Pisi kicks Samoa to victory over Fiji
June 21, 2014
Tusi Pisi kicked six penalties to guide Samoa to an 18-13 win over Fiji in the Pacific Nations Cup.
Pisi, who last week kicked all of Samoa's points in their 15-0 win over Italy, gave his side a 15-5 lead at the break, with center Nemani Nadolo scoring the first of Fiji's two tries in the 11th minute.
Fiji's win winger Naplioni Nalaga went over two minutes after the re-start - both tries were unconverted - and then Nadolo scored a penalty to cut Samoa's lead to two points. But Pusi's sixth kick out of seven attempts after 55 minutes completed the scoring.
Three players received yellow cards in the match - Samoa captain David Lemi, his team-mate Fautua Otto and Fiji's Leone Nakarawa.
