Biggar involved in brutal collision and Adams injured in TITANIC World Cup clash with Fiji
What a Titanic clash this was between Wales and Fiji. Fiji were on some serious form in this match as they narrowly lost to Wales.
The men in Wales eventually came away with the win but their fans will be seriously concerned about some nasty injuries that occurred in the game.
Welsh talisman Dan Biggar was involved in a truly brutal collision with his own player in a collision that could have ended his World Cup.
Semi Radradra put in a titanic performance for Fiji, putting in some unbelievable tackles that tore apart the Welsh backs. Liam Williams took a huge hit from him in the end of the second half.
The main challenge was the Dan Biggar one and it was brutal here are two angles of it here.

That could very easily be a concussion there which would put Biggar out for weeks.
It was a fantastic game and Wales played brilliantly, but thye certainly paid the price for it with their injuries.
Josh Adams scored a hat trick for Wales in what was a brilliant game for him also. He had to come off shortly after this try though as the Fijian lads barrelled into him after the score.
The hand off, the offload 😍
