Speed­ster Simon Wise scored a hat-trick as the Fiji Res­i­dents beat NRL Af­fi­lated States 26-18 in a epic clash at Lawaqa Park in Si­ga­toka last night. The Joe Ra­bele-coached side scored five tries to three un­der chilly and windy condition on the Co­ral Coast.

Wise and Ilaitia Volavola led the on­slaught as the Res­i­dents led 20-4 lead at half­time.

The visi­tors scored three tries and a con­ver­sion to close the gap 20-18. But in 79th minute Pio Seci scored un­der the posts af­ter a good or­ches­trated move. Ra­bele saluted the play­ers af­ter the fi­nal whis­tle. “I am happy with the vic­tory. I told the boys to keep their cool.” Edited by Osea Bola
