Tonga qualify for RWC 2019 as Oceania 2

Live Coverage For Fiji Vs Samoa Today On Fiji One

Tonga qualified for the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan without having to play on Saturday after a hat-trick of tries from scrumhalf Henry Seniloli helped Fiji to a 38-16 win over Samoa in Apia.

Samoa's loss handed Oceania's second berth to Tonga, which is now in the same pool with England, France, Argentina and the United States.

As for Fiji, they finish top of the Oceania group and go into Pool D, along with Australia, Wales and Georgia, with a last spot still to be decided.

Vatubua ran off a pass from Nagusa to score in the 52nd minute and Ratuniyarawa crashed over from close range six minutes from fulltime. Once again Samoa pressed and the pressure caused ill-discipline from Fiji, allowing fly-half Pisi to kick three penalties to give the hosts a slender 16-14 lead at the break.

Meanwhile, the live coverage of Fiji vs Samoa will start at 1pm today.

"It was a great win and I think our bench was great and it showed in the second half. I'd like to congratulate Fiji for their win in the PNC", Lemi said.

"During this campaign, we've set ourselves a benchmark", he said.

BE joined by Samoa in their pool for the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

The third-placed team then faces a playoff against a European side, with the losing team entering the repechage tournament.
