THE BREAKDOWN | WORLD CUP BRIEFS

GATLAND DELIGHT AT WIN
WALES boss Warren Gatland hailed a ruthless performance after a 66-0 thrashing of Fiji booked a quarter-final clash with Ireland. Jamie Roberts led the way with two tries, while Scott Williams, George North, Sam Warburton, Lloyd Burns, Leigh Halfpenny, Lloyd Williams and Jonathan Davies also scored. Wales led 31-0 at half-time and Gatland said: “We could’ve easily slacked off but we kept working until the 80th minute.”

ROBINSON: I’M STAYING
HEAD coach Andy Robinson insists he wants to stay on despite Scotland failing to reach the World Cup last eight for the first time. Saturday’s defeat to England condemned them to an early exit but Robinson, who signed a new four-year deal this year, is still committed. He said: “I have a contract to 2015 and I have the desire to still coach Scotland. The way the players have gone about this tournament has fuelled my desire even more.”
