THE Fiji U20 rugby team's hopes of a better finish is over as they lost its final pool match 0-38 to Ireland yesterday.

Vincent Sosefo, Ameniasi Natuiyaga and Aseri Robarobalevu were shown yellow cards in the heavy defeat that saw Ireland qualify for the semi-finals.

Ireland scored two tries and was awarded three penalty tries in the match.

Ireland coach Mike Ruddock spoke highly of the Fijian players after the match.

"Fiji to their credit did not lie down they kept tackling, were very competitive, big strong boys," he told irb.com. "This was not a game for fancy rugby, it was a game for control." At the end of pool play, Fiji scored 24 points in three games and conceded 123 points.
