Tonga grab first Pacific Rugby Cup win

11:11 am on 1 March 2011

Tonga A have broken their win-duck in the Pacific Rugby Cup after edging the Queensland Reds Academy 23-22 in Brisbane on Monday.

Fiji Warriors unbeaten run came to an end at the hands of the Brumby Runners in Canberra while Samoa A thumped the Junior Waratahs 35-12.

All matches featured a minutes silence to remember last week's Christchurch earthquake with players wearing red and black armbands.

The Pacific teams now travel to New Zealand for the second leg of the PRC, which will include matches against the Chiefs, Hurricanes and Crusaders development squads.
