Fiji Junior Tribe has booked their spot in the final of the AFL Oceania U15 cup competition after defeating favourites Nauru Stars 6-5-41 at Albert Park yesterday.

The two teams will meet each other again in the grand final today at 1:30pm while Va­nuatu Volcanoes play Pacific All Stars in the third and fourth place playoff at 10:30am.

The Fijians were dominance over Nauru who only managed to score 3-5-25 in a fiercely fought contest.

The Fijian boys came out of the blocks quickly kicking the first three goals of the match before the Nauru boys were able to steady and register two of their own to close the gap at half time.

The game was terrific and the skills on show were first class. In the end the Fiji Jnr Tribe kicked away in the third quarter and the Na­uru stars couldn’t chase them down with Fiji registering the win.
