Warriors lose battle

THE Telecom Fiji Warriors side is determined to finish on a high despite losing the Pacific Rugby Cup title.

After beating Junior Japan 99-13 in its final pool match earlier this week, the Lance Whippy-coached side fell short in points difference to Reds A, which will play newcomers Argentina Pampas XV in the final.

The national side has won the PRC title for the past five years.

Fiji Warriors will play Tonga on Sunday in the 3th/4th place play off.

Team manager Joseph Browne said they had accepted defeat.

"We have forgotten that and are now focused on finishing in third place," he said.

"It was bit unfortunate we lost on points difference but the team performed well."

Fiji Warriors' opening pool game loss to Reds A (19-22) came back to haunt them in the qualification for the final.

Browne said the team had learnt some valuable lessons from the competition.
