Nadolo scores three in Flying Fijians victory in Lautoka

CRUSADERS giant winger Nemani Nadolo scored a hat-trick as the Vodafone Flying Fijians beat Cook Islands 108-6 to qualify for the 2015 Rugby World Cup in England.

Nadolo was very emotional watching from the sideline, coming off the match in the second spell after touching down three times and converting two of the five tries in the opening half.

The Crusader did not feature for the seven-time Super Rugby champions last night as he was on duty with the Flying Fijians at Churchill Park in Lautoka yesterday.

The 26-year-old, standing at 6 feet 5 inches and weighing 125 kilograms increased his try tally to 12 from 14 Test outings for Fiji.

The winger who is preferred at inside-center when on duty for Fiji will be hoping to maintain his Super Rugby form when he rejoins the Crusaders.

Nadolo had mixed performance in the opening 30 minutes but then he settled well into the game after scoring his first try.

He completed his hat-trick in the second spell. Meanwhile, Metuisela Talebula, Timoci Nagusa, Adriu Delai and Nikola Matawalu scored all crossed the tryline twice.

Vodafone Flying Fijians head coach John McKee said he was pleased with the performance of the players.
