Wing Josh Adams scored a hat-trick to guide Wales to the World Cup quarter-finals with a pulsating 29-17 victory over Fiji in Oita.
Wales came from 10-0 down and overcame an early Fiji onslaught in a bruising battle in Oita.
Full-back Liam Williams also crossed late to secure a bonus point.
The victory came at a cost with injury doubts for the rest of the tournament over fly-half Dan Biggar and centre Jonathan Davies.
Cardiff Blues wing Adams limped off in the final minutes, injured in scoring his third try.
Both sides had two players yellow-carded in a frenetic encounter in which Fiji excelled in broken play.
It was a third victory after previous wins over Georgia and Australia. Wales now top Pool D and in line to win the group by defeating Uruguay in four days’ time.
Wales will be without Biggar for that final pool match after he suffered a second head injury in successive games and will be a doubt for a quarter-final, probably in 11 days in Oita.
Davies will also be a doubt for the knockout stages after picking up a knee injury.
Assuming Wales clinch Pool D with victory over Uruguay, Warren Gatland’s side will play the Pool C runners up.
That will be either England or France with the two sides scheduled to meet in a group decider on Saturday.
Spare a thought for the Fijians who experienced a mixed tournament with defeats against Australia and Uruguay and an impressive 45-10 victory over Georgia.
