For their second match earlier today, Niue went up against Fiji and came out as the winning champions.
Another tough match with 16 points for Niue to 14 points for Fiji.
“Niue wins on the hooter. Great game in very wet weather, credit to Fiji for bringing it today,” according to Auckland Niue Rugby League Inc’s recent Facebook post.
Tomorrow Niue will face off Tokelau for their third and final match of the tournament before the finals on Sunday 29th January.
Niue needs to win at least two out of their three matches to make it into the finals on Sunday.
