Fiji schoolboys beat New Zealand for first time
September 28, 2013
Fiji Under 18s claimed an historic first victory over their New Zealand rivals on Friday night.
The Fiji schoolboys, who defeated the New South Wales Country Under 18s 74-10 in the first game of their Australia tour on Tuesday, edged out the Kiwis 22-20 thanks largely to first half tries from Seveci Nakailagi and Rupeni Vakasilimi with Sakiusa Boletawa and Viliame Kikau adding further scores after the break - the latter converted by Manoa Nakolilevu to give his side the win.
