Hard Luck For Fijiana

Hard Luck For Fijiana

Team Fiji women’s rugby sevens forward Priscilia Siata was almost in tears as they went down 17-10 to Australia and are now out of the Commonwealth Games medal contention.

With the scores tied 10-10, Siata copped a yellow card for a deliberate knock-on and gave Australia a new lease of life.

Strong tackling from the Fijians rattled the hosts as they forced them into making errors.

Miriama Naobasali ran in two tries for Fiji while veteran rover Charlotte Caslick also scored twice and pulled the match out of the fire for Australia. Australia and England have now qualified from the pool.
