Fiji and Tonga to meet for 87th time
July 15, 2015 4:20 am
The Vodafone Flying Fijians and Tonga meet for the 87th time in their history when they clash in the Pacific Nations Cup rugby tournament on Saturday.
Fiji has won 58 times, while Tonga has managed 26 wins, with three games having ended in a draw.
Last year Fiji thumped Tonga 45-17, while in 2013, the Flying Fijians won 34-21.
Meanwhile, this year instead of playing each team from the same pool like in 2014, each team will play the three teams for the opposing pool.
Following the three rounds of cross pool matches, the six teams will be seeded one through to six and will play in three final play-offs to determine who finishes first to sixth.
Also this weekend, Canada meets Japan, while the USA plays Samoa.
The Flying Fijians will take on Tonga at 3pm on Saturday at the ANZ Stadium and you can catch a live commentary on BULA FM with the voice of rugby, Graham Eden.
