Fiji now sits at their highest position in the World Rugby Rankings.

The Fiji Airways Flying Fijians wrapped up their November tour on a high after the 21- 14 victory over France on Sunday.

It was their first upset victory over France.

The Sydney Morning Herald said: “Fiji will go to next year’s World Cup as dangerous outsiders with the ability to disrupt the established order, opening their campaign in Japan against the Wallabies in a group that also includes Wales, Georgia and Uruguay.”
