Flying start!

Maciu Malo

THE Vodafone Flying Fijians Pacific Nations Cup title defence campaign is on the right course after thumping Tonga 45-17 at Lautoka's Churchill Park yesterday.

The Akapusi Qera-captained side entertained the home fans with champagne and magnificent rugby display to score six tries to Tonga's two.

Fijian flyers Sireli Bobo and Watisoni Votu had a field day scoring two tries each with hard-hitting centre Nemani Nadolo and tireless flanker Dominiko Waqaniburotu also registering their names on the scoresheet.

Canterbury Crusaders winger Nadolo recorded 15 points during the game making him the top points scorer in this year's PNC competition.

Fiji needs to beat Samoa next week to successfully defend the PNC title for two years in a row.

Qera said the win was a good start to their campaign and thanked the players for the hard work and fans for the support.
