Wales struck back through a poacher's try from Aaron Wainwright, who gathered a loose ball and sprinted clean through, before Dan Biggar knocked over the first of his two penalties.

Japan's journey to the Rugby World Cup 2019 quarter-finals has captured the imagination of a nation and tonight's match against South Africa is set to smash all previous rugby television records and set another live audience record for sport in Japan this year. With France leading 19-10, Vahaamahina had just claimed a lineout five metres from the Wales line and his side were edging their way forward when he hit Wainwright with the elbow.

France lock Sebastien Vahaamahina's red card changed the game. Virimi Vakatawa went over to extend their lead at the break. "We haven't been like that but we probably continued in a similar vein to how we started against Fiji, which is slightly disappointing".

The red card shown to lock Sebastien Vahaamahina undoubtedly had an impact.

Vahaamahina can have no complaints about seeing red after elbowing Aaron Wainwright in the face right out in the open leaving Jaco Peyper no choice but to send him off.

British MPs do not assent to Brexit deal
If the deal is not ratified before October 31 and there is no extension a no-deal Brexit is expected to happen. Lawmakers stated the prime minister must honor their vote and request a Brexit extension by Saturday evening.

Wales face France off the back of four pool stage wins but winger Josh Adams admits Warren Gatland's men are still looking to deliver the ideal performance. "You want to take the advantage with territory and opportunities, which we did, and we broke them down and kept chipping away".

Ross Moriarty of Wales scores his team's second try.

"We not only can grind teams down with the pack we've got, dominate aerially with the kicking game, we can also move the ball around and use our threats in the backs", Adams said. This was especially the case as they were unable to add to their lead while replacement flank Ross Moriarty was yellow-carded towards the end of the first half.

They found their victor with six minutes to play when Ross Moriarty got over the line and Dan Biggar converted to give them a 20-19 lead.
