Warren Gatland states Wales willweigh up their options when it has to do with their fly-half cover for their closing Pool D battle on Sunday.
Wales, that have secured a location at the quarter-finals, will probably be without Dan Biggar when they play with Uruguay on Sunday after he was ruled out because of an accidental clash with Liam Williams from Fiji.
He [Dan Biggar] didnt do an HIA (Head Injury Assessment), said Gatland. It was just because of the contact that he was removed from the field.
It means hes not accountable for Sunday and he will need to experience the protocols. We will likely have someone to take a look in him also.
Biggar was replaced by rhys Patchell at Oita Stadium on Wednesday and should start against Uruguay.
It renders a decision to make over who behaves as bench-cover for the fly-half position to Gatland.
Its if we go for a few gamers backing up, especially a few the springs, the head coach said.
We can go for a 6-2 [six forward, two backs] split. We have got some nineswe might take a look at this. Hadleigh Parkes has been talked about and Liam Williams.
Weve been running Hallam Amos plenty of 10 in practice and hes looked quite sharp there also. Well just weigh those options up as to who we think can do a good job for us.
Fijis physicality at Oita Stadium impacted upon their opponents, together with Gatland admitting there weresome sore bodies in the Wales grooming room.
Look theres a couple of dead legs using Josh Adams and Jonathan Davies has a little hit his knee, Gatland said, but added that the prediction for both is positive.
Clearly with Dan Biggar it was a removal from this area. Apart from that, guys are just a bit sore and battered after a tough and physical game.
Fiji stored a 17-14 lead at the second half of Patchells boot and jumped 10-0 ahead and attempts from Adams and Williams ensured the game for Wales.
We understood that Fiji were likely to be demanding. They have got some absolute world-class athletes, added Gatland. It was disappointing to concede a penalty from the start of the game, they scored off.
Gatland urged his side after attaining the quarter-finals to not get complacent.
We are absolutely thrilled, he explained. Everyones aim is to attempt to get out of your pool and if you do that then its about taking one match at one time.
However, I do just want to stress that we cant begin thinking about quarter-finals. Weve got a project although I know that were in the quarter-finals.
For the players on Sunday, its to stick up their hands and stake a claim to get a quarter-final berth or perhaps possibly for later on in this tournament.
