Elusive winger Lepani Raiyala scored the try that saved the Telecom Fijian Warriors from an embarrassing defeat against Tonga A in the World Rugby Pacific Challenge match last night.

Holding a slender 31-30 lead the Warriors led by skipper Mosese Voka fought back and Raiyala was on hand to crash over for the try that cemented their 38-30 win.

Warriors head coach Senirusi Seruvakula was not happy with their performance.

“It was our discipline that allowed Tonga to come back at us,” he told SUNsports.

“We opened opportunities for them and I’m very disappointed that we did not play according to our game plan. There’s a lot of areas we need to work on.”
