Wales moves on to the Rugby World Cup semi-finals after a dramatic one-point victory over France.

France was in the lead heading into the final ten minutes of the game until Ross Moriarty scored a try in the 73rd minute. Wales trailed France for most of the game.

French lock Sébastien Vahaamahina got a red card after elbowing Welsh player Aaron Wainwright. Wainwright was the player of the match afterwards.

Wales will face either Japan or South Africa in the semi-finals. The host country will play South Africa later today.

England and New Zealand will also face off in the semi-finals in Japan.
