It was after three minutes into the match that Fiji started to click with Aminiasi Tuimaba grabbing a double following some typical Fijian flair as the national side led 14-0 at half time.

Vilimoni Botitu was sent off early in the second half after taking a player in the air.

Fiji conceded successive penalties afterwards before Stephen Tomasin registered USA’s first try

Captain Paula Dranisinukula was sent off for a high tackle on Tomasin.

But it didn’t matter as Botitu ran over for Fiji’s third try before Alasio Naduva crossed over for Fiji’s fourth try.

Perry Baker had the final say in the match with a try but it was not enough.

Fiji will play South Africa at 12:51am tomorrow in their second pool match before taking on Japan at 6:35am tomorrow.
