Fiji

    The referee announces that "we're going to play on, just tell him to move", which sounds a little harsh to me.

    Nonetheless, Stephen Moore's throw is gathered by Rob Simmons and Australia immediately spread the ball from right to left...

  72. Australia 0-0 Fiji

    Fiji, in white shirts today, are on the attack early doors but concede a penalty at the base of a ruck inside the opening 90 seconds, allowing Bernard Foley to boot to touch.

    Stephen Moore, the first hooker ever to captain Australia at a World Cup, will have the throw.

    But not before Fiji wing Waisea Nayacalevu receives some treatment for an early knock...

    Of course, that may be a little disrespectful to Fiji, who could throw the cat amongst the pigeons by beating Australia today.

    The Wallabies boast an imperious recent record against the Flying Fijians, though, unbeaten in their last 15 meetings.

    They've only crossed paths once before at a Rugby World Cup, a game which Australia won 55-12 in the group stage of the 2007 tournament.

    Adam Ashley-Cooper and Matt Giteau, both involved this afternoon, were among the try-scorers that day.

    Toulon's Matt Giteau, who is available after the Australian Rugby Union relaxed rules over overseas-based players in April, starts at centre.

    Fiji are without flanker Dominiko Waqaniburotu, who was handed a one-week suspension for a tip-tackle on wing Jonny May in his team's 35-11 defeat by England on Friday.

    He is replaced by Clermont Auvergne's Peceli Yato, while Stade Francais hooker Tuapati Talemaitoga, Ospreys lock Tevita Cavubati and Harlequins number eight Netani Talei also come in.
