Barbarians v Fiji - Live
Barbarians 43 Fiji 19
80 CONVERSION, FIJI, LUVENYALI! 43-19. Waisea Luveniyali adds the extras and that's the final act of what's been an entertaining spectacle. The Twickenham crowd saw an enterprising game of rugby and although the Baa-baas had to much class, Fiji also deserve credit as they never gave up and made the most of limited opportunities.
80 TRY, FIJI, ROKOBARO! 43-17. Fiji go in search of their third try and Alex Rokobaro rounds off after taking a fine pass from Kenatale.
79 CONVERSION, BARBARIANS, LAMBIE! 43-12. Lambie maks no mistake with the easy place kick!
78 TRY, BARBARIANS, DE VILLIERS1 41-12. The baa0baas attack from a scrum inside Fiji's 22 and Lambie launches a chip kick which Jean De Villiers gathers and dots down under the posts!
74 YELLOW CARD, BARBARIANS, VERMEULEN! 36-12. Vermeulen receives his marching orders for a high tackle on Rokobaro in the build-up to Seniloli's try.
73 TRY, FIJI, SENILOLI! 36-12 Henry Seniloli rounds off a brilliant move in the right-hand corner after running onto a pass from Alex Rokobaro, who combines well with Levani Botia to set up the score!
70 Matawalu sets off down the touchline but is brought to ground by De Villiers. The Fijian does brilliantly, however, as he gets his pass away to Tikoirotuma who is tackled into touch, just outside Fiji's 22 by Taylor.
67 It's all Baa-baas at the moment. The'yre over the line again but Coenie Oosthuizen fails to ground the ball as he is held up by three Fijians!
64 TRY, BARBARIANS, TAYLOR! 36-7. Tom Taylor gets in for the try but all credit goes to the Bok trio, of Le Roux, De Villiers and Burger who combine brilliantly in the build-up before Burger offloads to Taylor, who dots down!
60 Fiji are running the ball from all areas of the field as they try to narrow the gap. Matawalu is put into space, just outside his 22, but his light up when he spots the gap and he knocks on!
57 CONVERSION, BARBARIANS, LAMBIE! 31-7. Lambie adds another two-pointer and puts the Baa-baas further ahead.
56 TRY, BARBARIANS, DE VILLIERS! 29-7. De Villiers runs onto a pass from Luatua and dots down, with two defenders, in the left-hand corner!
54 CONVERSION, BARBARIANS, LAMBIE! 24-7. Lambie steps up and coolly slots the two-pointer!
53 TRY, BARBARIANS, PIUTAU! 22-7. Le Roux shows great vision as he launches a cross-filed kick which Piutau gathers. He then shimmies his way pat two defenders before scoring under the posts!
52 The Baa-baas attack inside Fiji's half with Burger, Vermeulen and Luke Whitelock carrying with great confidence. It all comes to nothing though as Keven Mealamu is penalised for side entry at a ruck.
49 Du Plessis sets off down the touchline and is heading towards the try-line! He hands off Bai but is brought to ground by a crunching tackle from Matawalu. Du Plessis eventually pinned for holding onto the ball on the ground.
47 The Baa-baas are awarded a penalty, just outside Fiji's 22, and Perenara takes a tap penalty. Le Roux joins the line at pace and stabs a chip kick through for Piutau to chase but the ball goes into touch.
44 The referee calls on the TMO to make a decision as Vermeulen and Sam Speight both dive onto the ball behind Fiji's try-line. The TMO rules that Speight got there first so Fiji can restart from their 22.
43 Willie le Roux is on for Cordero and the Springbok makes an immediate impact on the game! He launches an attack, from deep inside his 22, and offloads to Halai inside Fiji's half. Halai is eventually brought to ground by Levani Botia inside Fiji's 22.
41 Bai gets the second half underway with a deep, hanging kick. Perenara is under it but takes his eyes off the ball, at the last second and...knocks on! Schoolboy error.
Barbarians 17 Fiji 7
39 TRY, BARBARIANS, DU PLESSIS! 17-7. The Baa-baas launch a drive from a line-out inside Fiji's 22 and Du Plessis gets in for his second try as he barges over the line! Lambie misses the conversion and the players head into the sheds for a deserved break. There's been plenty of action and although the Baa-baas have been dominant, Fiji are by no means out of this game and will look to fight back after the interval.
37 CONVERSION, BARBARIANS, LAMBIE! 12-7. Lambie adds the easy two-pointer to extend his side's lead!
36 TRY, BARBARIANS, VERMEULEN! 10-7. Fiji take a quick tap penalty but a kick ahead by Bai is charged down by Vermeulen, who reacts quickest and regathers before scoring under the sticks!
