Half Time Report: Samoa 0 Fiji 14

Fiji withstood an intense spell of Samoan pressure just before the break to keep a clean sheet in the first half of the quarter final at Warrington.

That spell came ten minutes before the break as the Fijians held an eight-point lead.

They then added a second converted try as Wes Naiqama picked up a kick from Aaron Groom to score and add the conversion.

The centre had previously kicked the conversion to a fourth minute try from Groom and then added a tenth minute penalty goal.

Groom’s try came on the back of a sensational break from winger Akuila Uate as the Fijians stamped their authority on the tie in the early stages.
