2019 PNC: Flying Fijians wins third place

THE Flying Fijians team beat Manu Samoa 10-3 to end its Pacific Nations Cup campaign at third place at the ANZ Stadium in Suva last night.

Samoa had an early opportunity to break the deadlock with two penalty attempts from flyhalf Ulupano Seuteni, 30 metres from in front of the uprights but he failed the conversion.

Fiji slipped past the Samoan defence but it was the finishing touches and the handling that let them down.

Ben Volavola put Fiji in front with a successful penalty eight minutes from the break after the Samoan forwards were caught offside 35 metres from the left of the uprights on the embankment side of Suva’s ANZ Stadium.
