Lanky Joseva Talacolo got the Fijians back into the game with a steal from a breakdown.

Waisea Nacuqu converted to put Fiji up by 7-5.

Rover Filipe Sauturaga scored a brilliant individual try in the 9th minute after getting a neat feed inside the Fijian 22 and racing away to the try-line and beating three defenders in a one-on-one situation.

Nacuqu converted as Fiji led 14-5 at the break.

Replacement winger Panapasa Qeruqeru sealed the match with the third try midway in the second half.
