Lakeba won the toss and chose to bat first scoring 97 runs after losing all its players in 28.3 overs.

Peni Dakai started well scoring 37 runs but faltered following a strong bowling from the visitors.

Western Suburbs skipper Matt Dyson was the hero for the side after taking five wickets for 41 runs after ten overs.

Fiji's own Viliame Yabaki also did well for the Australians with an economical 4-18 after 7.3 overs.
