Prince William said it was "exciting" the Rugby World Cup was back again after watching Wales' heartstopping win over Fiji last night in Bordeaux, France. 

Wales beat Fiji 32-26 in a tense clash at the Stade de Bordeaux last night watched on by William and Fijian President Wiliame Katonivere. 

The Prince of Wales' flying visit to south-west France came a day after his wife Princess Kate watched England defeat Argentina 27-10 in Marseille.

William, patron of the Welsh Rugby Union, was greeted by RWC director Gareth Davies, venue director Paul Couet-Lannes and WRU president Gerald Davies after arriving at Stade de Bordeaux yesterday. 

He then met Fijian President Wiliame Katonivere before taking his seat for the game. 

The Prince of Wales said: "I can’t believe another World Cup has come around again.

“It’s exciting when it all kicks off. There have been some good matches already. The France-New Zealand game was fantastic.”

Wearing a dark blue suit with a red and white tie, the prince also expressed admiration for former Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones, Test rugby’s most-capped player, who retired from international duty earlier this year and currently plays for French club Toulon.

The World Cup takes a break for a few days with the next game between France and Uruguay not until Thursday, September 14.
