Fiji celebrate qualifying for Rugby World Cup 2015

Qualified: Fiji

Fiji will join England, Australia and Wales in Pool A at next year's Rugby World Cup after they beat the Cook Islands 108-6 in Lautoka on Saturday.

Despite being 5-6 down after 27 minutes in the play-off for a place at 2015's showpiece, Fiji settled and cut loose for the next 50 minutes.

Nemani Nadolo scored three while Matuisela Talebula, Adriu Delai, Nikola Matawalu and Timoci Nagusa all picked up a brace apiece.

The impressive Fijians will now take a place in Pool A at the World Cup alongside England, Australia, Wales and a yet-to-be-decided team.

Fiji's opening game will be against host nation England at Twickenham on September 18.
