Almost nothing could separate Australia and Fiji in the Men’s and Women’s International Defence Forces clashes that took place last Friday.

As curtain raisers to the Prime Minister’s XIII clashes, Defence Forces teams from Fiji hosted the Australian Defence Forces (ADF) at the ANZ National Stadium in Suva.

Kicking off the day, the Republic of Fiji Military Forces (RFMF) Women’s side fought out a 10-all draw with the ADF Women’s side in a historic clash between the two teams, before the ADF Men’s side defeated the Fiji Army Bears 22 – 20.

The clash between the ADF Men’s and the Army Bears is the first between the two sides since the Defence Forces World Cup Final in which the Army Bears ran out 44 – 12 winners at Penrith Stadium.
