AUSTRALIAN Football League Fiji men's Tribe team lost to South Africa in their third match of the 2017 AFL International Cup in Melbourne, Australia on Friday.

South Africa defeated Fiji 29-26.

The Simon Highfield-coached side recorded two losses and a win from their three matches at the competition.

"A tight contest match in Geelong and in the end it was not the result we were after," the AFL Fiji Facebook page wrote.

"The boys played valiantly and will have a lot to take away from the match."

Fiji Tribe defeated France 80-15 in the first match and then went down to New Zealand 76-6.

"We will look to improve against Great Britain."

Fiji Tribe will play Great Britain on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Fiji women's Vonu team will play Pakistan at 2pm (Fiji Time) today.
