New Zealand almost went over for their third but a try-saving tackle from Jerry Tuwai denied them the try.

Fiji was down 0-12 at half time.

It was not until a minute was left in the second half when Fiji scored through Josua Vakurunabili to register five points on the score sheet.

Fiji, not able to win the restart, gave the leeway to Joe Ravouvou who scored the final try taking New Zealand into the cup semi-final.
