THE Fiji U20 side will play in their third successive 11th place play-off at the Junior World Championships on Friday.

This was after they lost the ninth place play-off 12-38 to Argentina yesterday.

Wilisoni Lagi and Tubuka Vueti were the try scores for the Vodafone-sponsored side while Argentina scored four tries and were also awarded a penalty try.

Vasikali Mudu was yellow carded in the match, taking Fiji's yellow card tally in the tournament to seven.

Fiji has the most yellow card in the history of the JWC with 34 to their name.

Replacement prop Semi Tuikoroalau Wakolo told they did everything they could.

"It was really good, the boys played their hearts out, credit to the boys and the guys from Argentina, they really brought it to us and that's how the game goes, sometimes you lose, sometimes you win," he said.

"We played against a really good team; we did our best, everything we could do — the greatest team won."
