Tapper had a chance to get her double but a technical tackle by Ra native e Aloesi Nakoci denied her the try.

Fijiana tidied up their passes seeing Nakoci deceived the USA defenders with a wrap-around to race to the try-line.

The conversion by Reapi Uluinasau saw Fijiana lead 7-5 at half-time.

USA reclaimed the lead again minutes into the second half with a try to Ilona Maher.

Fijiana rioted after this seeing some technical play from captain Rusila Nagasu who made a volleyball pass to Sesenieli Donu.

A nice restart kick from Uluinasau set up well for Donu who won the ball and raced to the try-line untouched.

Fijiana will take on Great Britain at 12:14am tomorrow and then France at 8.29pm.
