Sport: Fiji and Samoa end U20 rugby pool phase without a win

10:29 am on 14 June 2013

Fiji and Samoa have ended the group stages of the Under 20 World Rugby Championship without a win.

The Baby Manu were pipped 36-33 by Scotland in their final group match on Friday.

Discipline again proved costly for the Baby Manu with the Scots crossing for two tries early in the second half after flanker Natal Malaki was shown a yellow card.

Samoa fought back from a 14 point deficit to level the scores at 33 all before a penalty with two minutes remaining consigned them to their third straight defeat.

Meanwhile Fiji were outclassed 46-12 by Australia with lock Sailasa Kerekere spending ten minutes in the sin bin.
