Emerging Nations World Cup Niue vs Greece Cup Semi Final Preview

Niue have taken down some very good opposition on their journey to the Semi Finals, Malta and the Philippines falling victim to the giants of Niue, Malta going down 26-16 and the Tamaraws of the Philippines toppling 24-12 in their game. This demanding schedule could take it's toll on this big outfits gas tank, especially with some of the fast feet in the Greek side.

Greece's second place Pool B saw them come up against some equally stiff competition, narrowly losing out to Hungary in their 20-18 epic on the opening day, however, in very difficult circumstances it would be their 38-0 victory over Vanuatu that would book themselves a spot in the Semi Final.
