Fiji thrash Pooler

Fiji warmed up for Saturday's Millennium Stadium showdown with Wales by thrashing Pontypool.

Wales' management team Steve Hansen and Alan Phillips were among the 5,000-strong crowd at Pontypool Park and they saw the South Sea Islanders produce a stunning second-half scoring spree.

Fleet-footed wing Isaac Mow grabbed a brace of touchdowns in the second period to go with a stunning first-half try.

Api Naevo also joined the scoring against the Welsh League First Division side with a two try second-half show.

Pontypool actually took a first-half lead through two penalties from centre Jonathan Williams.

Then when former Newport full-back James Rowles intercepted a stray Fiji pass to race 50 metres and touch down under the posts, the Gwent side looked capable of making a game of it.

But they had no answer to the pace and power of the tourists, who fielded a sprinkling of their Test players after the interval.

Wales play four Tests against Romania, Fiji, Canada and New Zealand
