Figure image
Pacific Nations champions Fiji - with Seremaia Bai and Vereniki Goneva among the replacements - were beaten 14-3 by Georgia in Suva on Friday.

Georgia ended their Pacific tour on a winning note with a try from fly-half Lasha Khmaladze shortly after half-time and three penalties from full-back Merab Kvirikashvili. Fiji’s only score came from a Ben Volavola penalty in the first half as they reached the break level at 3-3.
The Georgians returna home undefeated after a draw with Samoa and a win over Tonga on the tour.
Bai returns to Fiji this summer after two seasons with Tigers and will retire with 53 caps, while Goneva moves on to Newcastle Falcons for the start of the 2016/17 season.
