Fiji, Samoa too strong in Ohana Cup league match-ups

RNZ reports Fiji defeated the Canada Wolverines 26-12 in a full test match, despite only using locally-based players, while Samoa Residents thrashed their Tongan counterparts 40-6.

Tonga were also beaten by Fiji in Suva a week earlier and went into the match with a number of players unavailable.

Team manager Toa Kaufusi said they still played ok but the Toa Residents were too strong.

"I think the Samoans came totally prepared because they brought players from New Zealand and Australia to play in their team so it's all good."
