Slow motion footage of INSANE Fiji try vs Wales is difficult to stop watching

Fiji scored an incredible counter attack try from inside their own 22-metre line with just 14 men on the pitch to almost shock Wales on Sunday.

Midway through the second half in Cardiff Dan Biggar kicked deep towards the corner which was comfortably caught and marked by full back Seta Tuicuvu.

The Brive full back then took a quick tap and beat two Welsh defenders with ease before giving an offload over his left shoulder to centre Vilimoni Botitu.

Botitu then made a pinpoint pass to captain Waisea Nayacalevu who demonstrated an impressive turn of pace to reach the try line in the corner.

Fiji were already down to 14 players after Eroni Sau was shown a red card in the first half for a cheap shot on Johnny Williams on the sideline.

This spectacular try sent fans wild in Cardiff and extended their narrow lead and set up a dramatic finale at the Principality Stadium.

Fiji carried a 14-23 lead into the final quarter of the match but with a two-man advantage Wales came back with a late flourish to win 38-23. Full match highlights are available below:

Following full time Wales head coach Wayne Pivac said: “We talked about, from a defensive point of view, being accurate on the ball-carrier and not letting them get those offloads away.

“They got a few as they tend to do and started well. The biggest problem for us in those first 60 minutes was we had separation at the breakdown.

“They’re very strong over the ball. We talked about that all week long. That’s a concern and something we’ll be working very hard on in the week.

“One, that the ball-carrier look after the ball a bit better but also that we don’t have separation with the ball-carrier and the guy cleaning out the rucks.”
