Fiji loses to Australia in Rugby League Semi Final
Fiji lost to Australia 0 to 52 in the Rugby League World Cup semi final played on Sunday, 16 November 2008. Despite the loss, Fiji has created much attraction due to the progress it made against more established teams to play Australia in one of the semi-finals. The team's progress has also created discussion on the need for more recognition of the sport in Fiji and its need for more sponsorship funds. One would expect more companies and Government now to home in on the sport in future.
