Fiji U20 qualifies for World Rugby Championship

September 9, 2018 5:12 pm

The Fiji Under-20 side has booked a place in the World Rugby Championship after thumping Samoa 58-8 in the Trophy challenge final this morning in Romania.

The Koli-Sewabu-coached led 22-3 at the half time mark and ran in nine tries to seal the match.

Filimoni Botitu scored a brace of tries while Viliame Suwawa, Meli Derenalagi, Simione Kuruvoli, Joseph Vuanivono, Ilikena Vudogo, Meli Turagaca and Nabetelevu Turaganivalu managed to score a try each in the game.

Fiji has been playing in the second tier of the competition since 2015 after they finished last in the Under-20 championship a year before.
