The organizers of the Rugby World Cup started an investigation after about two-thirds of the spotlight failed towards the end of the heavily loaded match between Australia and Wales at Tokyo Stadium on Sunday.

Wales withstood a furious Australian comeback to achieve a 29-25 win in the epic Pool D meeting, and recorded their first win over the Wallabies at the Rugby World Cup since 1987.

The lights went out in the last 10 minutes, so commentators had to compare it to a low-quality game played in rural Australia, but referee Romaine Polite chose to continue the game.

Officials said they would investigate the cause of the lighting failure after the game.
