In the crunch Rugby World Cup opener, Wales warns they face 'judgment time' and sweltering heat against old rivals Fiji...as Warren Gatland contemplates major selection calls

www.dailymail.co.uk, September 7, 2023
ALEX BYWATER IN VERSAILLES: Wales is expected to have a 'judgement time' in their World Cup opener against Fiji, but Warren Gatland's loss of their star fly-half has given the team a leg up. On Thursday, head coach Gatland and his fully fit crew of 33 players will trade the sweltering heat of Versailles on the outskirts of Paris for a similarly hot Bordeaux. The team will face Fiji in Bordeaux, their longtime adversary, a team that has competed in every international tournament since losing in Nantes in 2007.
