In 2007 in Nantes, the Fijians won a thrilling encounter 38-34, costing Gareth Jenkins his job and sending the Welsh crashing out of the tournament.
Following Saturday’s win over England, an unlikely loss wouldn’t end Wales’ hopes, but it would undo a lot of the good work they did at Twickenham.
For that reason Gatland has gone with a near full-strength side, taking into account the horrific run of injuries that have affected the side.
Tyler Morgan is the latest centre to be given a shot, while maverick fly-half Matthew Morgan gets the nod at full-back as Wales try to cope with their latest casualties, Scott Williams and Hallam Amos having been ruled out of the rest of the tournament.
However it may be absences on the Fiji side that prove just as crucial, with Nemani Nadolo suspended and Nikola Matawalu missing with a calf problem.
In his time in charge of Wales, Gatland has never lost to tier two opposition, with the only defeats during that time coming when Rob Howley coached the team against Japan and Samoa.
Fiji are certainly a much better team than they were four years ago, when they were hammered 66-0, but with only pride left to play for, it remains to be seen if they can spring a surprise.
Of course they have had a much longer preparation time, having not played since their loss to Australia in Cardiff a week ago.
In that game they were the side coming off a four-day turnaround so theoretically they should have the upper hand from a fitness standpoint.
That wasn’t the case in their opening game against England however, where they faded in the last ten minutes, while Wales did the complete opposite in their comeback win.
Wales have slipped up in games like this in the past, but it’s yet to happen under Gatland, and with some key men out, it seems unlikely Fiji will become the first to do so.
Head-to-head: Everyone was salivating over the prospect of Jamie Roberts and Sam Burgess going head to head to last week, but there could be some even more powerful collisions when Roberts takes on Lepani Botia in Cardiff. The La Rochelle centre comes into the side for his first game of the tournament, and will certainly test the Welsh defence. A brutal runner, he produced one of the highlights of 2015 during the Pacific Nations Cup when he battered his way through a number of Tongan forwards on his way to setting up a try back in July. Roberts has seen it all before but Wales will hope he doesn’t take too much of a physical beating before the clash with Australia.
