The Fiji Airways Flying Fijians got a scare yesterday from their opponents Samoa with a close 24-22 win.

Fijian fans were on the edge of their seats at the ANZ Stadium in Suva as the Samoans closed the gap after being down 3-17 at half time – kicking off the Pacific Nations Cup (PNC) competition.

The win though is significant for the Flying Fijians. They are defending both the Pacific Nations Cup and their 10th spot in the World Rugby rankings.

The Flying Fijians take on Georgia this Saturday at 3.30pm at the ANZ Stadium. Georgia beat Tonga 16-15 earlier yesterday.
