WATCH: Louis Rees-Zammit's blistering sprint for amazing finish against Fiji

Wales poured it on late in their Autumn Nations Series match to claim a 38-23 victory over Fiji at Principality Stadium. Wales winger Louis Rees-Zammit scored what could well be the try of the weekend with his blistering kick and chase.

The young winger has quickly established himself as one of the fastest wingers in the game. This time, he was able to show his pace against Fiji, which is no easy task.

Wales were holding a narrow one-point lead with less than 10 minutes to go when Rees-Zammit exploded down the left side after kicking ahead.

Amazingly, he was able to make up the massive amount of space, beating two Fijian defenders to ground the ball with a few feet to spare.

There was some time taken to award the try, and on another day it may well have not been given, but the young flyer certainly deserved it.

Wales coach Wayne Pivac said: “That’s what he can do. You can’t coach that. That’s just express pace. I was just pleased for him because he was marked fairly heavily on the left wing.

“But I was really pleased he showed that individual brilliance and raw pace. It’s great to have him in your side when he can do those sorts of things.”

Sadly for Fiji, they were playing a man down after 25 minutes once Eroni Sau was red-carded for a swinging arm to the head of Johnny Williams.
