Fiji’s restart game is looking more solid with Nacuqu chipping it short in time for Bukayaro who danced around the defenders to cross over for Fiji’s second try.

Naduvalo forced the turnover, winning a penalty for Fiji before and Maisamoa took a quick tap and dived over the try-line.

Naduvalo scored Fiji’s fourth try in the last few minutes of the first half to lead 26-0.

Fiji scored four more tries in the second half, one to Nacuqu, Tira Welagi and a double to Paula Nayacakalou to seal the big win.
