Fiji centre Nemani Nadolo scored a try among his 20 points as the hosts beat Tonga 45-17 on Saturday in their opening match of rugby's Pacific Nations Cup.

Wingers Watisoni Votu and Sireli Bobo both scored two tries and backrower and captain Akapusi Qera scored another as Fiji piled on six tries to two in a comprehensive performance.

Fiji led 24-3 at halftime but Tonga rallied midway through the second half with two tries in two minutes to replacement Viliami Fihaki.

Fiji calmly closed out the match with tries in the closing minutes to Bobo and Qera.
