Wales cruised into the World Cup quarterfinals by halftime and completed an easy 66-0 win over a disappointing Fiji at Waikato Stadium on Sunday.
In showery conditions more suited to the Red Dragons, they needed only a point to finish runner-up in Pool D, and earned it with a bonus-point fourth try right before the interval.
Their quarterfinal opponent next Saturday in Wellington was to be the winner of Pool C, either Ireland or Australia.
Wales scored nine tries, all of them converted, but two of them included forward passes missed by English referee Wayne Barnes.
The Welsh didn't need any assistance, as Fiji finished with a whimper in a World Cup campaign which began full of promise.
