The Rooster Chicken Fijiana 15s side went down to Japan 28-14 in the Tri-Series Competition at the Bond University Oval in Australia.

Fijiana started the match strongly camping close to Japans try-line for the first 10 minutes.

Younis Bese finally got a break 45 metres out and showed blistering speed before scoring the opening try.

The second try came from centre Roela Radiniyavuni after a line break, beating three defenders to score.

Discipline became an issue for the rest of the game as Japan scored two tries to level the scores 14-all at the break.

Fijiana continued to give away multiple penalties in the second half which led to a yellow card and Japan being awarded a penalty try.

Japan continued to use their set-piece effectively and scored a team try from a rolling-maul minutes before the final whistle.

Fijiana will now face the Wallaroos at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane at 7pm next Friday.
