Warren Gatland states Wales willweigh up their options as it has to do with their fly-half cover for their closing Pool D battle on Sunday.
Wales, who have already secured a spot in the quarter-finals, will be without Dan Biggar when they play Uruguay on Sunday after he was ruled out because of an accidental clash with Liam Williams contrary to Fiji.
He [Dan Biggar] didnt do an HIA (Head Injury Assessment), said Gatland. It was only because of the contact that he was taken out of the field.
It means hes not accountable for Sunday and he will need to go through the protocols. Well likely have someone to take a look in him as well.
Rhys Patchell must commence against Uruguay and replaced Biggar.
It renders Gatland having a decision to make over who behaves as bench-cover for the position.
Its if we go to get a few players backing up, especially a few the backs, the head coach said.
We might go for a 6-2 [six forward, two springs ] split. We have got some excellent nines, we might take a look at this. Obviously Hadleigh Parkes has been talked about and Liam Williams.
Weve been running Hallam Amos a lot of 10 in practice and hes looked quite sharp there also. We will just weigh up those options as to that we believe can do a fantastic job for us.
Fijis physicality at Oita Stadium impacted upon their competitors, together with Gatland admitting that there weresome sore bodies in the Wales dressing room.
Look theres a few dead legs with Josh Adams and Jonathan Davies has a bit of a whack on his knee, Gatland said, but added that the prediction for both is favorable.
Obviously with Dan Biggar it was a removal from this field. Apart from that, guys are only a bit sore and battered after a tough and physical game.
Fiji held a lead in the second half of Patchells boot and surged 10-0 forward and also tries from Williams and Adams .
We understood that Fiji were likely to be demanding. Theyve got some complete best athletes, additional Gatland. For us it was disappointing to concede a penalty from this beginning of the match, which they scored off.
Gatland urged his side not to get complacent after attaining the quarter-finals.
Were absolutely delighted, he said. Everybodys goal is to attempt to get out of your swimming pool and if you do that then its about taking one match at a time.
However, I really do just want to worry that we can not start thinking about quarter-finals. I know that were from the quarter-finals but we have got a job to do on Sunday.
For the gamers on Sunday, it is to stick up their hands and stake a claim to get a quarter-final berth or maybe possibly for later on in this tournament.
