• Fiji hit Tonga for six

    Fiji ran in six tries to rout Tonga 45-17 in their Pacific Nations Cup clash in Lautoka on Saturday.

    Nemani Nadolo was once again the star of the show, slotting all six conversions to go with a try and a penalty for a haul of 20 points.

    Thirty-eight-year old centre Sireli Bobo grabbed a brace as Fiji cut loose against the ragged Tongans.

    The win moved Fiji top of the table, although they will face tougher tests in the future, starting with Samoa at home next weekend.

    Fiji – Tries: Watisoni Votu (2), Nemani Nadolo, Sireli Bobo (2), Akapusi Qera. Conversions: Nemani Nadolo (6). Penalty: Nadolo.
