- Pool C: Wales 28-8 Portugal
- Dewi Lake, Jac Morgan and Taulupe Faletau also scored tries
On paper, at least, this Rugby World Cup could not have started any better for Wales. Two pool games, two bonus-point wins and no suspensions to complicate the equation before next weekend’s pivotal encounter against Australia. Warren Gatland would have definitely settled for that healthy statistical return prior to the squad’s arrival in France.
It also made for a slightly less frantic finish than last week’s humdinger with Fiji, tries from Louis Rees-Zammit, Dewi Lake, Jac Morgan and, belatedly, Taulupe Faletau ultimately easing their side home.