33 The Baa-baas take the ball through several phases with their forwards but when Duane Vermeulen goes to ground Nemia Kenatale shows a good appreciation of the game's laws when he times his entry perfectly and boots the ball upfield.
30 Lambie, Perenara and Steven Luatua combine brilliantly inside Fiji's 22 but once again they fail to round off as the Fijians keep them at bay with resilient defence!
27 Piutau joins the line at pace but goes down after a big hit from Nemani Nagusa. Pituau knocks on and Fiji go on an immediate counter-attack.
25 The Baa-bbas attack out wide with their backs but Gavin Williams knocks on a pass from Jean De Villiers midway between Fiji's 10-metre line and their 22.
23 YELLOW CARD, FIJI, RAVULO! 5-7. Mala Ravulo is sent to the sin bin after he tackles Bird in the air at the restart.
21 TRY, BARBARIANS, DU PLESSIS! 5-7. The Barbarians attack with their forwards, close to Fiji's try-line and when Du Plessis spots a gap he burrows his way over from close quarters!
20 This game is turning into the spectacle it was expected to be! Both sides show plenty of enterprise on attack and are giving the ball plenty of air.
17 Matias Diaz runs onto a pass from TJ Perenara and gets in at the left-hand corner. His effort is disallowed by the TMO as well as his hand was in touch as he went over!
15 The Barbarians attack, close to Fiji's try-line but Codero is stopped just short of the line. From the ensuing ruck Bismarck du Plessis picks up and goes and stretches out over the line in a bid to score the try. His effort is disallowed, however, after the referee asks the TMO to check if it's been scored.
14 Steven Luatua attacks on Fiji's 22-metre line and offloads to Frank Halai, who passes inside to Schalk Burger, who fails to hold onto the pass with the try-line beckoning!
12 It's all going Fiji's way at the moment! The Baa-baas are on the attack, at a line-out on Fiji's five-metre line, but Bird knocks on the ball in the air.
10 The Barbarians attack just outside Fiji's 22 but make little headway. Bismarck du Plessis, Beast Mtawarira and Dominic Bird are all prominent ball carriers. Fiji are eventually pinned for being offside. Pat Lambie kicks for touch but his effort goes behind the try-line and the Fijians get out of jail again.
7 CONVERSION, FIJI, BAI! 0-7. Seremaia Bai adds the extras to extend the visitors' lead!
6 TRY, FIJI, TIKOIROTUMA! 5-0. Nikola Matawalu makes a break, from deep inside his half, and beats six players! He's soon inside the Baa-baas' half and offloads to Asaeli Tikoirotuma who scores under the posts!
3 Api Naikatini throws a lomg pass on his 10-metre line! It's a risky move and Charles Piutau goes for the interception but knocks on and Fiji gain a reprieve!
1 Pat Lambie gets us underway! His kick is gathered by Netani Talei, who sets up a ruck just outside his 22.
0 Just heard that Argentina's Manuel Carizza starts at lock with Mick o'Driscoll taking his place on the replacements bench.
0 Fiji has an under-strength side as the match falls outside the international window. Amongst the backs, Nikola Matawalu starts at full-back while exciting Chiefs Super Rugby speedster Asaeli Tikoirotuma is at outside centre while Seremaia Bai is at fly-half. Up front, Campese Ma'afu starts at loosehead prop alongside fellow prop Manasa Saulo and hooker Peni Ravai. Mala Ravulo and Api Naikatini are the locks and Nemani Nagusa starts at number eight.
0 South African lock Flip van der Merwe has been withdrawn from the Barbarians side after initially being picked in the starting XV. This after his Super Rugby side, the Bulls, refused to release the player on short-notice. He has been replaced by retired former Ireland and Munster lock Mick O'Driscoll. Schalk Burger is one of six Springboks in the Baa-baas' run-on side which also includes four All Blacks. Scrum-half TJ Perenara, the only uncapped Test player in the 23-man squad, starts at scrum-half. Jean de Villiers captains the side from centre alongside Gavin Williams while the former's fellow South African, Pat Lambie, wears ten. Argentina's Santiago Cordera is at full-back with the back three completed by New Zealand duo Frank Halai and Charles Piutau of the Blues. Up front there is Tendai Mtawarira, Bismarck du Plessis and Matias Diaz while Dominic Bird partners O'Driscoll in the two second row. Burger forms a strong back-row unit of Duane Vermeulen and All Black Steven Luatua.
0 Hello an welcome to Twickenham for this international match betweem the Barbarians and Fiji. There's plenty of excitement as this game will celebrate the centenary of the Fiji Rugby Union. We'll be back soon with team news.
