Fijians shine in Europe

FIJIANS Josua Tuisova, Isa Nacewa and Nikola Matawalu scored a brace of tries for their respective sides in the European Champions Cup clash last weekend.

Former Flying Fijian, Nacewa who is best remembered for a cameo appearance at the 2003 Rugby World Cup captained the Leinster side against Matawalu’s Glasgow Warriors.

He scored a brace of tries that saw Leinster beat Warriors 55-19 and at the same time secure a quarter-final spot. Though not on the winning side but Matawalu was equal to the task scoring a double as well.

Tuisova and Semi Radradra played a part in Toulon’s crucial 36-0 win over Benetton.

Tuisova who played on the right wing was at his best scoring twice to assist in the bonus point victory. They will now face Wales club Scarlets to decide their group winner. Radradra was slotted in as the inside centre.
