A full strength Tonga took-on a USA Eagles team missing all of its Aviva Premiership players in Gloucester on Saturday evening. With the North Americans having lost access to English based players due to the scheduling of the test match in Chicago v New Zealand on a non-sanctioned date the Pacific Islanders went in as heavy favorites and won with the USA errors handing them two of their five tries. The USA, nonetheless, opened strongly with Folau Niua  feeding Tim Stanfill for a well-taken try. John Quill also crossed for the North Americans who will face Japan at the same venue during Rugby World Cup 2015. Tonga's five tries to two victory The USA will now face Fiji in Vannes, France this coming Friday while Tonga will take-on Scotland in Kilmarnock.
