THE streets of central Paris bellowed with smoke on Saturday night as thousands of protestors clashed with police over rising fuel prices; and the Flying Fijians added to the flames and uproar with a sizzling 21-14 victory over the Tricolores at nearby Stade de France.

In truth, Fiji won this game from start to finish. They outplayed, out-tackled and out-thought the Jacques Brunel side that had defeated Argentina 28-13 a week earlier.

Sensational tries from Semi Radradra and Josua Tuisova did the early damage, with fly-half Ben Volavola controlling play well throughout and kicking 11 points so that in the end Fiji didn’t need any of their three disallowed tries.
