Pacific Islands take last Student spot

The Pacific Islands have joined Australia, England and Scotland in the semi-finals of the Student World Cup.

The Islanders are in the last four, and will meet Scotland in Friday’s semi-finals, courtesy of a 40-12 win over Wales in Sydney today.

England, meanwhile, face Australia, who will top Group A regardless of how they fare against Ireland in today’s delayed result, in the other semi-final.

Wales will play Ireland in the `wooden spoon’ game, also on Friday.

Reports on all games will feature in Monday’s League Express.
