Speedster Simon Wise scored a hat-trick as the Fiji Residents beat NRL Affilated States 26-18 in a epic clash at Lawaqa Park in Sigatoka last night.

The Joe Rabele-coached side scored five tries to three under chilly and windy condition on the Coral Coast.

Wise and Ilaitia Volavola led the onslaught as the Residents led 20-4 lead at halftime.

The visitors scored three tries and a conversion to close the gap 20-18.

But in 79th minute Pio Seci scored under the posts after a good orchestrated move.

Rabele saluted the players after the final whistle.

“I am happy with the victory. I told the boys to keep their cool.”
