THE Fiji Warriors side fell short of a point to reach a century after nailing Junior Japan 99-13 during its Pacific Rugby Cup match in Brisbane yesterday.

The Telecom Fiji-sponsored side scored 15 unanswered tries during the 80-minute period. The Warriors led 40-8 at the break.

Winger and former national sevens rep Vilitati Sokiveta scored four tries, nippy halfback Emori Waqa scored a hat-trick and Nadroga hitman Savenaca Rawaca touched down twice. Warriors team manager Joe Browne said they fell short of scoring a century.

"It was a tough game and we're happy about the win," he said.

"We led 40-8 at the break and we just failed to achieve our goal which was to score 100 points."

He said Japan played a constructive game.

"Japan played a very good game. It was tough, they played very technical but our boys just outsmarted them in all aspects of the match."

He said the win boosted their chances of retaining the PRC title after the final match against the Pampas XV on Sunday.
