Niko Matawalu and Waisea Nayacalevu both finished with two tries each as Fiji thrashed Canada 47-18 in their final warm-up match.
The new Bath scrum-half limped off just before half-time after having scored two impressive tries and set up Nayacalevu for the first of his two scores.
With the return of Nemani Nadolo on the left wing Fiji didn’t squander any goalkicking opportunities as the Crusaders star finished with a 100 percent record from nine attempts.

GPS improver Chris Kuridrani heads a host of wingers eager to prove they should be in the Reds revival plans for Super Rugby.

That’s certainly the way Kuridrani, 22, Sunnybank stepper Junior Laloifi, 19, and University speedster Harry Parker, 21, have sized it up as wingers selected for Brisbane City.
