Pacific Test 2018: Match Reviews


With this round being a stand-alone round featuring numerous representative matches, we closely examine the matches in the Pacific Test, sponsored by Ox & Palm. The curtain raiser match featured the battle between Fiji and Papua New Guinea (PNG). The PNG Kumuls surprised just about everyone except perhaps themselves, as they ambushed the Bati, to eventually run out 26-14 winners. That match was a nice entrèe to the main match, featuring Pacific rivals, Samoa and Tonga.

Here are the respective reviews from the matches:
