Tonga qualifies for Rugby World Cup 2019

Fiji crush Samoa in Apia as Tonga qualifies for 2019 Rugby World Cup Tonga secures final spot in Pool C for 2019 Rugby World Cup

The win also means that Tonga has qualified ahead of Samoa for the Oceania 2 place in the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan.

Fiji will play in Pool D at the World Cup with Australia, Wales, Georgia and an America's qualifier - either Canada or Uruguay.

Samoa had five points, meaning a bonus point, a draw or a win would have taken them to the World Cup.

A try by replacement lock Api Ratuniyarawa sealed the victory in the 75th minute. Volavola kicked six goals from six attempts, converting all of Fiji's tries and a penalty from 55 metres.

Henry Seniloli scored a hat-trick as Fiji won 38-16 to lift the Pacific Nations Cup for the third consecutive year.

"We were our own enemies in the first half", McKee said.

The scene was amusing and action-packed, but really told us nearly nothing about The Incredibles 2 as a whole. For example, the Parrs' house is about to undergo big changes as Jack-Jack gets bigger.

"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.

"Of course we have also qualified for RWC 2019 and we will now focus on that".

"It is an ambitious goal as RWC is incredibly hard but you have to be ambitious to succeed". "We let Samoa into the game with a number of penalties we gave away in the first half".

Seniloli scored his second when winger Vereniki Goneva made a powerful break down the right flank.

A game of Quick Rip - a non-contact form of rugby played by boys and girls - was part of the curtain-raiser before the Test and will continue with regular weekly competition games over the next nine weeks in Samoa.

The likelihood is that Samoa will now end up alongside Scotland, Ireland, hosts Japan and a European qualifier in Pool A in 2019. The victor will face the Asia Rugby Championship 2018 victor for a place in repechage tournament.
