Fijians shine in Wallabies win

Fijian players got on the score-sheet in Australia’s 63-30 win over Japan in Yokohama on Saturday night.

Outside centre Tevita Kuridrani managed to score a hat-trick of tries in the big win while inside centre Samu Kerevi got a double and Henry Speight touched down once.

Kuridrani, Kerevi, Speight and Marika Koroibete took the field for the Wallabies in the starting line-up for the first time and created history as this was the first match for the Aussies to feature four Fijians.

The last time Australia and Japan met in a Test was at the 2007 World Cup, when Australia prevailed 91-3 over Japan in Lyon.

Meanwhile the Wallabies will play Wales in their second match of the spring tour this Sunday in Cardiff.
