Fiji and Australia to contest Armed Forces World Cup Final

The UK Armed Forces’ hopes of remaining in contention for the Armed Forces World Cup Final, which will be played in Sydney next Sunday (16 July) have been dashed.

Fiji’s 40-6 win over New Zealand today means that they and Australia have both claimed four league points and cannot now be caught in the battle for the top two by either the Kiwis or the British.

UK Armed Forces will meet New Zealand, and Australia will take on Fiji, on Wednesday in the final `round robin’ fixtures, in what are effectively dress rehearsals for Friday’s wooden spoon game and Sunday’s World Cup Final.
