Sport: Tonga finish 5th at Junior World Rugby Champs

9:16 am on 10 June 2013

Tonga finished the Junior World Rugby Trophy in fifth place after beating Portugal 27-7 in Temuco, Chile.

The Kingdom missed out on a place in the final after losses to Canada and Japan in pool play, either side of a win against Uruguay.

Their final placing is a drop of two spots from their 2012 effort, and means they will again contest the second tier tournament next year.
