  • Wales vs Fiji score, review, stats

    England 36Tonga 20 For the first 30 minutes of this test it looked like Tonga’s fairy tale might go all the way, but in the end England just had too much nous. The forwards in white were able to strangle the game when needed forcing the Tongans to make mistakes that Sackey...
