The Fiji Junior Tribe lost to the Nauru Stars 28-9 during the AFL Under-15 Youth Oceania Cup at Furnival Park, Toorak, yesterday.
Coach Maciu Raida said silly mistakes cost them the game.
“Nauru gave us a good game in the first quarter where we led by a point (4-3) and in the second quarter we drew.
“The team lost concentration in the third quarter giving away penalties.
“We will try to improve on the next game.”
Nauru coach Zack Temaki said Fiji gave them a tough game. It’s a tight game against Fiji but we are glad we won.
“Fiji got speed but we had the advantage overall since it’s national game,” Temaki said.
The game continues today as Fiji Junior Tribe will face Pacific All Stars, Nauru will face Tonga and Fiji Junior Tribe will face Nauru again.
