Nemani Nadolo and Napoliani Nalaga ran in tries as Fiji scored 20 points in the second half Sunday to beat Tonga 34-21 and win the Pacific Nations Cup rugby tournament.

Tonga took an 11-0 with a try by Fraser Anderson and two penalties by Thomas Palu.

Tries for Sireli Bobo and Nalaga allowed Fiji to erase the deficit and leave the scores level at 14-14 at halftime.

Nadolo and Nalaga crossed after the break to give Fiji the lead for good and a late penalty by Seremaia Baikeinuku in the 34th minute put the result beyond doubt for Fiji.

A penalty by Palu and a late try by Tonga captain Nili Latu was all the scoring Tonga could manage after the break.
