Pepes to play Fiji in final match

After two losses, the Pepes finally managed to register their first win yesterday, overcoming Tonga 64-56.

But with only the top two to advance to next year’s World Cup, the third placed Pepes will need to beat Fiji convincingly and then bank on other results from today and tomorrow to go their way.

After day three yesterday, the current standings:

Fiji (4), Samoa (4), PNG (2), Cook Islands (2), Tonga (0).

The showdown with Fiji will get underway at 7pm (5pm PNG time).
