Wales completed a clean sweep of World Cup pool matches with a bonus-point victory over Georgia.

Louis Rees-Zammit scored a hat-trick as Warren Gatland's side topped Pool C to set up a likely quarter-final meeting with Argentina or Japan.

Tomas Francis, Liam Williams and George North also crossed for Wales.

Georgia threatened a second-half comeback after tries from Merab Sharikadze, Vano Karkadze and Davit Niniashvili.

But they depart a disappointing World Cup without a win.

Wales will learn their last-eight fate on Sunday, when Argentina take on Japan in a virtual quarter-final play-off, also at Nante's Stade de Beaujoire.

Samoa also have a slim chance of progression should they beat Pool D winners England and other results go their way.
