Fiji Under 20’s score try with handling skills that can only be described as unbelievable
This try from Fiji, was UNREAL.
In the past we have spoken extensively about Fiji and their ability to create scoring chances out of seemingly nowhere. But this really was unbelievable. How did they manage to get away three of those offloads? It’s a wondrous thing to watch that’s for sure. Fiji have struggled at times in this tournament but when we see them do things like this we remember why we love them so much.
Fiji ALWAYS brings the flair factor.
