Fiji U20 plays for ninth place

NINTH is the best finish the Vodafone Fiji under-20 rugby side can expect in the International Rugby Board Junior World Championship in New Zealand.

After losing all its pool matches, Fiji will play Argentina in the 9th place semi-final at ECOLight Stadium in Pukekohe, Auckland on Sunday.

The Salimoni Ravouvou-coached side lost to Wales 19-48, 5-37 against France and 0-38 against Ireland in the final pool match on Tuesday.

Indiscipline cost the national team dearly as the side copped yellow cards in all their matches.

In the main semi-final on Sunday, England will play Ireland while New Zealand will take on South Africa at the QBE Stadium in North Harbour.

Fiji finished on 11th spot last year.
