Tonga beat Japan to finish third at Pacific Nations Cup

Halani Aulika, Fetu'u Vainikolo and Sonatane Takulua all crossed over for the Tongans, with Hendrik Tui scoring Japan's only try.

Japan led 6-3 following two penalties from Ayumu Goromaru, before Aulika's 30th minute try was converted by Kurt Morath to give Tonga a 10-6 lead. However, Tui responded to put Eddie Jones's side momentarily back in front.
