The 27-19 loss of the Fiji Airways Flying Fijians to Tonga means they have a lot of work to do before next year’s Rugby World Cup. The loss is a blessing disguise for the John McKee coached-side as they need to lift their performance if they are to compete against the Tier 1 nations.

  4. Viliame Mata: Played well, ran in a great try- 7
  5. Leone Nakarawa: Didn’t perform to the level that he’s known for- 6
  6. Dominiko Waqaniburotu: Need to improve on his handling skills- 5

  8. Akapusi Qera: Dropped a lot of balls not effective at No.8 – 4
  9. Frank Lomani: Quick off the mark but needs to control the game- 5
  10. Ben Volavola: Took wrong options and far from his best- 5
  11. Nemani Nadolo: Did not do much- 3
  12. Jale Vatubua- Overshadowed by Cooper Vuna, failed to get past the advantage line- 5
