THE Nauru Chiefs once again proved too strong for the Fiji Tribe winning 75-35 in the Aussie Rules Football second Test match at Albert Park in Suva yesterday.
However the result was a massive turnaround compared to the 147-47 the visitors gave the hosts last Tuesday.
Mesake Koroi was the star player for the home side scoring four times.
Fiji started the match on a high note to win the first quarter 21-14 but fell back in the last three quarters.
AFL Fiji chairman Robert Wolfgramm said it was a passionate performance from Fiji compared to Tuesday's match.
"There was a great improvement in positional play, holding structure and accurate kicking," he said.
He said Fiji would need to improve on discipline to do better in the final Test on Friday.
Nauru manager John Tannang commended the Fijians for reducing the scoreline compared to the first Test.
"Fiji played well, their tackling kept the scores close but in the end our skills came through to help us," he said.
He said Fiji gave away a lot of penalties and freekicks that allowed his team to take control.
The final Test will be played from 5pm to 7pm at Albert Park on Friday.
