Fiji bounced back from their shock defeat to Uruguay with an impressive 45-10 bonus-point win over Georgia in the World Cup this morning.
Georgia trailed by just four points at half-time but the Fijians went into overdrive in the second half, scoring six of their seven tries after the break.
Semi Radradra was the star man on the day, making Rugby World Cup history by becoming the first player from a non-Tier One nation to be directly involved in five tries in a single World Cup game.
The Bordeaux man bagged two tries and assisted three more in a sensational performance. He also made 177 metres which is the most of the tournament so far and made 5 clean breaks.
