France replied just before half time with an unconverted try to close the gap as Fiji led 12-5 at half time.

Fiji started the second spell with a try from Filipe Sauturaga before France replied with another unconverted try 3 minutes later.

Manueli Maisamoa scored Fiji’s final try with a successful conversion at full time to win the game.

Fiji’s second game is against Kenya at 12pm today and will play Samoa at 3.06pm later this afternoon.
