The Fiji Water Flying Fijians knew they still had a lot left in them after their heartbreaking loss to Wales last week and they wanted to prove that they could fight for a spot in the Rugby World Cup 2023 quarter finals.

Utility back Semi Radradra says they had to suck in that heartbreaking loss and flush it through quickly, which they did and came back strongly to beat the Wallabies 22-15.

Radradra says today’s win is very special as it hasn't been done in 69 years.

He says it is big for them as a team to win this kind of game and they are focused on another big one next week.

Radradra says their target this year is to win the RWC and he believes that nothing is impossible.

He says after this big win they have to refocus and reset for the next game.

The Flying Fijians will take on Georgia in their third RWC pool match at 3.45am on the 1st of October.
