THE Fiji Warriors rugby team was beaten 29-10 by Uruguay this morning.
Fiji Warriors flyhalf 10 Enele Malele scored all of Fiji’s points in the match with a try, a conversion and a penalty in the match.
“Evidence of this was clear today against the Fiji Warriors. Uruguay was far better physically than in prior encounters against either the Fiji Warriors or Fiji’s test side. This was true across the park with Los Teros’ players being in great shape,” the American Rugby News website reported.
