The Wallabies have succumbed to their second Rugby World Cup defeat in two weeks after being thrashed 40-6 by Wales in their Pool C match this morning, and this now opens up a great chance for the Fiji Water Flying Fijians to qualify for the quarter finals.
The loss has had the Wallabies one foot out of the World Cup and they will be relying on a miracle for either Georgia or Portugal to beat Fiji by more than 34 points, and the Wallabies to win with maximum points and a larger margin than Fiji against Portugal.
Wales came out firing in the first half scoring the first try in the 2nd minute of the game before the Wallabies replied with a penalty kick at goal to flyhalf Ben Donaldson to trail 7-3.
The Welsh suffered a huge blow early in the first half with veteran flyhalf Dan Biggar coming off the field after suffering an injury and was replaced by former Chiefs flyhalf Gareth Anscombe.
Donaldson converted another penalty to reduce the deficit before Anscombe converted another 2 penalties to extend their lead to 10 points.
Wales led 16-6 at halftime.
Wales put on the accelerator in the second half to score a further 24 points with Anscombe leading his troops well around the field.
The Wallabies had no answer to the Welsh devastating form and were forced into committing errors after errors with the Welsh side holding firm to their defence denying Australia any points in the second half.
Anscombe played a grand game for Wales which also earned him the Man of the Match Award.
The result today now has the Flying Fijians tasked with only winning their last two pool matches against Georgia and Portugal to avoid any more complications to the final standings of Pool C.
The Flying Fijians will take on Georgia in their next RWC pool match at 3.45am Sunday.
In another RWC match this morning, Scotland beat Tonga 45-17
