I know, I know, its a day late, but Australia did beat Fiji 52-0 to advance to the World Cup Final on Sunday night.
Fiji did their best but Australia is just way to good. It looked early on though that the scoreline could have pushed 80-100 but the Fijians managed to hold out Australia for a good portion of the game and kept the scoreline being too bad.
Fiji have done really well at this World Cup and the spirit in their camp has been amazing to see. There is also a lot of positive news coming out of Fiji in regards to how well received the World Cup has been and the game is sure to get a boost out of that over the coming years.
Australia did get some bad news with Brent Tate leaving the field with a hip flexer injury that is very likely to see him miss the final which is a real shame.
I’m sure Ricky Stuart would have liked a bigger hit out leading into the Final against New Zealand, however its hard to tip against Australia when you watch the type of football they are playing.
