Oceania under 19s- round 2 tomorrow
3 days is not long to recover from a game of rugby and tomorrow will see a few tired boys line each other up in game 2 of the Oceania under 19s. Luckily they have the benefit of youth, the enthusiasm of youth and the super mentors around them to prepare them for this. When you have living legends like Brain Lima and Isatola Maka walking around you can see that the boys are just bullet proof when they are about.
Day 2 will see Fiji take on Tahiti, the home side will be looking to continue in the same style as their win over Samoa and Tahiti will be looking for a better performance against the Fijian's. Next up we see PNG vs Vanuatu, this will be a screamer as both sides have tones of pace and will unleash it at any chance. Both teams have similar body sizes and the tackle area and scavenging will be the key for the winning side.
Things will hot up even more in Fiji's sugar town of Lautoka when Samoa take on Tonga, they are both full of massive men and already it is make of break for Samoa, lose they are out and this pressure will bring out the best in them. Tonga looked very composed on day one and will be looking to keep this momentum in the right direction.
