FIJI Water Flying Fijians coach Simon Raiwalui says there are areas the team will need to work on before the next match against Georgia in 11 days’ time.

The 22-15 win over Australia at the Rugby World Cup in France yesterday has been classed as the biggest upset of the tournament so far.

“It was a good game,” said a happy Raiwalui.

“I think there were two teams who play a similar style. I thought we controlled the ball better today, still a few mistakes out there but really proud of the boys to come away with the win.”

Raiwalui sad he was proud of the performance his team put in against the Wallabies.

“I think the boys wanted to keep us on the edge of our seat. We wanted to continue to play and play to win. I thought the boys were outstanding today.

“The set-piece was good, carries were good. It was a good win against a very good Australia team.

“We could have easily got distracted (after losing to Wales) but the boys prepared themselves, the result was a direct relation to the (preparation) the boys put in.”

Fiji will now have a weekend’s break before taking on Georgia on October 1.
