Wales set up a Rugby World Cup quarter-final with Six Nations rivals France as they topped Pool D with a far-from-perfect 35-13 win over minnows Uruguay on Sunday.

A largely second-string Welsh side committed a slew of handling errors and forward passes with the line at their mercy but eventually had too much firepower for the spirited underdogs, and a late Gareth Davies try put some gloss on the scoreboard.

More to come.
