Saturday 12 November 2016 Written by: Adam

Takulua, who led Tonga’s pre-match Sipi-Tau, scored a try and kicked four conversions from four as his side defeated Spain 28-13 in Madrid.

Newcastle lock Nick Civetta earned his first international cap after starting for the USA in their 23-10 loss to Romania in Bucharest – Evan Olmstead completing the trio of Falcons in test match action.

The lock-forward started for Canada in their 52-21 defeat to Ireland in Dublin, the visitors having shocked the Aviva Stadium crowd by drawing level 14-14 at half-time before Ireland pulled away.
