NNN Tubarua Youth took the Australia Schoolboys to the wire but fell short, going down 5-10 in Pool YC of the McDonald’s Coral Coast 7s youth division.
Despite a number of penalties in the dying minutes of the match, the local side could not capitalize as Australia doubled up on defense.
Locked at 5-all in the first spell, it was anybody’s game in the second spell and it was the visitors that strung together a few phases to send Hadley Tonga for his second try.
In another match, AJ Pallets Ba River defeated First Light Taveuni 20-5.
