The World Rugby Pacific Challenge will be held in Fiji from 8-21 March.

The tournament will be held at the ANZ Stadium in Suva on March 8, 12 and 17th with the final on 21 March.

The round-robin competition includes Tonga A, Samoa A along and Junior Japan.

World Rugby Chairman Bernard Lapasset said the Pacific Challenge was a key developmental tournament, which created a quality competition pathway for our high-performance investment unions.

The Pacific Challenge helps local and academy players get beneficial game time, exposure to a high-performance tournament environment and potentially attract the attention of the national team coaches.
