Fiji Water Flying Fijians captain Waisea Nacayacalevu says he is proud of the efforts shown by the boys as they created history by defeating Australia 22-15 in their second Rugby World Cup match this morning.

Fiji last defeated the Wallabies in 1954.

Nayacalevu says what he told the boys today is that today is their final.

He also told them that today will determine whether they want to go up to the quarters, so their mindset was to do or die, do their best, fight to the end, and the result will take care of itself.

Fiji is currently in second place with 6 points in their pool, whereas Wales leads with 10 points, and the Wallabies are third with 6 points.

The Flying Fijians will meet Georgia at 3.45am on the 1st of October.
