Kumamoto, Japan (AP) - Wales will play France in the Rugby World Cup quarterfinals after laboring past Uruguay 35-13 to top Pool D on Sunday.

After turning over the Uruguayans and winning a penalty early in the second half, Wales' attempt at the three points was thwarted by the woodwork, with Leigh Halfpenny hitting the upright from 45 meters.

His team were denied four tries, including two from forward passes, and committed a slew of handling errors on a flawless night for rugby.

"That will be the first time we have had that out here, which is really good".

"We were able to show how we have developed Uruguayan rugby".

"Dan is going through his protocols, and he had a scan as well".

Wales camped inside the Uruguay 22 for most of the first 16 minutes before they were eventually rewarded with a try.

Flanker Aaron Shingler broke through on the right wing to plant the ball by the flag in the 11th minute, but the try was disallowed as he was well outside the touch line.

After opting for a scrum, Wales patiently went through 14 phases before prop Nicky Smith finally drove over for his first test try.

Winger Amos completed a forgettable night when he failed to ground the ball following a surging run, leading to another Welsh try being wiped away in the closing minutes.

But only Uruguay added points in the rest of the half as flyhalf Felipe Berchesi kicked two penalties for them to trail only 7-6.

Bradley Davies was bundled back over the line near the posts by the desperate Uruguayans but the big lock's strong carry created an overlap out wide and an unmarked Josh Adams cantered over at the left corner after a long pass from Rhys Patchell.

But that could not excuse an often laboured, error-strewn display in Kumamoto as Uruguay - shock conquerors of Fiji last month - gave Wales a real battle.

Uruguay flanker Santiago Civetta was sin-binned for a technical offence 15 minutes from time, and Wales were awarded a penalty try shortly afterwards by referee Angus Gardner.

Uruguay were not done and fought back to drive over for a try of their own to hooker German Kessler.

In the face of Uruguay's scrambling, scrappy defense, Wales could score only four legitimate tries and received a penalty try.
