A scrappy but strong start from both sides eventually saw Australia taken the initiative and 2 tries from MOTM No 8 David Pocock in a 5 min period saw them lead 18 - 3 at the break. The Wallabies got a third on 43m but Fiji came back with an excellent riposte from Volavola on 60. Fiji had some individual brilliance but were a 7s side with limited support, whilst Australia had 4 - 5 men at each contact. It paid off!
