Wales secured their place in the quarter-finals of the Rugby World Cup on Sunday with a 66-0 win over Fiji in Hamilton on Sunday.
Two tries from Jamie Roberts plus singles from Sam Warburton, George North, Scott Williams, Leigh Halfpenny, Lloyd Williams, Jonathan Davies and Lloyd Burns did the damage for Wales.
Rhys Priestland slotted five conversions and two penalties for Wales while Stephen Jones added four conversions.
The win ensured Wales finished second in Pool D, three points behind South Africa, with Samoa finishing third ahead of Fiji and bottom side Namibia, who failed to register a point.
Wales were rarely troubled against a Fiji side that failed to live up to their reputation throughout the tournament.
The win went a long way towards wiping out the bitter memory of the loss suffered to Fiji at the last World Cup in France where a 38-34 win to the Pacific Island nation meant Wales missed the quarter-finals.
Wales struck in the fourth minute when Roberts made good use of a lineout turnover to burst through some poor Fijian tackling to score.
Fiji were guilty of ill-discipline and were punished for it by the Welsh and in the 16th minute clever passing between Roberts and North ended with a try to centre Williams.
Warburton and Roberts were involved in more passing, this time with hooker Huw Bennett and number eight Toby Faletau to produce an opening in the 31st minute for North to run away to score.
Warburton then crossed seven minutes later for Wales' fourth try and with Priestland completing a clean sweep of conversion attempts they went to the break 31-0 ahead.
Fiji proved more competitive after half-time but were unable to capitilise on several scoring chances.
Wales managed to absorb the pressure, with Roberts scoring his second try in the 51st minute after North burst through on a finely-timed break.
A more orthodox try followed in the 60th minute when replacement hooker Burns secured the ball from a lineout and, after an initial attempt to score down the blindside was foiled, picked it up from the ruck and drove his way over.
Wales made use of their 45-0 lead to get their substitutes onto the field for some game time.
Fiji's situation was highlighted around the 65-minute stage when a promising break involving lock Leone Nakarawa and replacement Seremaia Bai was turned over and prop Gethin Jenkins planted boot to ball to kick into space in midfield.
The ball bounced wickedly and chasing wing Halfpenny got the bounce and crossed for one of the easier tries he will ever score.
Replacement halfback Lloyd Williams took advantage of dominant scrum power from his pack to race in for a simple try off a wheeling scrum in the 71st minute.
And an injury-time try to replacement back Davies completed the success for coach Warren Gatland's team on his old home ground.
