  • Congratulations Fiji. Love from Australia πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί

    As a Wallabies fan it's not just that you deserved to win that game in particular, it's also the years, the decades over which you have fed talent into other countries, especially Australia. I hope you go on to be real giant-killers in this tournament. No one deserves success more than Fiji.
  • I am an old British soldier and I suppose I have to be an England fan. I served in my time with Fijians in my regiment. Tam Tamani, Joe Luva and Sammy Vuniwaka. I would dearly love Fiji to win the rugby world cup, not only for sentimental reasons but also, I believe they can do it!

    Toso Viti! πŸ€πŸ–€ We are with you all till the end.

    Our God is good. πŸ’•πŸ™
  • As an Aussie, I totally tip my hat to Fiji’s performance today. The wallabies were outclassed in almost every respect. The three things that I thought were terrific about Fiji were their power and retention at the breakdowns, finding a reliable kicker who can slot penalties, and of course their never say die attitude. Quarter finals here they come. πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‰

    As an All Blacks fan, I was cheering Fiji the whole way o this match. No hate to the Wallabies at all but Fiji has been a sleeping giant for decades. The Fijian Drua awesome performances during this years Super Rugby season was an indication of how far Fijian rugby has come and has rippled into their international game. I reckon if they can keep this level of rugby up or reach higher levels as the tournament goes on, then I reckon they could even pull off appearing in the Final since they don't have to contend with the likes of the All blacks, Ireland, France and South Africa on their way to the Final. They beat England not so long ago and Wales were lucky to get that win if Fiji didn't drop the ball.

    I could blabber on but this rugby world cup has become even more exciting as the so called lower tier teams are pulling off upset wins through years of grinding, management, timing of peak performances and of course SELF BELIEF!!!

    Can't wait for the upcoming matches in the pool rounds :) LET'S GO!!!!!!
  • As a Bokke πŸ‡ΏπŸ‡¦ fan, my heart was with Fiji πŸ₯° Congratulations
  • If anyone had said prior to this RWC that Fiji would defeat the Wallies WITH THE BOOT, no one would have thought it possible at all !!! Monumental !!!

  • Love to holiday in Fiji, beautiful country and people...congratulations on making history, from a respectful Aussie.
  • As an African Australian it makes me proud to see Fiji finally become a household name in 15's, been a big fan of their 7's side since I started watching rugby! Congratulations my Fijian Brothers, unlucky Australia, hopefully this gets Rugby Australia to start focusing on building up homebred talents by investing in grassroots more! πŸ™ŒπŸΏ
  • im Australian and im proud of what the Fijian team has done here!!! congrats guys you deserve it
  • World rugby should put every dollar they have into Fiji. They're the one team that reminds you how rugby used to be played. Best team to watch by miles.
  • Congratulations to the Fijian team.A win that pacific islanders celebrate.Cheers from PNG.

    We witnessed something truly special! Congratulations Fiji πŸ‡«πŸ‡―
  • Hopefully Fiji will figure out how to obtain their own lineouts for the next game. If they do that, we'll see much better games from them.
